Vehicle readings

The report showcases data received from your vehicle's instruments through the CAN/OBD or virtual sensors for any selected time period, including mileage, engine RPMs, speed, fuel consumption, coolant temperature, and more.

To access this information in the report, you'll need:

  1. A device that supports CAN/OBD readings on the platform. You can verify if the CAN/OBD data reading from a specific sensor type is supported by checking the list of supported inputs for any model.
  2. A vehicle capable of transmitting certain CAN/OBD data to the installed model of the device. This information can be confirmed with the vehicle manufacturer.
  3. Data from the device and sensors.
  4. Configured measurement CAN/OBD or virtual sensors on the platform.

Report Parameters

The following parameters are utilized in the report:

  1. Detail interval: displays the received readings in the data detail table in 30-minute, 1, 3, or 6-hour increments. The graph will show all points received from the sensor.
  2. "X" axis on the graph: choose whether to display the information in the graph in relation to time or mileage.
  3. Smooth graph: apply smoothing to the graph if there is a significant difference in the received data. The platform will filter out peak values and attempt to average the data.

For each device, you need to select the sensor for which to generate a report. Only devices with configured measuring or virtual sensors will appear in the list of available options.

The virtual sensor must use source value calculation method. If you select a virtual sensor with a different calculation method, the report will return with "This is not a measurement sensor."

Graph with a sensor readings

Displays CAN/OBD or virtual sensor readings in graphical form.

If you hover over any point on the graph and the X-axis is set to time, you'll receive two crucial pieces of information: the exact time when the data was received, and the associated sensor value.

Alternatively, if you choose mileage as your X-axis, you'll be provided with the sensor value and the accumulated mileage at the exact moment the data was received. The mileage tally starts from the beginning of the report period, providing a view of sensor data within that specific timeframe.

Statistics data table

Contains statistical data about the readings by day.

The data is organized in the following columns:

  • Date
  • Minimum
  • Maximum
  • Average Value: based on all received data per period.

Please note that the units of measure may vary based on the type of sensor being used.

Here's how to interpret the information in the first line:

On June 22, 2023, the coolant temperature ranged from a minimum of 77 °F to a maximum of 194 °F. The average coolant temperature recorded for that day, based on all readings, was 174.87 °F.

Data breakdown table

The table displays readings relevant to the specified time interval, beginning from the current moment and extending to the next increment. For instance, if you're looking at a report with 30-minute increments, the data in the 00:00 row pertains to the 00:00 to 00:30 time slot.

While the sensor has the ability to transmit data much more frequently, the table primarily showcases statistical information corresponding to each presented interval.

If you come across an interval marked as "No data", it indicates that no readings were received from the sensor during that specific timeframe. This could be due to several reasons:

  • The device did not send any CAN/OBD or virtual sensor data during that period. This could be because the sensor's settings did not permit the transmission of data during that time.
  • The unit did not send any data during this period. This could be because it was either turned off or detached from the object being monitored.

The data is displayed in columns with the following values:

  • Time: this represents the time interval starting from the specified time to the next increment.
  • Value: this is the sensor reading recorded closest to the time specified in the first column.
  • Minimum: this is the lowest value recorded within the interval before the next increment.
  • Maximum: this is the highest value recorded within the interval before the next increment.
  • Average: this is the mean of all sensor readings received within the interval.

Here's how to interpret the first line of the example:

On June 22, 2023, from 10:30 AM to 11:00 AM, the average coolant temperature was recorded at 164.75 °F. The sensor reading closest to the 10:00 AM mark was 77 °F, which also happened to be the lowest temperature during this interval. Conversely, the highest temperature recorded during this time frame was 192.2 °F.


The report is designed to showcase readings from the CAN/OBD or virtual sensors recorded by the platform. This makes it a valuable tool for anyone looking to monitor data received at various intervals. Depending on the type of information your sensor provides, you can:

  • Analyze data from the vehicle's instrumentation such as engine temperature, coolant levels, on-board voltage, and more. This can help diagnose potential vehicle issues and address them before they escalate into major, costly repairs.

  • Monitor engine load over time to understand how drivers are operating the vehicle. For instance, this can be done using an engine RPM sensor.
