Sensor management

To add new sensor (engine on/off, acc on/off, battery, fuel tank, odometer, temperature, door open/close, GSM signal, GPS signal, sattelites, tachometer, etc.) for your object, go to Object->Edit object->Sensors->Add new sensor. But before doing that, take a look below at the scheme, how parameters are sent from gps device and how they need to be paired with sensors.


 

To check what parameters your gps tracker is sending, please go to History->Select object->Show history->Data log

(At the top there are parameter names and below - parameter values)



There are many parameter names like "sat, adc1, io21..." etc. So if you want to create an event for parameter "sat", then you have to input sat in the parameter name field. This will pair event with parameter.

Note: some gps tracker's, like Coban GPS306 OBD, are sending parameter names that are easily recognisable(odometer, fuel, rpm, etc.), but others, like Teltonika are sending them like ioXXX. To know the meaning of parameter names like ioXXX, you need to check manufacturer's user manual/documentation or identify them manualy, for example, trigger some sensors and monitor parameters at the same time like doors open, fuel level, etc...

 

ACC ON/OFF


  • Sensor name - in this field you can write in any name you like. This name will appear as sensor name in object details panel when you click on the object.
  • Sensor type - this is type of sensor, each sensor type has different parameters input options and behaviour.
  • Parameter name - parameter names are identified automatically once gps tracker is connected to the platform, select the coresponding parameter that matches your sensor.
  • Unit of measurement - this text will be showed near value, for example, if you define battery sensor, then you can type in % as unit of measurement, then you will see battery sensor like "battery: 25%"
  • ON value - please input parameter value to identify that acc was turned on. For example.: if parameter name is alarm: acc on, type in acc on
  • OFF value - please input parameter value to identify that acc was turned off. For example.: if parameter name is alarm: acc off, type in acc off
  • Setflag - is used to detect single or few characters from parameter value. Example.: 12345 is parameter value and „34“ is the value you want to use, so setflag would be: 3(starting character), 2(ammount of characters), 34(value of parameter)“.

Battery


  • Sensor name - in this field you can write in any name you like. This name will appear as sensor name in object details panel when you click on the object.
  • Sensor type - this is type of sensor, each sensor type has different parameters input options and behaviour.
  • Parameter name - parameter names are identified automatically once gps tracker is connected to the platform, select the coresponding parameter that matches your sensor. Example: battery: 75 (visible in data log) must be selected as battery. In the exaple above "sat" is selected which means that you can use any type of sensors with any type of parameter.
  • Unit of measurement - this text will be showed near value, for example, if you define battery sensor, then you can type in % as unit of measurement, then you will see battery sensor like "battery: 25%"
  • Show value by "Parameter value" - parameter value will be shown.
  • Show value by "Min/Max values" - for example if full battery value is 5, minimum 0, please type in 5 in the max value field and 0 in the min value field, so it will automatically convert it to percentage values. For example.: if value is 5 - 100 will be show, if value is 4 - 75 will be show, if value is 0 - 0 will be seen.
  • Show value by "Formula" - parameter value can be sent from gps tracker encoded and you have to use formula to calculate battery value. For example.: if value is 2850, then you can type in formula like "([value] x 3.3)/4096", for example: ([28501] x 3.3)/4096 = 22.96 %
  • OFF value - please input parameter value to identify that acc was turned off. For example.: if parameter is alarm: acc off, type in acc off

GPSWox.com user Mr. Antoine Bartolo review
GPSWOX has a good base functionality, which we can develop further to our specific needs. It also covers the initial starting point we required from multiple end with regards to app support, branding, multi-language, multi-device. GPSWOX also gives us security in term of long term customizations and regular updates, as well as the ability to provide basic driving quality reports, without obviously forgetting the value for money. Mr. Antoine Bartolo, Worldfone 1 Co. LTD
GPSWox.com user Enrique Pasten review
I started on the tracking business on Aug 2010. And found GPSWOX was my best option when they started business. I started with 40 units on GPSWOX tracking platform and now I track more than 1000 objects. After several years on using different tracking platforms I found the best way to do great business. and get the best support than any other platform.  Very satisfied to work with GPSWOX.

GPSWox.com user Jan Zitek review
High level of service and features offered, independency in terms of used features, realisation L/T, support and of course reasonable cost. As of today I have no claims or negative feedback. Beginning was a bit slower but our specification was not perfect too, after some clarification the level of service is pretty good – we are happy. Jan Zitek, My Simphonie
