Data Visualisation

We transform the data held within the fleet tracking service in a number of different ways, to help users quickly find the information they're looking for.


I/O Graphs

Each hardware device typically supports several different analog and digital interfaces. In some cases these are actual physical interfaces provided by the hardware, but we also provide pseudo I/O points as well, such as speed.

The historical values for each I/O point can be displayed on a graph, which obviously provides much more feedback than simply viewing a table of data on screen. It's also possible to combine several analog and digital values on the same graph which can prove useful when a relationship exists between those points, e.g. the opening of a door and the corresponding temperature within a refrigerated unit.

I/O Maps

Units which provide digital inputs can be configured to plot their operations on our maps.

The plot can either be an icon showing momentary events (gulley cleansed for example) or a line can be drawn showing the period and route of a vehicle state (road gritted or swept for example).

Utilisation

The utilisation view shows a Gantt-like representation of vehicle movement over the course of a day. Vehicle movement is clearly identifiable, and a single-click shows you the detail of each journey.

Two key types of utilisation view are available:

  1. The activity of several devices over the course of a single day
  2. The activity of a single device over the course of a whole month.

Territory plot

The territory plot allows the locations visited by different devices to be compared on a map. The resulting display can be useful in identifying overlapping territories, or conversely areas that haven't been covered by any vehicle.
