Improve corner tracking on hard-wired devices (Bolt, G62, Dart2, G120)

While in a trip, our latest range of powered devices - Bolt, Dart2, G62 and G120 will log according to the following set of default parameters:

This means a log will occur if:

  • 1 minute passes (log at least every 60 sec)
  • The asset travels over 500m
  • The device experiences a 10 degree heading change over the course of 150 metres.

The heading change log means that the trips plotted by the device can follow the true path of the road, without clipping corners. 

The default parameters are somewhat 'loose' - and sufficient for most applications, providing a good balance between accuracy and data usage (not generating too many unnecessary logs). 

However if you find that the Trip History Map clips corners, making adjustments is simple. 

Just make the heading change logs more sensitive, for example, 

So if we experience a 60 degree direction change over a short distance (i.e. going around a corner) the device will generate a new log, so the corner is dotted on the map and we don't miss it. 

This will allow for results such as the below.
