Retrieve intervals option to Geofences/Units filter

Topic: Retrieve intervals option to Geofences/Units filter

Dear Colleagues and Gurtam Developers,

Is it possible to make a digital sensor wich is triggered by geofences? (If the position is in the geofence it's value is 1, if out it is 0)
We would like to use it as a validator for other sensors for exaple as an ignition validator (not null check).

Our main problem is that we can't make a report wich contains the geofences and fuel level data at the same time. (or it is not working properly)

At the reports if we add table about Geofences there is no fuel data available (it is pitty because this is the only way where the km counting, AVG speed calculating,  in time spending works well). The detalization is is not working with the geofence names, that would be useful also..

If we make a report from trips, engine hours, etc. we can set Geofences as a filter (Geofences/units  in/out/none at each geofence ) than the km, time, speed and other parameters calculating provides false data/answer because it counts not only with that period when the positions were in the geofences (see attached picture).

It would be great if we could solve this problem! Any idea how can we make Geofence reports with fuel data (calculated only that period when the unit was in a geofence) would be great!

We are still interested in a proper fuel usage/geozone report. Does anyone have any good ideas?
Thanks!

Re: Retrieve intervals option to Geofences/Units filter

Thank you for your proposal.
I will recite it into Russian so that other forum visitors could discuss it and vote.

Проблема в том, что нет возможности получить посещения геозон и данные по топливу в одном отчете. В таблице "Геозоны" столбцов по топливу нет. В таблицах "Поездки" и "Моточасы" фильтр по геозонам работает так, что он не извлекает интервалы поездок в геозоне, а просто показывает те поездки, в которых геозона была затронута. Есть также предложение создать виртуальный датчик, который в геозоне будет присылать значение 1, и тогда его можно будет сделать валидатором датчика зажигания (а по нему уже определяются поездки).

Костыль, конечно, но при текущем функционале и впрямь не создать нужный отчёт иными методами.
Собственно, +1 к предложению партнёра из Венгрии.

Re: Retrieve intervals option to Geofences/Units filter

The lack of proper fuel usage/geofence report is still a big problem for
us. Do you have any future developement plans for solve this?

Re: Retrieve intervals option to Geofences/Units filter

Eflotta, there is no way to dynamically calculate the value of this virtual sensor, at least cause geofences are belong to resource and units are not. You can mark geofence entrance and exit with events (or just register data messages with some-param=some-value), but I'm not sure how this can be used in reports, try to check.

Or just think different. wink

At the dark side of telematics...

Re: Retrieve intervals option to Geofences/Units filter

Good news)))

In the update as of March 10, new columns appear in the Geofences table - 'Consumed by ImpFCS/AbsFCS/InsFCS/FLS/math/rates' and
'Avg consumption by ImpFCS/AbsFCS/InsFCS/FLS/math/rates'.

So, you do not need to experiment with virtual sensors anymore. Now you can get information about fuel in your report on geofences just selecting the appropriate columns in the report template.

Very great!
Thank you very much, this is the simplest solution.
