This is an ongoing glossary of terms used within Astara Connect.
A tracker is a device that is connected to a vehicle (or moving object) that will be sending at least the following information:
It is a group of trackers that it has been setup to gather them with a particular objective. For example, you can group trackers based on how are they used, or how you want to split them.
A trip is a set of tracker telemetric points that have a start and and end. The start and end endpoints are computed automatically by our system in real-time.
We save a trip when one of the following series of events take place: * Two consecutive points of the same tracker have a time difference of more than 5 minutes. * Two consecutive points of the same tracker have a time difference of more than 90 seconds and a distance difference less than 50 meters. * There is a trip in progress and there has not been any new points in the last 10 minutes.
Basically a latitude, a longitude and a timestamp for a given tracker.
Time dependent variables that it are not the positioning. Consumption, odometer lectures, fuel, altitude, trackers', heading, etc.
