Telemetry

From Bendyroad

Telemetry is the process of transmitting data from a device to a remote system for monitoring and analysis. This is useful for monitoring, saving sensor values in a database, make graphs, and many more applications.

Telemetry routing

Here you specify which transport to use for the telemetry.

  • Serial
  • MQTT

(if available on your target platform, see: Category:Implementation notes)

Telemetry var mapping

This is the folder containing the "Reporting field" items. These specify which variable to send.

Reporting field

To add a value to the data stream, enter the name of the variable (this can be a sensor that you have defined in the Hardware folder) and the tag that you want to assign to it.

The tag is a numeric value, you choose, to give an unique id to the value in the case when the transport mechanism is not able to send texts.
