Supported devices

A device agnostic platform giving freedom of choice for devices and sensors that meet your needs.

Devices and sensors

PlatformConnect supports a wide range of devices and sensors. Vendor and device agnostic, Platform Connect is dedicated to receiving, processing and storing of large amounts of data for later use and analysis. As most devices have specific communication and device management needs, GPSengine collaborates with each manufacturer to add protocol and communication support to their range of devices and sensors. For each manufacturer a dedicated receiver is developed by GPSengine to efficiently communicate with and process large quantity of messages and handle event processing.

Device management

Some devices can be fully managed via PlatformConnect, through a feature called provisioning. If a device model has provisioning support, this allows full device management to be performed and automatically updated over the air. A provisioning profile for a specific device configures the device to work as expected for real world use.

Normalisation of data

PlatformConnect supports a larger number of devices and sensors that provide information in different formats. Part of the Platform Connect feature set is the normalisation of this data. All data queries for devices are returned in this pre-formatted data to make interpretation and use of this data quick and meaningful.

List of supported devices can be found here.
