Data logger for a tracking device
A logger device was built by our customer in order to keep on the logging data from a tracking device. In different countries most of the time the issue which occurred was with mobile network connections and availability. Tracking devices generate data that can only be viewed by connecting devices on a serial terminal. Earlier we had no clue why some devices are not working properly. In order to identify an exact reason we found a way to view data generated by the devices. Logger device helped to exactly figure out the issues
After conducting extensive research on various technology stacks it was decided to use Hardware ARM Cortex M0 based Microcontroller, for Software Development C/C++ were used. We started working on CANvas tool for CAN bus data logger and Wireshark
We started working on the firmware of a data logger that can keep on logging data from tracking devices. To be easily placed and installed in a vehicle we have prepared a testing box which contains the tracking device and a data logger. After doing testing several times we were able to successfully run a logger device that can keep on logging data from the tracking device.
