Quick Start #

Welcome to the administrative guide to using your Pegasus Gateway effectively. 

 

Terminology: 

  • API – used by developers to develop their own applications using data from your Gateway. More info
  • Jobs – whenever a report is generated it creates a job, which is a script that handles the data you request from the report in our servers
  • Tasks – also known as scheduled reports, they are set on a custom schedule and can execute jobs automatically
  • Accessories – the system can handle lots of sensors and accessories depending on your application, for example:
    • iButton – unique id that’s printed on a dime sized chip, used to identify drivers.
    • RFID – used for remote identification of things and people
    • Bluetooth Tag – multi sensor that can measure temperature / humidity / light and more.
    • ECU or ECU Monitor – Engine Control Unit – this is the accessory that connects to your vehicle’s OBDII port or truck’s J1939/J1708 port in order to read the engine data
    • Temperature or Analog Interface – this sensor measures temperature with 3 probes, or analog readings
    • Photocam – photo capturing camera
    • Serial Expander – used to connect multiple cameras
    • Input / Output Expander – used to extend the amount of input sensors and outputs per device
    • Satcom – communicates with 
    • Technoton™ – used to connect to a fuel tank for level measurement
    • Mobileye™ – smart collision avoidance system that can monitor your driver’s behavior in realtime

Guide for administrators to personalize and create their own labels for managed configurations on Pegasus Gateway.

Forwarders #

DCT can install forwarders on your site, following their creation you can edit and update them in the following way.

Note, only forwarders with protocol: FWD:json_fwd can be edited.

 

Time Zone

By default the timestamp the data is sent with is UTC.  The keys this affects is

event time: 2017-11-05T16:04:31+00:00
system_time: 2018-06-04T23:34:49.751085+00:00

If you update it to America/Los_Angeles (UTC-7) for example, the updated timestamps will be sent with:
event time: 2017-11-05T09:04:31-07:00
system_time: 2018-06-04T16:34:49.751085-07:00

 

Time format

example %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S

gives you YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss, example: 2018-12-25 23:59:59

Include Entity information

 Here’s an example of the json that’s sent once this key is included.

{
  ...
  "vinfo": {
    "name": "Vehicle name",
    "tank_volume": 100,
    "year": "2000",
    "color": "red",
    "make": "Kenworth",
    "time": 1476907805.7595339,
    "vin": "3WKAD40X1EF853689",
    "license_plate": "531EB5",
    "vehicle": 426,
    "model": "T660",
    "tank_unit": "gallon",
    "id": 411,
    "description": "this is a custom description for this vehicle"
  },
  "lon": -101.95036,
  "lat": 21.25357,
  "device_id": 356612021371077
  ...
}

Extra Headers

You can choose to add additional headers on the forwarder as well:

 

General configuration

The general configuration is comprised of a JSON object which has any of the following keys defined:

  • legacy, boolean, when true it sends the lat/lon as integers values
  • protocol, string, when set to “rpc”, it wraps the json array of events in the following envelope  {"params":[1,[...]],"method":"pushevents","id":1}
  • keys_include, array, use it to include keys that are not defined in the keys output
  • keys_exclude, array, use it to exclude any keys from the forwarder
  • codes_map, json, object with key-value pairs, the keys should be the original event_code, the value represents the value to which it will be switched
  • filter_in, array, only forwards events from these event codes
  • filter_out, array, removes any unwanted event codes from forwarding data
  • stop_send, boolean, when true it pauses the forwarder
  • stop_queue, boolean, when true it stops queuing events, therefore they are discarded
  • labels_in, array, only allows certain labels to forward data
  • labels_out, array, exclude the following labels from forwarding data

 

Example:

{
	"keys_include": ["tec_fn", "btt_wreason"],
	"codes_map": {"0": 55, "20": 40},
	"filter_in": [10,12,14],
	"labels_in": ["ignon","ignoff"]
}

Triggers & Automation #

FAQ

  • I’m having issues viewing my popups and receiving alerts
  • Try opening the portal in an incognito window and see if that fixes the issue, if it’s the case then you have a plugin or an extension that’s interfering with the gateway
