Telemetry systems are automated communication systems that have been designed to provide real-time information. The systems allow data to be collected remotely then transmitted electronically for easy monitoring. These systems are normally utilized for two main reasons:
- Emergency Response
Telemetry is crucial in remediation systems. What it does is to alert you incase the system experiences an unplanned shutdown or an upset. This will give the people in charge the chance to recognize the problem before hand and respond accordingly.
- Monitoring and adjusting
There are less sophisticated systems that will need telemetry. This system allows safely monitoring of system performance. The best part is that it does so without the expense or need to send a technician to the site. So customers or businesses that rely on the telemetry system will enjoy a cost saving experience as it gives the ability to regularly check different types of systems remotely.
How the system works
The system generally works through sensors at the remote source which measures electrical or physical data. This is then converted to electrical voltage combined with timing data. A data stream is formed then transmitted over a wireless or wired medium or a combination of both.
The stream is disaggregated at the remote receiver and the original data processed or displayed according to the specifications of the user.
Telemetry system will help you understand the setting options users select most. Users sometimes prefer certain display type, screen orientation, input modalities or different device configurations.
Crashes are bound to happen to any functional system. But you will need an upgrade if the crashes are more frequent when certain features or functions are selected. Telemetry system will help you understand the context surrounding a crash. You need to know if your customers are using the features as expected and whether they are engaging with your product or not.
