We currently have data logging implemented in one of our products. Currently, users download logs from vehicles using Android BlueTooth and this gets automatically uploaded from the Android to our web portal. The customer has a Desktop analysis software we supply them that retrieves logs from our web portal to their desktop.
What we want to do is change the upload to be near real time. ie. Each time a record is created, it is sent direct via GPRS to web portal. If internet not available then we need to be able to store and forward when it becomes available.
The data will come into the Electron via RS485 (converted to 3.3V TTL). The only other function we need is a real time clock to be able to time/date stamp each record at the vehicle.
Is the Electron suitable to provide the functions we require and can be purchase the Hardware with SIM account but have data go to our existing portal in our packet format?
