Telemetry Data Journeys

Telemetry Data Journeys

How data is collected and becomes information in distributed asset environments

Why call it a data journey?

We have a fascination for telemetry data journeys because they help us to focus a system design on what it really important.

We use them to answer some fundamental questions:

  • will the system actually work?
  • will it deliver the information needed?
  • what steps are critical (and may need redundancy)?
  • will the information be delivered in time?
  • how do the changes fit into existing systems and processes?
  • how will it be scaled up?
  • is it future proof?

By understanding the whole process we can optimise individual components to deliver exactly the right functionality for the lowest total cost.

Future Proof Telemetry

And when talking about ‘future proof’ we have our eye on helping to deliver the right information to the right person at the right time, a concept illustrated opposite and termed as Predictive Context by the Techradar team at Cisco.

Telemetry data journeys deliver the right information to the right person at the right time

Here are some of our favourite data Journeys


Combined Sewer Overflow Data Journey

Like all data journeys it starts with a thorough understanding of requirements:

  • timely alerts of CSO status
  • accurate readings for compliance reporting
  • trending for modelling and investment analysis
  • best data for lowest cost to get the full picture of a catchment
  • reliability to avoid maintenance cost

Formula 1 Telemetry Data Journey

We look at the whole journey when designing a system.

Take a look at the Formula 1 data journey as a great example.

It starts with a thorough understanding of requirements:

  • intense pressure for real time analysis and response
  • huge data rates
  • available frequencies and acceptable latency
  • system reliability in hostile environments
  • regulatory constraints
