Usually the default settings are sufficient. In the iOS settings some basic parameters for the MARWIS app can be set:
Besides the measured values on the iOS device, the transmission of the data to a server for further processing is an essential function of the app.
The connection to SmartView is configured through the iOS settings / MARWIS settings and the following parameters:
|Server Connection Enabled||OFF||
Connection to server (e.g. ViewMondo server) enabled/disabled
The MARWIS app will use the (first) device serial number as an ID for the server (e.g. ViewMondo server). In order to connect to the (ViewMondo) server, the server must be running, and the Marwis interface must be configured as “active” for ViewMondo/Collector.
If required, port forwarding for the TCP port must be configured on your router and the TCP port must be allowed on your firewall.
|Server Name/IP Address||
The DNS name or IP address of the server (e.g. ViewMondo).
The server dns host name or ip address must be configured, the “server connection enabled” switch must be set to “ON”.
The TCP port for the server connection
If the (ViewMondo) server uses a different TCP port, the appropriate port number must be configured for the MARWIS app.
|Communication Timeout||30||Communication timeout in seconds for server connection|
The interval (in seconds) in which data is transferred to the server.
The data collected in the MARWIS app is transferred to the server within the configured “communication interval”, which determines how often data transmission occurs.
Interval in seconds in which the data is queued to be sent to the server
The “Transmission Interval” controls the interval in which measure values are collected to be forwarded to the server.
|Location Change Standby Timeout||10||
Standby timeout in minutes for location change. Data transfer to the server is suspended the location does not change for the configured time period.
“Location Change Standby Timeout”: If the GPS coordinates for the iPad/IPhone did not change for the specified amount of time (in minutes), data transmission to the server is suspended until the GPS coordinates change again (i.e. the position of the vehicle changes).
|Location Change Standby Timeout||5||The "Device Communication Standby Timeout" parameter defines the time period after which the data transmission is cancelled to the server due to a missing Bluetooth connection with the MARWIS within the set period (e.g. because the device was switched off or is out of range).|
The following parameters control the (Bluetooth) communication with the MARWIS device:
|Device Connection Enabled||On||
Connection to the MARWIS device enabled/disabled.
Mainly for testing purposes – the device connection should always be enabled.
|Communication Timeout||750||The communication timeout with the MARWIS device in milliseconds|
|Retries on error||3||The number of retries for the device communication before it is considered a timeout.|
|MARWIS UMB address||40961||The default UMB address for the MARWIS device – used when adding sensor channels to the configuration|
|Use Imperial Units||OFF||
Determines which UMB sensor channels are set up for polling when the “default sensor channels” for MARWIS are added to the sensor channel configuration
If you prefer to use imperial units (°F/mil) over metric units (°C/µm) you might want to set the “Use Imperial Units” to “ON” before continuing your setup.
The following parameters control how the data is displayed on the main “dashboard” screen of the app.
|Simple Road Condition Status (Green/Yellow/Red)||OFF||If switched to “On”, the road condition status shown on the map is simplified to green = ok (dry/damp/wet), Yellow = warning, Red = critical road condition status|
|Fade Out Interval||1200||The interval (in seconds) until the road condition trace on the road map slowly fades out.|
|Remove Interval||1200||The interval after which data is not shown on the road condition trail anymore|
|Display Overlay coordinates as GCJ-02 (for China)||Off||If “On”, the coordinates for displaying the location and track on the map within the app is calculated to “GCJ-02” coordinates (the coordinate system used in China).|
The following parameters configure the automatic firmware update for the MARWIS:
|Check for Firmware Updates||On||Automatically check for firmware updates|
|Firmware Update URL||firmware.lufft-MARWIS.com/MARWISFirmwareUpdateInfo.xml||The internet address where the firmware can be found and downloaded.|
If enabled, the MARWIS app will check for new device firmware every time the app is started, or once every 6 hours when a server connection is established. The user will be notified if a newer firmware version was found and downloaded from the server.
The device firmware is stored on the iPad/iPhone. Every time a connection to a MARWIS device is established, the device firmware version is checked against the stored firmware. If the stored firmware is newer, the user is prompted whether the device firmware should be updated or not.
