Processing and visualizing vehicle data - AWS IoT FleetWise

Processing and visualizing vehicle data

AWS IoT FleetWise is in preview release and is subject to change. We recommend that you use the service only with test data, and not in production environments.

While AWS IoT FleetWise is in preview, you must download the preview AWS SDK and AWS CLI to use the API operations for this service. These API operations aren't available in the public AWS SDK or AWS CLI. For more information, see Preview AWS CLI and AWS SDKs.

The AWS IoT FleetWise Edge Agent software transfers selected vehicle data to Amazon Timestream. After your data arrives in Timestream, you can use Timestream to query your data and use other AWS services to visualize and share it.

Processing vehicle data

Timestream is a fully managed time series database that can store and analyze trillions of time series data points per day. Your data is stored in a customer managed Timestream table. You can use Timestream to query vehicle data so that you can gain insights about your vehicles. For more information, see What is Amazon Timestream?.

Visualizing vehicle data

After your vehicle data is transferred to Timestream, you can use the following AWS services to visualize, monitor, analyze, and share your data.

  • Visualize and monitor data in dashboards by using Grafana. You can visualize data from multiple AWS sources (such as Amazon CloudWatch and Timestream) and other data sources with a single Grafana dashboard.

  • Analyze and visualize data in dashboards by using Amazon QuickSight.
