Is it possible to use Puck.js as a fuel dispenser logger?
What I have in mind:
Is there a better way to log fuel dispenser usage?
Hi - it definitely sounds like something it could do.
For the Puck to be able to 'send' data to a phone, you'll need to make an app that ran on the phone (you don't do anything by default or everyone would be sending you stuff when you walked down the street).
I think a magnet on the fuel dispenser would be a good idea (and smaller & more simple than another Puck), and you can then put the Puck.js right next door to the filler so when inserted the magnet is only maybe 2 inches away.
It depends on the vehicle, but if there's a door on the filler, could you just detect the time that door is open? You could put a magnet on that door, and then it'd save you having to put a magnet on every fuel dispenser you use?
Thanks for the input!
I just wanted a verification.
Never did anything with Puck and good to know it can send that information.
Never thought of using a Puck and a magnet on the same vehicle.
Actually the number of fuel dispenser is less than vehicle.
By putting the magnet on the fuel dispenser handle, I think I save a bit of magnets.
Testing for the magnetometer reading would be interesting though.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
