Introduction Visual Components Sensor Agent Node

SAN communicates directly with Orion CB using REST API requests. IR, voltage and switch sensors mimic behavior of real sensors. SAN supportsc reating entities when simulation is started and updating entities during simulation. OCB has only one entity per SAN.

SAN allows to gather data from sensors through component interface and translates component information to JSON format and updates the entity in OCB. It also creates, updates and deletes entities automatically.

Currently, updates entity immediately after sensor data is received later it can be possible to send gather more data and send it periodically.

SAN actuator can track one sensor measurement at a time. The correct sensor and measurement are recognized by the sensor id and the measurement type.
