Release-1.4.0

Release 1.4.0 brings Custom Alignment and on demand reporting functionality to the Kurloo Nest.

Custom Alignment

Kurloo’s new custom alignment functionality allows you to view your measurements aligned to the
structure or landform you are measuring, rather than on compass orientations.
By specifying a rotation angle on your nodes, the measurement axes change from the standard dE, dN, and DH to
axes labelled dX, dY, and dH by rotating the dE and dN axes clockwise by the rotation angle.
dH is unchanged in the rotation, only the horizontal axes are affected.

Custom alignment functionality is enabled throughout the Kurloo Nest, allowing you to create alerts and analyses on rotated measurements.

On Demand Reports

If you have an auto report setup for your project, you can now generate the report on an ad-hoc basis using the new “Report on demand” button on the Reports page.

Release-1.3.0

Release 1.3.0 brings substantial new functionality to the Kurloo Nest, with the introduction of GeoTIFF map overlays. hourly GNSS processing

GeoTIFF Overlay

The Kurloo Nest uses Google Maps satellite view as the default map background to help you visualise your project.
There are limitations around the usefulness of Google’s imagery since it is relatively low resolution, is infrequently updated, and it is not orthorectified.
For project sites that have changed significantly since the latest satellite image was loaded it can mean the background map image does not adequately represent the site.

To overcome that limitation, Kurloo have developed functionality where a custom GeoTIFF image can be used to visualise the site.
These images are typically generated by drone flights of the site or by services supplying satellite imagery.
If you have a GeoTIFF of your site that you would like to use, or you would like advice on how to create a suitable GEOTIFF, please contact Kurloo Support for assistance.

Hourly GNSS Processing

The Kurloo Nest version 1.2.0 and earlier processed data at 11:00am AEST regardless of when the data was collected.
Starting from version 1.3.0, the Kurloo Nest will process the GNSS data received from your devices within 1 hour of reception.
This change means that your data will be made available to you shortly after it has been collected.

Bulk Node Data Export

Kurloo Nest v.1.3.0 expands on the existing data export functionality by allowing you to download all of your project data at once.
The bulk export can be filtered by date and nodes, and the data source can be chosen from Moving Average, Edited Raw Data and Raw data sources.

Customisable Table Columns

You are now able to select which columns to show in numerous tables shown throughout the Kurloo Nest.
On the node list, for example, you can show various device statuses in the table. This lets you easily see the battery status of all of your nodes,
and lets you sort the list to see which nodes have low levels of charge at a glance.
Gif of alerts here
You will find numerous tables around the Kurloo Nest can now be customised in the same way so that you can see your data more efficiently.

Release-1.2.0

Release 1.2.0 brings Time-Based Alerting functionality, as well as other minor improvements and bug fixes.

Time-based Alerting

Time-based alerting allows you to be alerted on displacement of your nodes over a moving window
of time.
Previously, alerts were only able to be created with a fixed reference date. This update now allows
alerts to be created that look at displacement over a period of time e.g., the last 1 day, 2 weeks, 3 months etc.
Gif of alerts here

Along with time-based alerting, further functionality has been added to alerts to allow you to keep notified
of events in your project. Multiple rules can now be added to each notification, combined with AND or OR rules
to allow more complex notification conditions to be specified.

Gif of conditions
Additionally, it can now be specified if alerts are generated on edited raw data, or on the moving average data source.
This allows you to do your alerting on the data source that you view your project in.

Release 1.1.0

Welcome to the January 2023 release of Kurloo. There are many incredible new features and updates in this version that we hope you’ll like, some of the key highlights include:

  1. Distance to Ground
  2. Daily device status
  3. Advanced Node and Analysis
  4. Map optimisation
  5. Better email notification
  6. Styles and User experience

Distance to Ground

Implement Distance to Ground sensor

The Distance to Ground helps to monitor vertical displacement in centimeters level. You can switch the data representation using the classic chart control bar. The Distance to Ground can be compared by rainfall data. As the way you are already familiar, the data can be modified by adding offsets and removals if you encountered a case where the pole is extended or a device replacement. The Distance to Ground data can even be exported along with your other displacement readings for further investigation.

In the Distance to Ground tab, you can observe:

  1. Device registered level (dRL): The altitude captured by the geosystem in each Kurloo device. This indicates the height of the device above sea level by default.
  2. Ground registered level (gRL): The “Device registered level” minus “Distance to Ground” that was captured by our built-in ultra-sonic sensor in each Kurloo device. This value indicates the ground level above the sea level.
  3. Plate registered level (pRL): The Device registered level minus pole height provided by users. This value represents the base plate level above the sea level.
  4. Soil height (sH): The Ground registered level minus plate registered level. This value tells the height of the covered soil above the plate.

To apply offset and removal, you can check from the Node detail > Expand the “Data removals” or “Offset adjustments” section > Click the “Edit” button. For offset adjustment, you can find the new “Pole length” available when adding a new offset.

Apply offsets and removals

Note1: You need to provide the initial pole height to enable this function. To set up, please click Node details on the right side of the information block > click Edit > Initial pole height. The unit is in meters

Note2: The data removals will apply to both “displacement readings” and “Distance to Ground readings”.

Daily device status

Daily device status

Understanding and tracking your device’s health status is extremely useful and beneficial. Some peculiar readings can be caused by severe weather or other potential events on sites. Except for precaution purposes, the device status can be a valuable resource to gain insights as well. Therefore, Kuloo provides a dashboard that summarises each device’s status each day. We provide an intuitive way to help you evaluate the ideal status of the device as well as its current state. The daily device status allows users to trace back the historical data in a line chart to understand the trends and the environmental changes on your site.

You can now open the daily device status dashboard by clicking the “Daily status average” tab on the Node detail page. To view the historical data, simply click the “Trend” button on the top right corner of each status card.

Note: the daily device status is a summary of each particular day, this does not represent the device status in real-time.

Advanced Node and Analysis

Number of days enabled

Number of days enabled

We are now providing a whole new way to interpret your favorite monitoring data. You can change the timeline measurement in X-axis from date to “Number of days enabled”. This function is applied to both Node and Analysis and is extremely helpful to compare the readings with how many days each Node is installed. To change the timeline measurement, please click the configuration button (gear icon) > select a preferred X-axis measurement unit.

Exporting data

The export function now includes the readings of the reference station to the base station when exporting a default format.

Powerful chart and table

Number of days enabled

Based on our constant research on the User experience, the Chart is one of the most commonly used functions in Kurloo Nest. The chart now brings a new feature, zooming, which can greatly save you time. From this Release, you can zoom in/out on the Node detail chart as well as the Analysis detail chart by scrolling the mouse over it. This new feature is applied on both the date and Number of day-enabled views. By doing so, the date range will be updated accordingly. You can reset the chart to its default setting by hitting the reset button.

Map optimisation

Map optimisation

Our clients love the directional vector that indicates the 2D displacement direction in map view. Thus, we have decided to implement this extraordinary feature in other commonly used maps including the Dashboard page and Node detail page. Other cool updates such as:

  1. Flexibility: There is a new toggleable option to display the directional vector on the map widget of the Dashboard view.
  2. Readability: We have also optimised the directional vector color to keep it clear and readable on the satellite view.
  3. User-friendly: Instead of double-clicking, the map now can display the Node name label just by the hovering mouse over the selected Node.
  4. Powerful selector: The map has been improved to auto-focus on your toggled Node groups.

Better email notification

We constantly improve user experience, and this time we take this approach even further to optimise the information in our email notifications. This includes:

  1. Node name: The name of each Node in the email is now displayed in the customised names, we encourage every user to set up their preferred and descriptive Node name.
  2. Ongoing triggers: The system now can track the ongoing triggered Nodes and will push notifications based on the emerging outbreaks. This means you will be notified through email only if any ongoing breaches are triggered.

Styles and User experience

We are dedicated to improving the user experience of our platform, Kurloo Nest. This means you may find some styling upgrades that help you to focus on your task, easily search for items, or switch between functions.
