PIT Data Path Tracer interprets the PIT tag data from a complex test environment and infers where each test subject was positioned at any point in time. All results are finally gathered to an Excel table.
Consider a test environment with separate areas of interest. The areas are connected by corridors with series of antennas installed to them. Path Tracer takes this data and infers the probabilities of test subjects residing in each area at any point in time.
Path Tracer automatically computes location information doing which could at best take a long while and at worst be nigh impossible if done manually. The test environment model needed by Path Tracer can be easily created with PIT Data Designer. Our customers have found Path Tracer invaluable especially in solving cases where data seemingly indicates test subjects to "teleport" frequently around the environment.
Rundown of features
All your data in Excel
Path Tracer creates richly formatted Excel tables to help you make the most out of its results.
Limitations of the antenna systems sometimes cause PIT tags to go unnoticed even when they pass an antenna. PIT Data Path Tracer understands this and makes probabilistic estimates of what actual events may have generated the data which might at times seem to defy laws of nature.
Understands your test environment
PIT Data Designer is there to help you model your own test environments, no matter how complex they might be. Path Tracer will take these models and map you PIT tag data against your test environment.
Pick distinct test periods from long-term arrangements
Path Tracer works out of the box with all your data but if you want, you can restrict its analysis to shorter intervals within the dataset.
Custom confidence levels
You can make Path Tracer to trust its own conclusions more or less. The resulting Excel table will have additional warnings for the time periods when Path Tracer could not infer the test subject's location reliably enough.
