TinMan RealTime is an immensely versatile and powerful application used for real-time monitor, control and/or automation of local or remote system(s) with
any number of sensors. These systems can either be passive (only send sensor data and not respond to commands), or active (where they send sensor data and
respond mechanically to commands).
and charts can be assigned to intuitively visualize live sensor values and
administer system commands. Add buttons and controls to send
custom commands to systems. Multiple passive and active systems, local or remote, can be continuously and simultaneously monitored and controlled in real-time. Use RealTime with TinMan AI Builder for "Intelligent LIVE Control"
to process and automate control of intelligent external systems
– all in real-time.
Version 2.1 of TinMan RealTime is here
(along with a $99 personal edition). In addition to
real-time UDP data IO, RealTime now supports single click
COM/Serial port integration and direct sensor / command
interface to programmable logic controllers - in particular the
Arduino platform and Raspberry Pi platforms and derivatives (click on center image
below for video).

A Closer Look at TinMan RealTime
What Does it Do?
(3 USE Models)
Receives, validates, parses and presents
live sensor data. RealTime provides a palette of gauges,
charts, viewers and controls for visualization of data
streaming from external systems through a serial port
(COM), a sensor log file (CSV) or from the internet
(UDP), along with
providing a customizable outgoing command message
interface for sending commands directly to external
systems via UDP or COM. (3) RealTime also allows a third use model: the automatic and seamless real-time integration with
TinMan Systems AI Builder
for intelligent automation and control of external systems. Allows unlimited number of data sources, providing each with
an unlimited number of sensor data “templates”
to efficiently access and visualize sensor data elements.
Instantly Interface with Smart Systems
With RealTime, you can connect to any smart system that
sends and receives data. Control systems manually
through custom commands, buttons and levers, and receive
all sensor data for parsing, visualization, analysis and
recording directly to data log files.

Why RealTime is Useful
To acquire and visualize remote sensor data. To build, refine or better understand information coming from remote sensors.
To manually or autonomously control local or remote systems To quickly and efficiently access, validate,
understand, improve, create and refine sensor data coming from local or remote systems.

How RealTime is Used
As a windows software application with a highly intuitive and efficient interface and multi-threaded
bi-directional based messaging architecture, to connect to the user’s external systems via the Internet.
Simply configure COM, UDP or CSV data sources and command targets, overcoming design headaches and software
communication / compatibility issues with data communication and synchronicity to immediately be up and
running with real-time system monitor and control with state of the art visual tools.
Users will gain value from TinMan RealTime with software simulation and personal robotics projects at home,
in engineering educational settings, in research labs, in robotics and AI research institutions,
in unmanned systems design and testing and in the factory R&D environment.
Add life-like gauges and customize their appearance to nearly 4000+ combinations. Multiple sources, multiple gauges and saved projects gives each interface
and entirely custom look. All gauges function live and with perfect visual transition in the multi-threaded environment which optimizes graphics rendering - even on laptops with low GPU resource.
Advanced Live data analysis - Histograms
Add histograms to view live incoming data and
customize all parameters.
Arduino Data and Commands with TinMan RealTime V2 -
Video shows integration of system messages from Arduino along with sensor data and command messages. Testing an IMU sensor stick with 9 degrees of freedom for use in auto-leveling a primitive quadcopter prototype - with TinMan RealTime as Sensor and Command interface.
Replay CSV Data Files as Live Sensors
Set any recorded sensor data log as the data source to be streamed live into TinMan RealTime as if it were live data. Re-experience and further analyze situational measurements and data recordings for system optimization.
Use the CuStom Gauge Designer to Create Personalized Gauges
NEW! V2.1.5 Provides the new Custom Gauge component - which allows you to create virtually any size and any format gauge possible. You can create transparent gauges, gauges with imported bitmap faces, or a fully customized face of your own. Add color and ranging with the new Range Arcs, and add and move text around to enhance scale information. Export face bitmaps for use in presentations or other applications. Or export the bitmap face to use as backdrop to other gauges. Drag to any size, copy and paste with single clicks. Scaling, rotation, arc length, fonts and over 110 elements fully customizable to make your live sensor data much more meaningful.
