Parse the Sensor Identifier

This article was written for version 2.0.9 of Core. Click here for the most recent version of the help center.

Once a sensor node has been defined in the SDF with the proper I/O configuration, the dynamic driver is used to parse the sensor identifier. This is then used to validate sensor data.

If a Dynamic driver interface requires a sensor identifier, then the ‘-g’ flag can be used. You can spawn a node from the command line by referencing the node ID found in the SDF Configurator. It’s strongly recommended to start the PolySync manager before parsing the sensor identifier.

$ polysync-core-manager
$ polysync-core-dynamic-driver -n 1 -g

The information is written to both the terminal and the PolySync log file. You can tail the log file to capture the output of the dynamic driver.

$ tail -f ~/.local/share/polysync/polysync.log

After you’ve obtained the sensor identifier, you can update the node configuration in the SDF Configurator.
