Type 1 license: Sensor Reputation System

  • Updated



Each sensor is awarded a 100-point setup bonus the first time it is connected to the PlanetWatch network.

The performance of each sensor in the network is assessed daily and a score is assigned as follows:

  • if the sensor has delivered more than 50% of the expected daily data streams, it is deemed qualifying and it earns one point
  • if the sensor has failed to deliver more than 50% of the expected daily data streams, it is not qualifying and loses one point

For Type 1 sensors, additional rules apply:

  • in each pixel, the Type 1 sensor which gets installed first and streams data for at least 30 qualifying days from that pixel is entitled to a 100-point Pioneer bonus. These bonuses can only be earned once in a sensor’s lifetime, even if the sensor changes location
  • for a given sensor, a Local Reputation Score applies in each pixel. If a sensor is moved to a new location in another pixel, its Local Reputation Score in this new location starts at 0. Over time, it will earn reputation points in the new pixel or lose them.
