Route Control and Optimization
The tracking system provides an opportunity to track a unit being on a route and supposed to visit definite checkpoints in predefined or arbitrary order, at a definite time or without any strict schedule.
To understand how routes work, three notions are important: route, schedule, and round.
a set of checkpoints, each characterized by its location on the map. The number of checkpoints in a route is unlimited.
a timetable which holds time of visit for each point. One route can have many schedules attached to it.
a route, its schedule as well as the assigned unit put together.
So, to configure a route, perform the following steps:
- Create a route itself, i.e., mark checkpoint on the map.
- Create one or more schedules for this route.
- Assign rounds manually or adjust automatic creation of rounds.
When everything is configured properly, you can analyze unit performance on the route by various means:
- In a specially designed online timeline.
- In reports.
- Get notifications about round progress.
