Here you can specify the time zone to which the depot belongs, the daylight saving time period, if applicable, and the ride activation time.
Here you can also enable or disable the Online 2.0 mode. When you create and activate new depots, the Online 2.0 mode is enabled for them automatically.
Three settings are available.
|Time zone||The selection of the time zone.|
|Daylight saving time||The activation of the daylight saving time. If necessary, select one of the available options: for Europe or North America.|
|Online 2.0||The activation of the Online 2.0 mode.|
Besides the settings, two types of ride activation are available.
|According to schedule|
The selection of the number of minutes (10 or 5) the rides should be activated before they begin on schedule regardless of whether they have assigned units or not. The default value is 10.
|When visiting a stop|
This activation type is available only in the Online 2.0 mode and is required for the routes with the automatic assignment of units enabled. In the field, you should indicate the number of minutes (from 1 to 60) the system should start taking into account messages from all the units associated with the route before any of them visits the first stop on schedule. The default value is 10.
Online 2.0 is the operation mode of NimBus with a new tracking module which is responsible for:
- receiving and processing messages from units;
- sending messages about rides to the locator.
In addition to the standard features of NimBus, the new functions in Online 2.0 allow you:
- to use an additional ride activation type;
- to configure the automatic assignment of units to rides;
- to create circular routes.
The algorithm of the Online 2.0 tracking module also allows executing the rides of routes with intersections correctly.
