Passengers can be assigned to the unit only automatically. The automatic identification method requires appropriate equipment. To work with passenger traffic, RFID tags are widely used. When getting on or getting off the vehicle, the passenger applies an RFID tag to a special reader.
To assign or separate a passenger, the Create, edit, and delete passengers access right to the resource is required.
For automatic assignment and separation of passengers, special adjustments in the system are required:
- Create the sensor of the Passenger sensor type in the properties of each unit to which the trailer is supposed to be assigned automatically. You can use the avl_driver parameter for this sensor or any other parameter depending on your equipment and its configuration.
- Create an automatic assignment list. To do so, click on the Automatic assignment icon () and follow the steps described below.
After clicking on the Automatic assignment icon, a list of available resources opens. Verify that you have access rights to the user that is the creator of the resource, otherwise, a warning will be displayed.
Here you choose a resource whose passengers will be used in automatic assignment (with the units selected in the next dialog box). In order to understand what passengers belong to a particular resource, go back to the Passengers panel and apply a filter by resource (a drop-down list to the right of the Create button).
After choosing a resource, click Next. If only one resource is available, then it will be selected automatically.
The next dialog box contains a list of units to which passengers can be assigned automatically. Select the required units.
Thus, a passenger will be automatically assigned to a unit with the help of an RFID tag in case this unit has a special sensor configured in its properties and this unit is indicated in the automatic assignment list of the resource to which this passenger belongs.

To view the history of assignments and separations of the passenger, press the button to the right of its name. In the window that opens, specify the interval for which you want to see the history and click Show.
