Wialon provides an opportunity to track a unit that moves along a route and is supposed to visit definite check points in a predefined or arbitrary order, at a definite time or without any strict schedule.
To use the Routes module, it is important to understand the meaning of the terms route, schedule, round and the difference between them.
A route is a set of check points each of which has a certain position on the map. The number of check points in a route is unlimited. See Creating a route for more information.
A schedule is a table which contains information about the time of passing through check points. One route can have many schedules attached to it. See the Schedule section for more information.
A round is a combination of a route, its schedule and a unit assigned to them. See the Rounds section for more information.
To configure a route, perform the following steps.
- Create the route itself, that is, mark check points on the map.
- Create one or more schedules for this route.
- Assign units to the schedules manually or enable automatic creation of rounds.
When everything is configured properly, you can monitor the unit performance on the route in different ways:
- following it on a special online timeline;
- getting notifications about the events related to the route;
- executing reports on the results of passing through the route.
The measurement system is specified in the user settings.
You can resize the window sectors. To do so, click on the border between them with the left mouse button and, while holding it, move the border to the right/left or up/down. However, if less than 10% of the map is left while expanding the lower sector, the map automatically collapses. To expand it, click on the line under the top panel.
