Status updates and colours based on geofence and other conditions

Topic: Status updates and colours based on geofence and other conditions

Dear all,

Is it somehow possible to have a real-time overview of the status of vehicles, where by:
- Depending on the geofence where a vehicle is in
- Depending on the setting of a switch/Sensor

The goal is to have:
- a green colour for example for a truck that is loaded, and just left a specific geofence.
- a blue colour when driving back empty, after leaving an other specific geofence.
- a different colour when unloading, based on a switch/sensor triggered in the truck.
- and different colour again based on idle time, and or engine off, in or out a specific geozone.

I know that notifications exist, but this does not give a real-time overview of the location of the vehicle.
Similar status should be visible in Reports also.

Re: Status updates and colours based on geofence and other conditions

we solve this by creating unit groups with different pictures of the unit group (vehicle icon must be default, otherwise that doesnt work).
than we use notifications to sort vehicles into the different unit groups.
Voila, icon changes depending of the unit group it belongs to.

That sounds wonderful & reasonably straightforward.
I will try to test this out during the next week, and will get back to this forum if in need of more input.
Thanks for now.

Hi robert.jongkees,

Have you tried it? And how the result?

I also looking for right formulas/trigger to some notifications, which is automatically change unit groups for each condition.


By the way, my company use wialon local to track our trucks. I'm work in Jakarta, do you work in Jakarta also?
May be we could share experience about use wialon.
