Unbinding for Drivers Like Passengers

Topic: Unbinding for Drivers Like Passengers

Hello,
Problem:
A client wants to control the working hours of drivers passing RFID cards in the beggining and in the end of their work.

Solution:
The best way of doing this with the trackers we are using was if there was an option inside the binding sensors for working like passengers binding sensor: When the platform receives the same parameter for the second time, it automatically unbind the driver.

Unbinding for Drivers Like Passengers

Re: Unbinding for Drivers Like Passengers

Hello,
We found a way of this method of unbinding work:

Create a group for units with drivers;
Create a group for units without drivers.

Create a notification in binding mode in a way that when a new driver is assigned, the unit goes to the group with drivers;
Create a notification in parameter mode that when the parameter with the ID appears, the driver is removed from the unit and the unit goes to the group without drivers.

Despite of this, I still think that this option should be implemented inside of the sensor.

Re: Unbinding for Drivers Like Passengers

Hi Fernando Brochetto,

that is great that you have found a workaround. But have you seen automatic binding solution which is described here: https://docs.wialon.com/en/hosting/user … ic_binding?

I think some pieces of information could be useful for you. For example, the option Validate unbinding can be useful. If the option is activated, a driver bound to a unit automatically can be unbound from this unit only if the empty value comes from the same parameter that was used to bind the driver.
Otherwise, driver reset coming from any parameter will lead to the reset of all drivers bound to this unit.

A driver can be unbound from the unit upon receiving the parameter with the unbinding code configured in the properties of the Driver binding sensor, and also upon the activation of the corresponding notification (for example, upon switching off the engine). When a driver with enabled Exclusive checkbox is assigned to a unit, all others are automatically unassigned. This function is relevant for drivers created within the same resource.


Do you find this information useful for you?

Unbinding for Drivers Like Passengers

Re: Unbinding for Drivers Like Passengers

Hello mapa,
Yes, I did know about these features, but the problem is that firstly, the tracker we use sends only the parameter with the code when the cards are passed through the reader and also the drivers do more than one trip in a day, so they turn off the ignition very often. As they need to get the interval between when the driver started and finished, we need the bindings to work in the way I've described. The use of notifications has helped us in the workaround I've shown.
Thank you!

Re: Unbinding for Drivers Like Passengers

how do you show the driver that he correctly bind or undbind? how you handle more than one driver? how you handle pauses?

We found, that the scheme of binding and unbinding is too simple for more complex working schemes.

Our competitors use some kind of display, you swipe your ID, it shows the status and you can change it. But i personally did not find any good hardware solution for it...

Hello wwbusch aka Buwo
Do you mean, more than one driver at the same time? Today we don't have any of this cases.
The pauses our currently clients are using parkings to control, but we are thinking on trying new ways to control them.
Displays is very common here in Brazil, we are going to start a new case with them next month and see how can we use them inside Wialon.

Yes, I totally agree.

wwbusch aka Buwo, please share a complex scheme you may faced as an example to discuss more about and ask GT to find a way for that.
