To monitor the execution of rides online, select the Online section in the navigation panel. This page is designed to control the execution of ride on different routes in real time. Only active rides are shown here.

Linear Monitoring

In the main monitoring interface, each route is represented schematically as a line with points (route stops). The units which are currently on the route are also displayed on the line, at the stops or between them. This allows us to quickly assess the sufficiency of vehicles and the uniformity of their distribution along the route.

Units and stops are displayed without captions. The detailed information can be found in the tooltip that appears when you hover over them. In case several units overlap in one place, they are displayed by a group icon, the tooltip to which contains a list of these units.

If the unit moves with schedule violation, then the time of violation is shown below it. Plus means hurry, minus — the delay from the schedule. If the violation is beyond the permissible limits, the following colors are used to draw attention to it: red for delay, yellow for hurry. The degree of permissible deviation is set in user settings.

In the upper right corner of the block with the route you can find an icon indicating that there are problematic rides (). Rides are classified as problematic in the following situations:

  • it is time to start the ride, but the unit has not yet visited any stops (did not leave for the ride);
  • it is time to start the ride, but the unit has not yet been assigned (there is also a special notification) to control this situation.

Monitoring on the Map

Clicking on the heading of the block with the route allows to view it on the map, where the route is depicted with all stops and paths between them. In addition, in this mode, you can see the geographic location of units on the map.

When you monitor on the map, it displays all the units that are on active rides of this route and have positional data, regardless of whether these units are on the route at the moment or not. On the diagram, the number of units can sometimes be less, as it displays only the units that visited the route stops. Unit tooltips contain information about their name, active ride, as well as hurry and delay time. The time of visiting ride points that go beyond 24 hours has a pale purple highlight in the background. If a critical hurry or delay is detected, the unit icon is colored yellow or red, respectively.

Some Methods of Monitoring

Ride activation happens automatically 10 minutes before the time of visiting the first scheduled point of the route (can be changed in the depot settings). Activation means that the system begins to monitor (receive and analyze) messages from the unit assigned to the ride. Based on the data from the messages, monitoring of the ride is conducted.

The monitoring of the ride is carried out based on the following principles:

  • If all the points of the route are visited, the monitoring of the unit is stopped.
  • If the unit has visited the last point or a minute has passed since entering its zone, the monitoring of the unit stops and it disappears both from the scheme and from the map.
  • If a visit to the last point is not recorded, but at least one of the points was visited, it is assumed that the ride is performed with a strong delay from the schedule. In this case, the monitoring of the unit continues for 60 minutes and is counted from the scheduled time of the end of the ride.
  • If the last point is visited with a delay (up to 60 minutes) or a hurry (up to 10 minutes), but there were no-shows at other points, the unit is monitored for another 10 minutes from the moment of the actual visit to the last point. This is required to avoid data loss, as a possible black box unload is expected.
  • If the last point was visited with a hurry of more than 10 minutes, but there were no-shows at other points, the unit is monitored until the scheduled time of the end of the ride.
  • If not a single point of the route is visited, the unit is monitored until the scheduled time of the end of the ride.

A stop is considered to be visited when a message is received from its zone. The first message in the stop zone also indicates if the schedule is followed.

The system expects the stops to be visited in chronological order. Therefore, if the fifth stop was visited after the third one, then the fourth stop is considered to be skipped (unless later there is a message from a black box about visiting this point in a chronologically appropriate order).
