Path allows users to create Routes based on AVL and GPS data registered by the Vehicle’s sensors during a drive. This automatically collected information describes a track that the program identifies as Path. Data is sent from the Vehicle to the server and it may eventually be used as the foundations for generating and editing Routes.
To search for recorded Paths, access the Search menu by clicking on the Search button. This is a magnifier icon located on the upper-left corner of the screen. When the Search pane displays:
The resulting Vehicles and associated Paths, distinguished by different colors, are listed below.
The Search results disclosed in this figure are based on Vehicles, with only one Path recorded.
If there are more than one, find the preferred Path in the matching list and click on Select Path next to it.
Notice that many different Paths can be displayed together, especially if the Search is based on Zones, because a number of Paths can intersect the Zone boundaries at some point (see following section).
For user convenience, the list of matching Paths can be filtered by partially entering the Vehicle’s ID in the Filter text box, and selecting what’s appropriate once the matching entries are disclosed.
Alternatively, the visibility of the Paths can be toggled by clicking on the arrows next to them, so the user can decide which ones are displayed on the Map. A Toggle All button is also available to hide all Paths at the same time.
In the figure, the Path recorded by the sensors installed in Bus 18 is selected. Once the Path is selected from the list, its telemetry data appears on the Map.
