How to add a driver to GpsGate
Update: there's a newer guide available here
A driver is just a normal user in GpsGate. A driver does not require a license.
You can draw tracks, show real time information, use Event Rules, and generate reports the exact same way for drivers as for vehicles.
* Add drivers *
1. Go to VehicleTracker -> Admin -> Users. Click Add User.
2. Enter a username + Name + some kind of password
3. In the "Driver ID" field write the IButton or RFID id.
4. Click Next. Select the _Driver role (only)
5. Finish Wizard.
Repeat for all drivers you want to add. Since drivers does not have the _WebLogin and _DeviceLogin privilege they do not consume a license.
Tip: Create a Tag called "Drivers", add all drivers to this tag. Create a Tag called "Vehicles", add all drivers to this tag. This is very useful when creating Views, Reports and Event Rules.
* Device Mapper *
Map the IButton or RFID signal to IButton or RFID in the Device Mapper.
* Event Rule *
An event rule is required to setup the rules for when a driver is assigned to a vehicle.
1. Add a new Event Rule.
2. In Step 4. Add an "Driver ID Login" expression. And select the signal for IButton or RFID.
3. In Step 5. Add a Notifier for "Driver ID"
4. Add optionally a "Text Notifier" which displays "Driver name". You can add this to the Vehicle List in Map View and in this way see which driver is using which vehicle
* Use drivers in VehicleTracker *
Since a driver is a normal user, you can add drivers to Event Rules, draw tracks for drivers, show reports for drivers, display drivers real time position on map etc.
Tip: Make a view that displays vehicles only. Use Text Notifier to display driver name in vehicle list or as a text above the vehicle icon on map.
* Test with SimOne *
For testing purposes you can use SimOne which is a Windows program that emulates a "GpsGate TrackerOne" device. You can for example map Text1 to IButton.

* Driver login / log out rules
Assume Driver A logs into Vehicle One. Vehicle One will now have Driver A as a driver. There are four conditions to log out Driver A from vehicle One.
1. Some other driver e.g. Driver B logs into Vehicle One. This will logout Driver A and replace it with Driver B.
2. Driver A logs into another vehicle, this will logout Driver A from Vehicle One.
3. Midnight. This will log out Driver A from Vehicle One.
4. The end expression in the Event Rule is true. This will log out Driver A from Vehicle One.
