June release: a more advanced device simulator
The device simulator now supports variables for more advanced demos and testing. Plus we've made installing the first device available directly in the application - no need to go to Site Admin to get started.
Among this month’s improvements to the new device simulator, the most important addition is support for variables. You can simulate things like an SOS signal from the driver in addition to simulating a vehicle traveling a route. What else can you simulate? See the list below and the partial screenshot.
- • SOS
- • harsh driving: braking, turning, and acceleration
- • temperature
- • speed
- • fuel level
- • Need to use other inputs? You can also add more variables to fit your device simulator use cases.
Let us know how you use the new simulator for testing, demos, and training at your company!
Getting started: adding your first device
When you create a new application in GpsGate, the first thing you often do is add a device. You can now add a device (including installing the plugin!) directly in the Vehicle Tracker - no need to leave the application.
When you first log in to a new application with no devices, a popup window will help you either use a simulated device or get a tracking device or smartphone connected. This new process helps partners set up new clients and give demos more effectively, plus new customers can get online and start testing fast.
