If you are using Genetec Patroller™ with the AutoVu™ navigation hardware, you need to configure the related settings in Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool. These settings allow you to calibrate and monitor the positioning hardware, and to configure the GNSS antenna.

Before you begin

Procedure

  1. Open Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool.
  2. Go to Navigation > Equipment.
  3. From the Equipment type list, select AutoVu™ Navigation.
  4. Turn Use positioning to ON, then configure the following:
    Device
    The navigation hardware auto discovery starts automatically when a Sharp camera is accessible. Click the discovery button to restart the auto discovery if necessary. When a navigation device is discovered, the Layout..., Calibrate... and Monitor... buttons and the Calibration state field appear.
    Layout
    This button allows you to enter the GNSS antenna and port positions. This operation is necessary to calibrate the navigation hardware. For details, see Configuring the AutoVu navigation equipment layout.
    Calibrate
    This button allows you to perform step-by-step odometry and GNSS calibration. For details, see Calibrating Patroller Navigation.
    Monitor
    Click this button to get information about navigation position, malfunctions, and vehicle status.
  5. If you want to read plates when the patrol vehicle is stopped, turn Read when car is stopped to ON.
  6. If you want to read plates when the patrol vehicle moves in reverse, turn Read when moving backwards to ON.
    NOTE: When doing parking enforcement, patrol vehicles may stop and reverse frequently.
