Two new fields, latitude and longitude, are now part of devices’ inner properties and can be used to locate a device. Your current devices without those coordinates won’t be displayed in control panel’s map, but you only need to fill those fields to see them appear automatically.
As usual, there is a tutorial to start using it easy. You will learn:
- How to automatically update a device’s location from stream’s data.
- How to know if a device is inside a specific area
Here it is: https://www.carriots.com/tutorials/geolocation
There are new SDK functions added to determine if a device is in an area, the “inside” function. Documentation can be found here: https://www.carriots.com/documentation/sdk/core_libraries#device
And also remember that new fields can be used in the REST API queries and take the full advantage of its potential. Just two examples:
Is my device inside this 100 meters range?
How many devices are in this 100 meters range?
