1.4.0 | Drive-Thru Director

Implementation Date: April 20, 2015

Along with having each enhancement or addressed issue listed individually, there are significant changes in the DTD's configuration and behavior that are explained in detail at the beginning of these release notes.

Updated Rules and Behaviors for Drive Thru Transactions

With this release, there have been multiple criteria added that influence how drive thru senses are tracked and validated. These criteria include: roll-up delays, roll-off delays, and a minimum total time.

  • Roll-up Delays - A roll-up delay is the minimum amount of time that a sensor must be triggered before counting as a valid sense. If a vehicle does not trigger a sense for the length of time configured here, then that vehicle will not register as a valid drive thru event, and its time will not appear on reports.

  • Roll-off Delays - Roll-off delays are designed to aid in sensor continuity. If a sense stops and resumes, or "flickers" for less than the amount of time configured in this setting, then the original sense will continue to count up as a single sense. The default length of a roll-off delay is one second. So if a sense begins, then stops for less than a second, then resumes, it will still count as a single sense, not two individual senses.

  • Minimum Total Time - Drive thru events must have a default minimum total time of 15 seconds in order to count as a valid event. If an event does not have a total time of 15 seconds, it will not appear on your reports.

Overlong Senses

If a loop sense endures past the default time of 15 minutes, this may indicate a malfunctioning loop sensor. Traditionally, this would display a "Sensor Problem" message.

This message will now display information that can help the user diagnose and clear their sensor status.

Developed a Drive Thru Director API

Developed a JSON-RPC API to interface with your DTD to obtain timing information directly from the unit.

New Features

DTD-139

Vehicle senses will not be valid unless they've triggered the sense for a default time of at least 4 seconds. All recorded times will still include these initial 4 seconds.

DTD-223

Enhanced logging and failsafes to prevent incorrect configuration settings from causing the DTD to not accept keystrokes.

DTD-272

Allowed for enhanced timing data to post to up to the Burger BUS (BBUS).

DTD-292

Provided SICOM Support the ability to safely adjust a DTD controller's timezone setting via the command line.

DTD-298

Provided SICOM Support the ability to fully restore a DTD controller's software if an upgrade process did not complete.

DTD-354

Added the ability to configure a "max loop open time" for each individual sensor. Once a loop sense exceeds that time, the DTD will display a "Sensor problem" message.

DTD-380

Updated the phrasing of the alert that occurs when the DTD cannot read senses from the GPIO Board.

DTD-392

Updated formatting of the emails sent from the DTD when using the "Check In" feature during installation.

DTD-404

Added a "minimum total time" for a drive thru transaction to count as a valid timing event. If a drive thru transaction does not meet this minimum time, it is recorded as an "Unexpected Enter" or "Unexpected Quit" in the DTD's sensor data, but does not count as a valid drive thru transaction and is not included in reports.

DTD-334. 409

.Added the ability to individually configure DTD alerts. Alerts display on the upper right hand corner of your DTD:

Improvements

DTD-288

Upgraded controller's PHP version to 5.6.6 to address CVE-2015-0235 (GHOST).

DTD-339

Addressed an issue where the pickup area may hold two vehicle icons at the same time after a possible drive-off was detected.

DTD-342

Addressed animation issues that may occur while vehicle icons are moving through a "Y" layout.

DTD-349

Addressed an issue where the DTD could display a black screen after a software upgrade until a reset occurred.

Implementation Date: March 19, 2015

New Features

DTD-277

Added the "Car stuck in queue" diagnostic message. If a vehicle has triggered a sense or been in line for more than 15 minutes, the DTD will consider this to be potentially incomplete timing data and display a red diagnotic message across the entire screen advising, "Car stuck in queue."
