Ok did git fetch pull and git clone of this plugin in Lunux Ubuntu
Watchman_pi git clone git://github.com/seandepagnier/watchman_pi.git
Then compiled it, and tested it using Rasch.nmea file and VDR plugin. Tried to get screen
capture of boats almost coliding. I was just a bit late a couple of times....
At first I was wondering what this plugin would actually do, now I am convinced that it has some realy good possibillities.
Like the Course error alarm, Landfall alarm and Ais
off alarms. The last frame show Landfall alarrm in red, but the sound did not operate in this case.
-These suggestions below are "future" possibilities....
1. It would be nice to be able to TEST the alerts and alarms to see if they work or are connected coreectly (hardware-software thing).
2. Someone (not Sean) could add a second louder alarm and user defined wait period duplicating a couple of lines of existing code. The two alarms would just sound at the same time.
3. I have hopes this will run in Windows. Hakan had some success previously, perhaps he can test more in real world situation. It has geat possibilities.
4. It has no GPS
and no AIS
alarms. Doe it have an AIS Boat Collision
5. How about MARPA Boat collision
alarrm? -This is too sophisticated right now, but perhaps later. -How many have Marrpa?
6. Maybe a DSC
alarm upon an MOB DSC
7. What else?
Sean, at first I had trouble picturing what this would actually do. Now I get it. Thanks.
