The TRANSnet Public Transport Priority System for SCATS now has a new SMS reporting sub-system that can automatically send an SMS alert to up to three mobile devices if a vehicle update alert is received. Settings are managed through the Preferences dialog.
This allows unexpected outages of field communications devices to be instantly reported for attention/action by support staff, thus keeping the system operating effectively and efficiently.
A test button is also provided that sends a Test Text Message to the phone. This is provided to check that the system is configured correctly.
