04 - VIPS Site Configuration Software Overview

For VIPS to work correctly, the rover needs to know the expected site configuration. This configuration informs the rover of the expected Beacon IDs it will be using and their locations. This information needs to be manually entered by the user using the VIPS Site Configuration Software.

Getting Started

On opening, you are presented with the Files menu which gives the option to load a previously saved site configuration (.JSON file) or create a new configuration. On this screen, you can also choose to save the current settings.

By selecting New, or a previously saved configuration file, you are then presented with options necessary for correct VIPS operation.


The software is navigated by using the menu buttons on the left hand side of the window. Menus include Files, Site, Beacons, Ping Table and Upload.

Pressing the Save button VIPS Site Config Save Button.png on the right hand side of the screen will save a .JSON configuration file locally to your computer, enabling you reuse the configuration at a later date. If you have previously opened a site configuration, pressing Save will overwrite the current file. Alternatively, you can use the dropdown menu to the side of the Save button and select Save as to save the configuration with a different filename.
