Can I set the seat number manually?

[color=#000000][size=medium][font=Calibri, sans-serif][color=#111111][size=small][font=Tahoma, sans-serif]I want to use the DWM1001 system in a large area where I need a lot of anchors, even with overlapping areas. [/font][/size][/color][/font][/size][/color]

[color=#000000][size=medium][font=Calibri, sans-serif][color=#111111][size=small][font=Tahoma, sans-serif]During my testing with the system I figured out that if I remove an anchor in the middle of a system (20 anchors) other anchors will change their seat number (over time) accordingly, which can lead to some problems when the anchor tries to reconnect. E.q. the seat number is taken by another anchor but all the seats which a still free are in range of an anchor with the same number. [/font][/size][/color][/font][/size][/color]

Hi Daniel,

It is not possible to set the seat number manually. Once your system is deployed and stabled (not physical change such as new anchors joining or strong LOS change), then the seat allocation should be locked.

There is no way for the user to “tell” the system to rearrange the anchor seats.

Thank you,

First of all thanks a lot for your fast answer. :slight_smile:

Since my last post I tested the system and I observed some random Seat Number swapping between the anchors.
I summed it all up in a figure: In the attached graphic the Seat Numbers are shown over the course of several days for different Anchors (color code).
Apart from the chaos between the 19/07 and 21/07 where two anchors in the middle of the system lost power (my bad), I observed that the seat number at the anchors is not stable over time.
The shown anchors are just a part of a greater system.
The system is build out of 20 anchors in an office building wich is roughly 20x70 meters.

Could this behaviour be due two signal lost between the anchors?
Or could it be that changes in the environment lead to variations in the signal quality between the anchors and there for interferences with the allocation of the seat numbers?
For example: One Anchor is just sometimes in range of two anchors with the same seat numbers.

I am not sure of your environment, but for example, if you set up a system with e.g. office doors closed, or items in the way of the anchors, the anchors will join and get allocated seats. If later these obstacles are removed and anchors can hear more anchors around them, there may be anchors which hear anchors with the same seat numbers. These will be detected as “collisions”, and the system will work to resolve them by asking offending anchors to leave the network and rejoin. Upon rejoining the anchors may get new seat numbers, or may not be able to rejoin if the system is already full.
