Class SpeedUtil

  • public class SpeedUtil
    extends java.lang.Object
    All speed related method transferred from Engineer and Warrant classes. Until June 2017, the problem of determining the actual track speed of a model train in millimeters per millisecond (same as meters/sec) from the throttle setting was usually done with an ad hoc "throttle factor". When created, the RosterSpeedProfile provides this needed conversion but generally is not done by users for each of their locos. Methods to dynamically determine a RosterSpeedProfile for each loco are implemented in this class.
    • Method Detail

      • getRosterId

        public java.lang.String getRosterId()
        Set the key identifier for the Speed Profile If a RosterEntry exists, _rosterId is the RosterEntry id or possibly is the RosterEntrytitle. Otherwise it may be just the decoder address
        key to speedProfile
      • setRosterId

        public boolean setRosterId​(java.lang.String id)
        Set a key to a loco's roster and speed info. If there is no RosterEntry, the id still locates a session SpeedProfile for the loco. Called from: SpeedUtil.setDccAdress(String) - main parser WarrantFrame.setup() - edit existing warrant WarrantManagerXml - load warrant
        id - key to speedProfile
        true if RosterEntry exists for id
      • getAddress

        protected java.lang.String getAddress()
      • setDccAddress

        protected void setDccAddress​(DccLocoAddress dccAddr)
        Called by: Warrant.setRunMode() about to run a warrant WarrantFrame.setup() for an existing warrant WarrantTableModel.cloneWarrant() when cloning an existing warrant
        dccAddr - DccLocoAddress
      • setDccAddress

        public boolean setDccAddress​(int number,
                                     java.lang.String type)
      • setAddress

        public boolean setAddress​(java.lang.String id)
        Sets dccAddress and key for a speedProfile. Will fetch RosterEntry if one exists. If _rosterEntry exists, _rosterId set to RosterEntry Id (which may or not be "id") else _rosterId set to "id" or decoder address. Called from: DefaultConditional.takeActionIfNeeded() - execute a setDccAddress action SpeedUtil.makeSpeedTree() - need to use track speeds WarrantFrame.checkTrainId() - about to run, assures address is set Warrantroute.getRoster() - selection form _rosterBox WarrantRoute.setAddress() - whatever is in _dccNumBox.getText() WarrantRoute.setTrainPanel() - whatever in _dccNumBox.getText() WarrantTableModel.setValue() - whatever address is put into the ADDRESS_COLUMN

      • leavingBlock

        protected void leavingBlock​(int blkIdx)
        Just entered a new block at 'toTime'. Do the calculation of speed of the previous block from when the previous block block was entered. Throttle changes within the block will cause different speeds. We attempt to accumulate these time and distances to calculate a weighted speed average. See method speedChange() below.
        blkIdx - BlockOrder index of the block the engine just left. (not train) The lead engine just entered the next block after blkIdx.
