Update Counts


Update Counts, for the attributes of the vehicle associated with the source region for the executed decision, increments the Group Count Array Point and the total release count.

If the routed Item's attribute value matches the parsed value (from the Attribute Value array point) corresponding to the attribute name (from the Attribute Name array point), the Spacing Count and the Attribute Released Count elements will be incremented by 1.
