Create bids only from vehicles with status "available"

See original GitHub issue

Thanks you for your help ❤️

What is this project?

DAV (Decentralized Autonomous Vehicles) is a new foundation working to build an open-source infrastructure for autonomous vehicles (cars, drones, trucks, robots, and all the service providers around them) to communicate and transact with each other over blockchain.

The specific project you are looking at is Mission Control. It is the brain in charge of orchestrating missions between DAV users and autonomous vehicles.

How you can help

Mission Control comes with a built in simulation environment which generates and controls simulated vehicles, allowing developers to start developing without investing in costly hardware first.

When a request for a delivery is raised by the user, vehicles will participate in the bidding. Right now bidding is done by all the vehicles, including the ones not available.

What you can do

Modify bids.js to only create bids from vehicles that have a status of available.

Sure @bicep - you’re exactly right - a Need is the “request” that comes from the client application (e.g. an end user that needs a drone delivery) - this is then sent to autonomous vehicles who in turn send their bids for supplying the need. Does that make sense now?

Hey @koutron - maybe we can let @bicep take this one? Also please let us know if you’d like to help in any other way.

@bicep Please go ahead and take this - thanks!
