Transporter

Overview and Key Concepts

The transporter is used mainly to carry flow items from one object to another. It has a fork lift that will raise to the position of a flow item if it is picking up or dropping off to a rack. It can also carry several flow items at a time if needed.

The transporter is a task executer. It implements offset travel in two ways. First, if there is an involved flow item for the travel operation, then it travels so that the front of the fork lift is positioned at the destination x/y location and raises its fork to the z height of the destination location. Second, if there is no involved flow item for the offset travel operation, then it travels so that its x/y center and z base arrive at the destination location.
