    Some small updates to AGV components in 4.0 eCat:

    -Pick and place locations now have parameters for Loading- and Unloading time


    -Pick locations have now parameter “Select AGV”.

    ->SelectAGV is used only when LocalCall is used (Pick Locations select and reserve AGVs by themselves).

    ->If AGV’s AgvID -property matches Pick Location’s AGV_ID -property, then AGV is selected with “SelectAGV” -method.

    ->ByID selects first AGV with correct AgvID
    ->ByBusy selects first free AGV with correct AgvID
    ->ByUtilization selects least utilized AGV with correct AgvID
    ->ByDistance selects closest free AGV with correct AgvID


    -AGV will now orientate itself to resource frame

    -Controller updated to reflect changes

    -Beta flag removed




    Also some clarification to “LoadMethod” and “UnloadMethod” properties in AGV Pick Location- and AGV Drop Location components:

    ->”Loader” uses mechanism (servo arms) in the component to load the part to the AGV

    ->”RunSequence” search through robots in the layout and if routine defined in “SequenceName” -property is found, that routine is executed.

    ->”PublishAndWaitSignals” triggers “PublishStart” and “PublishComp” signals (to any component they are manually connected to) and Location component waits for “PublishDone” signal before continuing that transfer / movements are done.
