When moving in free space mode, transporters detect their surroundings and avoid the obstacles using the most efficient route to reach the destination point.
other transporters moving in free space mode are always recognized as
obstacles. If needed, you can also specify most of space markup shapes
specific to Material Handling Library (such
as conveyors, cranes, lifts, etc.) and pallet racks as
obstacles by selecting the Is obstacle
option in their properties.
Movement in free space navigation
Path-guided transporters and pedestrians are ignored by transporters moving in free space mode, which means the transporters will run over these shapes during model execution.
The movement of transporters
in free space is restricted by
Unlike the transporters with path-guided navigation type, you cannot specify any particular route for transporters moving in the free space mode apart from the target they must reach.
The navigation type, home locations and additional rules of movement
for a fleet of transporters are defined in the properties of the TransporterFleet
