transporter control



as below  figure,a product need to through station S1--S2--S3--S4--S5,the product delivery between station per the transporter(one  of the two transporters that is free)。when  a  station finished product,it will  judge if the next station is free,if next station is free ,it will judge which transporter is free ,and waituntil one transporter is  can  realize  this. I find the code "waituntil"  do not very well control transporter.for example at one moment ,one transporter is free ,but two station use "waituntil"  ttay will not control微信截图_20180602131044.png

One possibility to check if a station is empty, is to attach an observer, set the value "empty".
Then you could directly call a method from there in the previous station;
and by the method in the previous station activate a regular stop for the vehicle on the track.
You can insert a condition if the transporter is empty.

build an frame consisting of Station and Track
concatenate five of these frames
each time a transporter reaches the end of the track it checks whether a part is ready to be transferred

you could do this with sensors too, but I prefer the way above
