B&R Intelligent transport system software
mapp Trak ensures that shuttles do not collide, cross virtual barriers or violate configurable speed limits. FDA-compliant tracking also can be implemented. The software links the product data with the respective shuttles, making the manufacturing process traceable. The track system application is created using process-oriented programming. Software engineers define shuttle behavior rules, which become active when shuttles pass virtual trigger points. Integrated simulation options enable developers to run tests to identify the optimal number and speed of shuttles to maximize productivity. The same system software is used in both the simulation and the real plant, making it possible to switch between simulation and real operation at any time.
