Pio grid is a framework that provides storage space for all the goods in the warehouse. The grid is made of lightweight aluminum.
You will be using double grid with double driving tracks in both directions.
Each location inside the grid is called a cell.
Different cell types
Cells in the grid are used for different purposes.
Storage: cells that are used to store bins
Empty: cells that do not hold a bin
Port: cells that are above a port
Buffer: cells that are located next to a port
Street: cells that are kept clear so that robots can drive over them
Special: reserved for special purposes
Exit cell: where robots will be parked and taken out of the grid

Sometimes it is necessary to locate a specific bin in or on top of the Grid. Pio uses a coordinate system for this. The coordinate system has three axis:
Robot charging position is the cell in front of the charger. This is where robots go to charge.
Handrail and robot barrier
Each grid also comes with guard systems that consists of a hand rail and a robot barrier. It serves to keep the robots safe on top of the grid.
