Can you change the speed of a AGV between two points?

I have searched the forms and cant seem to find a answer to this simple question. I have a AGV network that runs in a big loop and I would like the AGV's to slow down during a section then speed back up to normal speeds.

Can this be done?

Thanks,

@David Blaylock If you open the network properties (right click on a network, bottom option) you will find a tabpage with AGV Types where you can define Path Classes (so types of paths) standard there are already 3 types defined (straight, curved and spur) and you can define your own as well. In the table below you can enter the speeds for each type of path for forward and reverse speeds and also different speeds for loaded or empty (or any other state or load type you want to define, for instance lifted or lowered or something similar). See this picture:

Then the last thing you have to do is click on a path section and tell it what Path Class it is. And you can do that in the quick properties like this:

So to change the speed between 2 points make it a separate section and make it the appropriate path class.

Steven,

Thank you for your answer!!!!!! I can not tell you how many times I have looked at this tab and read about it and it never clicked in my head. I know it was easy and I had to get out of my own way to see it. Thank you so much again for the help!!!!!!!

If you define a new Load Type besides Empty and Loaded how do you address it?

For example, Load Type Very Heavy. How does the AGV know that the load is Very Heavy?

Thanks,

The Initialize Travel function on that tab sets the load type.
