Logistic robots are autonomous floating devices capable of transporting resources in a logistic network. They are one of two types of floating robotic devices, the other being construction robots.

The basic movement speed of logistic robots is 0.05 tiles/tick (3 tiles per second) when they have enough power. When out of power, robots move at 20% of their current normal travel speed. This movement speed can be increased infinitely by the worker robot speed (research).

Logistic robots have no means of defending themselves and do not run when they encounter enemies. Despite being a floating entity, ground units using melee are still capable of destroying them.

By default, each robot can only carry one item. This limit can be increased up to four items by the worker robot cargo size (research). Robots consume power per tile traveled, additionally to consuming power per second spent in the air. When they run out of power, they have to recharge at a roboport, or a personal roboport, depending on where the robots were originally placed. Alternatively, they can be mined out of the air by the player which restores their internal power buffer, allowing the player to redeploy them immediately.

Notes

  • Logistic robots will pick up items in the following priority: active provider chests > storage chests, buffer chests > passive provider chests
  • Logistic robots will begin to fill storage chests from active provider chests if there are no other tasks available.
  • The filter that can be set on the storage chest is respected even if items that are actively being pushed to the network can not be stored anywhere else.
  • If a logistic robot carrying an item is unable to deliver its cargo (e.g. if the player moves out of range), it will drop its cargo in a storage chest before moving to other tasks.
