In the operation of a four-station robot, it is desirable to know the readiness state of each station. Also, because of the way the language is written for the computer controlling the robot functions, it may be necessary to use as few information bits as possible so as not to exceed user's space. A two-bit truth table for four stations would look as follows: Sum of Rows STA1 0 -1 -1 STA2 0 0 0 STA3 -1 0 -1 STA4 -1 -1 -2.
