FullChest sorting storage system

This program uses a robot to sort items into simple storage system. I am using iron chests mod here. There is an input chest (golden), storage chests (iron), and an overflow chest (diamond). The robot is placed behind the input chest facing the chest and I recommend placing a charger next to it. Red blocks are always required, orange and yellow blocks are required depending on storage size (in this one, orange blocks are needed). I usually place them all to be sure. The storage chests must always be on the right from the input chest.

Each storage chest must have no empty slot! If you want a chest to contain certain items, put one of these items into a slot like this:

The robot then goes around in zig-zag pattern and tries to put each item into each chest. All chests have no empty slots, therefore only wanted items can be put into each chest - for all other items the chest is full.

If the robot is waiting on the start, it checks the input chest for new items every 10 seconds. If an item is found it will start sorting in 1 minute (except for the first check - then it si immidiet).

robot = require("robot")
os = require("os")
computer = require("computer")

totalSlots = robot.inventorySize()

function dropAll(slots)
    for i = 1, slots, 1 do
        robot.select(i)
        robot.drop()
    end
    robot.select(1)
end

function suckAll()
    count = 0
    while robot.suck() do
        count = count + 1
    end
    return count
end

-- direction false - left
-- direction true - right
function next(direction)
    if not direction then
        robot.turnLeft()
    else
        robot.turnRight()
    end
    b = robot.forward()
    if not direction then
        robot.turnRight()
    else
        robot.turnLeft()
    end
    return b
end

while true do
    first = true
    while robot.suck() == false do
        print("check")
        first = false
        os.sleep(10)
    end
    robot.drop()
    print("Sorting is starting...")
    if not first then
        print("in 60 seconds...")
        os.sleep(60)
    end
    print("now!")
    usedSlots = suckAll()

    if usedSlots > totalSlots then
        usedSlots = totalSlots
    end

    direction = false

    robot.turnLeft()
    robot.forward()
    robot.forward()
    robot.turnRight()


    while true do
        dropAll(usedSlots)
        while next(direction) do
            dropAll(usedSlots)
        end
        print("end of row")
        if not robot.up() then
            -- last row
            print("end of sorting")
            robot.turnRight()
            while robot.forward() do end
            robot.turnLeft()
            dropAll(usedSlots)
            while robot.down() do end
            dropAll(totalSlots) -- just to be sure
            break
        end
        direction = not direction
    end
end
