 +- `scanContentsAt(x:​ number, y: number, z: number[, worldId: number]):​boolean,​ string, table`  ​
 +  Returns contents at the location in world by id (defaults to host world). This method behaves the same as the move check for the robot and drone. The first return value is a boolean indicating whether a robot or drone would be able to enter the location (true means it would be blocked and cannot move into that space). The second return is a string value short name of the type of obstruction. Possible values here include: EntityLivingBase,​ EntityMinecart,​ air, liquid, replaceable,​ passable, and solid.The final value returned is a serialized or table representation of the entity or block scanned at the location. The following code snippet can be used to debug what is possibly blocking the robot from moving forward, if the robot is facing in the negative x direction.
