AUTOMATED TRUCKS

Driverless around-the-clock

Automated logistics trucks are the future of efficient material flows. They take over tiring transport tasks from employees, increase the handling volume, and reduce the error and accident rates in the warehouse. Linde Material Handling offers a wide range of cutting-edge automation solutions with electric forklifts, pallet trucks, and tow tractors from the MATIC series. All models are equipped with intelligent navigation and safety technology, but can also be maneuvered conventionally via manual control.

Geonavigation

The Linde MATIC trucks are controlled by a geonavigation system. Four optical laser sensors scan the truck environment in all directions with a range of up to 30 meters (standard version). The immediate environment is captured by a 3D camera, which is mounted at the highest point of the truck chassis. The data from both recording systems are processed centrally. This enables coordination with other automated trucks and ensures that the MATIC models operate safely even in confined spaces.

External guides, such as guide rails laid in the floor or light reflectors, are not necessary. When changing location, the trucks completely re-map their environment.

NETWORKED

The spectrum ranges from implementation without any system connection, to networking with operational systems, machines, and facilities.

SAFE

The comprehensive equipment, such as scanners and cameras, guarantees traffic safety, even in mixed working conditions.

FLEXIBLE

The geonavigation does not require any expensive infrastructure. Routes and reference points can be easily adapted to all conditions.

TRANSPARENT

The system generates valuable data, which can be used to help precisely optimize the productivity of logistics processes.

Tailor-made trucks

All trucks in the MATIC series can be fitted with optional additional features and tailored to your specific application. The trucks can be equipped with different drive and lifting motors, different battery sizes, hydraulically adjustable forks, electronically authenticated battery locks, and a programmable height restriction of the mast, among other things. In addition, a 2D curtain laser as well as additional laser sensors on the sides of the truck are available for better navigation.
