AGV: Self-Driving Forklift Truck, Robot lift truck, Automatic Fork Lift Truck


  • An ‘AGV’ is an autonomous self-driven fork truck that brings the cost of internal pallet transfers down to an absolute minimum.
  • When profitability is a priority - it pays to operate fork trucks without drivers because the cost of employing drivers is replaced by the much smaller cost of acquiring and running an AGV.
  • An AGV solution from Webster Griffin can be operational within 4-6 weeks. From the moment a self-driven fork truck starts working you have reduced your operating cost.

Simple, Scalable, User-Friendly Technology


  • From the moment a driverless pallet truck starts working you benefit from a reduction in your monthly operating costs (ask us to calculate the monthly saving).
  • If you operate two shifts per day, one AGV will replace the cost of hiring a fork truck plus the wages of two (2) drivers - and if you run 24 hrs/day -you will save the wages of three (3) drivers
  • With an AGV you ‘Earn while you save’, because buying and operating a ‘self-driven’ pallet truck costs appreciably less than operating a manually driven truck, so your company will stay lean – creating wealth for further investment.
  • Implementing a self-driving pallet truck is easier and quicker than you think – as soon as your AGV starts rolling your operating costs go down and you become more profitable.

 QUICK INSTALLATION  -                                   24 HR SUPPORT

  • An AGV solution from Webster Griffin can be operational within 5-6 weeks.
  • It will be delivered to your site in 4-5 weeks, then commissioned in 3 -5 days.
  • Provided that you have a smooth level concrete floor, it is installed without the need for any modifications to your factory.
  • The on-board navigation system utilises 360 Degree LiDAR ‘geo-mapping' technology, which sees your factory in 3D (Night & Day), and precise ultra-sonic position sensors. Turn your AGV ‘off ‘- then power up again -and your AGV knows exactly where it is.
  • Owing to Linde’s standard tiller control it’s a simple task to scan and map the area  & ‘teach’ your AGV the routes it must follow. Because it does not depend upon any ancillary navigation devices, like reflectors or a wire in the floor, it is quick to install.
  • Our AGV can follow complex convoluted routes in an open factory environment or travel along passageways inside an existing building.
  • Using the on-board operator interface screen you have an overview of the AGV’s workflow. Whether you access the control via your PC, tablet or phone - you encounter the same interface screen
  • If you wish to add an extra vehicle or need help setting up a completely different route - just call the Webster Griffin service department.
  • For a fixed monthly subscription all customers must join the Software Licence Agreement and benefit from the 24 hours /day Service Hotline.

Linde Reliability - LiDAR Navigation - Webster Griffin Know-How
