The no-compromise solution


LEO Locative is a driverless, battery-operated transport system designed for moving bins and cartons sized between 200 x 350 mm min. and 600 x 400 mm max. and a weight of up to 20 kg.

  • links workstations and performs in-house transport tasks in all areas where goods must be moved.
  • does not require a central computer or a wireless local area network (WLAN). The system can be put into service immediately and wherever you need to move loads.


LEO Locative follows an optical track and can distinguish track colours.

  • reads navigation commands programmed into floor markers.
  • picks up loads at one transfer station and deposits them at the next station.


LEO Locative features a plug & play system for immediate use without manual intervention.

  • provides quick application and navigation programming without external help.
  • adapts easily to an enlarged radius of activity by simply adding pick-up and drop-off stations.


LEO Locative keeps your investment costs low. Prices for a complete system start at EUR 8,300!

  • is a cost-saving transport aid for moving materials around a plant or a warehouse.
  • is an interesting AGV option also for smaller companies.

LEO Vehicle

LEO vehicles operate without driver and are very user-friendly.

LEO vehicles are supplied ready-mounted and fully charged - just place battery into housing and get going!

LEO Stations

The LEO Locative system can be enlarged by transfer stations. LEO vehicles either collect bins at these stations or deliver bins there. Double stations provide both functions - bin pick-up and drop-off. Stations are supplied ready-mounted. They only need to be positioned in the right place to support your operations.

Transfer stations are available as single or as double station.

    • LEO vehicles collect bins from the stations on a loop and/or deliver them to LEO stations.
    • Bin lifting and lowering are fully mechanical operations supported by a patented system.
    • Single stations and double stations can be added as required.
    • A single station can be converted into a double station to reduce the number of empty rides and to increase vehicle efficiency on loops.

LEO Stations

    • Bins are collected or delivered at LEO stations.
    • A patented system controls mechanical bin lifting and lowering.
    • Single stations can be converted into a double station.
    • This reduces the number of empty rides and increases efficiency.
    • Infrared signals communicate with LEO vehicles to signal whether a station is clear for entry.

Station accessories

    • LEO stations can be completed with sort & pick tables and roller conveyor buffer lanes.
    • Roller lanes are supplied in standard lengths of 1.20 metres and 2.40 metres.

Power supply

    • LEO is rated for 230 V and is connected to the power network with a SCHUKO plug.
    • 24 V DC transformer
    • LEO is powered by a rechargeable battery.

Travel routes

    • LEO navigates by lane colour
    • Vehicle paths are defined by simply sticking lane tape on the floor.
    • A LEO route must always be a loop.
    • LEO vehicles are not able to reverse or to drive backwards.
    • Every delivery includes a route marking template.
    • Lane marking tapes are available in 3 colours: green, red and blue.
    • Marking tapes are supplied in several qualities:

      “Flex” tapes for low-use areas, “Robust” tapes for regular-use areas and occasional cleaning, “Ultra” tapes for high-use areas and floors with regular truck traffic and frequent cleaning.


Code markers

  • Markers are the brain of the LEO Locative system:

    • They help to program applications, change settings and define paths.
    • LEO Locative recognizes and reads QR codes.
    • All you need to do is to position floor markers on the vehicle path.
    • All markers bear a self-explanatory icon to show the marker function.
    • Markers are self-adhesive and are laminated for increased protection against wear and tear.
    • Each LEO kit is supplied with a selection of markers.
    • Complex applications can be realised with simple yet clever marker and lane tape combinations.

      LEO reads all navigation details on the markers:

      • Where is my next destination
      • Which station comes next
      • What is the name of the station
      • What comes at the right or left side of a switch
      • Where is my battery charging station
      • Which lane colour is the right one


  • LEO Locative complies with European Standard DIN EN 1525 for driverless industrial trucks and their systems.
  • LEO vehicles have been developed in close cooperation with the relevant German accident insurance association in Germany.
  • Emergency stop buttons on both vehicle sides allow to immediately switch-off LEO.
  • The front bumper absorbs shocks if there should be a collision in the dead angle of the obstacle detector.
  • Sensor detects obstacles
  • Obstacles are also detected in curves.
