The LD is an autonomous mobile robot capable of transporting materials in challenging environments that may include confined spaces as well as active workers and forklifts. Unlike traditional autonomously guided vehicles, the LD requires no facility modifications such as floor magnets or navigational beacons, making deployment easier and less costly.
