How does it work?

Winner of the Jury Prize + Public Prize 2019

In 2019, the Lowpad by Eurotec was named the best logistics innovation of 2019 by the expert jury of the Logistica Award 2019. The six-member jury referred to the Lowpad as a ‘new milestone’ in the rapid development of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs). The vehicle, standing at just 12 centimeters tall, was capable of lifting and moving shelving units, roll cages, and Danish trolleys. Its distinctive feature was the powered steering wheels located at the four corners of the vehicle, allowing the Lowpad to move in any direction from a standstill, including diagonally or around corners.
