P-MATIC Series 1189 Automated Truck

Powerful robotic tow tractor

Versatile load transport in all areas of operation

The autonomous Linde P-MATIC electric tow tractor with operator platform is designed for load transfers in work areas with restricted space. It can move towing loads of between 3.0 - 5.0 tonnes.

The Linde robotics trucks bring together popular Linde manual trucks and intelligent navigation technology. They provide 24/7 operation, high accuracy and reliable automatic logistics handling solutions, which optimises your costs of operation. Typical uses in warehouses and industrial businesses include the delivery of production materials, disposal of waste products, and hauling of larger loads. The tow tractors, whether as individual vehicles or part of an autonomous fleet, thereby form an integral link in the supply chain – from production to the delivery area.


  • Adopting SICK safety CPU module and multiple safety scanners, 360° all-round safety protection and 3D obstacle detection is achieved. The smart safety system helps collect data about its working environment optically and adaptively reacts.
  • Laser detectors and a 3D camera allows the system to reliably recognise moving and stationary obstacles and adjusts its speed accordingly, or remains stationary, until the person, truck or other obstacle is removed or leaves its monitoring zone.
  • Two emergency buttons, warning sounds and flashing lights.
  • Meets EN ISO3691-4 safety requirements.

Linde Robotics trucks are designed to work in a shared environment with humans with the user-friendly interface providing all needed controls and information at a glance.

  • Navigational system used does not require any additional laser reflectors or tracks on the floor, therefore making it flexible and scalable. Can be easily adapted to on-site operating conditions.
  • Easy to achieve communication with automated facilities such as doors and roller conveyors, as well as to integrate the vehicle with warehouse management or ERP systems via the control software.
  • The automatic and manual modes can be quickly switched with the press of a button.
  • Achieves a maximum forward speed of up to 2m/s, a backward speed of up to 0.8m/s and a turning speed of up to 0.7m/s.
  • 7-inch touch screen displaying vehicle status/alarm indicator, real-time task management, real-time path display, basic parameter setting and fault diagnosis.
  • All vehicle data can be read on a service laptop and analysed there with software tools.
  • Vehicle can be monitored and regulated remotely via a computer-controlled diagnostic function.
  • All electronic service components are easily accessible.
  • Powered by Linde’s own maintenance-free AC motor, which ensures minimal maintenance downtime.
