Technology Options – Remote Control & AGV Capability
The updated MasterTow range of electric tow tugs are pedestrian operated as standard, but now feature a number of control options for customers wanting advanced solutions.
Multi-directional remote control operation allows the operator to take up the ideal vantage point away from the load – ideal when moving large loads and operating in tight spaces.
Remote Control – Wireless Autosteer
An operator controls speed and instigates movement with the line follow navigation delivering accurate, repeatable movements.
AGV – Line Follow
The electric tow utilises line follow navigation, but moves autonomously, using best-in-class safety systems to identify hazards and manage risk.
