Project summary

AFC Automatic Follower Cart

There are numerous daily situations where we are compelled to either push or pull a cart manually in order to transport small quantities of stuffs, products, tools, etc. Many times, the cart does not maneuver properly and this job becomes an annoying and exhausting task. Some illustrative examples may be: the supermarket where we have to push a shopping cart, and especially when the products are taken home; the airport, bus and train stations where we have to move our baggage; daily when kids bring the school bag, etc. In the industrial world these situations are also repeated very often for moving the workstation, tools, pieces, etc. Would not be wonderful whether the cart drive self-guided and spent the effort for us? Our customizable follower motorized cart will do it.


ASTI (Automatismos y Sistemas de Transporte Interno) is an international engineering firm that builds made-to-measure automated intralogistics optimisation solutions.

ASTI forms part of ASTI Technologies Group (ATG), created to deliver technology-based solutions that optimise enterprise productivity.

Ever since we started providing automated intralogistics solutions in 1982 our purpose has been crystal-clear:to increase our clients’ competitiveness.
