Company Summary

Augean Robotics is a full stack (hardware/software/data) company building robots to help people work more productively, with the long term objective of automating all tedious work people do outdoors. Our launch product, Burro, is a robotic platform that follows workers, moves cargo autonomously, and captures the data needed to further automate work outdoors. Today, we are shipping prototypes into paid field tests with the world's largest growers.
