Our Mission

Our mission at Augean Robotics is to solve the labor problem facing farmers by making robots like Wall-E a reality. To do this, we are starting first with a collaborative robotic platform called Burro, that helps people work more productively today, while building the base for more expansive autonomy where it is needed most. We believe this is the path towards a future where farming is fully autonomous.

Our team includes robotic startup veterans with deep experience in computer vision, robotics, and deep learning, as well as entrepreneurs with direct experience selling and marketing high tech farm/construction machinery with some of the world’s largest companies. We get up every day excited to build the future, where robots do all tedious tasks outdoors.
