Built Robotics

Built Robotics is a robotics company that develops AI guidance systems to transform heavy equipment into autonomous robots.

Built Robotics is building self-driving heavy equipment to make construction safer, faster and more productive. 

Built Robotics was founded in 2016 by Noah Ready-Campbell and Andrew Liang. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California.


Built combines sensors such as GPS, cameras, and lidar with advanced software. As the inventor of the world’s first autonomy solution for excavators, the Exosystem™, Built transforms excavators into fully autonomous trenching robots.


Built's upgrade kit, the Exosystem™, can be installed and calibrated on an excavator in less than a day. Contractors can rent Exosystems as standalone units to install on their fleet of equipment, or they can lease pre-upgraded excavators from Built directly.


Built's Exosystems are deployed today across the $1 trillion earthmoving industry, building critical infrastructure in energy, telecom, and more.


Built Robotics is backed by Tiger Global, NEA, Founders Fund, Fifth Wall, Next47, Building Ventures, Lemnos, Presidio Ventures, and others. The company raised $64M in Series C round on Apr 06, 2022. This brings Built Robotics' total funding to $112M to date.
