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 & Andrew Liang and is based in San Francisco, California.


Built Robotics technology combines sensors such as GPS, cameras, and lidar with advanced software, and the systems can be installed on standard equipment from any manufacturer.

The Built Robotics autonomous system is able to operate on bulldozers, excavators, and skid steers and is currently being used in a number of clean energy projects in remote areas devoid of human construction workers in Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, and other parts of the Midwestern United States.

Built’s guidance systems are deployed today across the $1 trillion earthmoving industry, and they’re being used to build critical infrastructure such as wind farms, gas pipelines, and new housing developments.


Built Robotics is backed by investors including NEA, Founders Fund, Next47, Lemnos, & Presidio Ventures among others. The company raised $33M from a latest "Series B" financing on Sep 19, 2019. This brings Built Robotics' total funding to $48M to date.
