Innovation Is Independence

Solar is our ticket to energy independence. Other countries are rapidly outpacing the United States in electricity generated from solar power. Every watt of solar not built is a missed opportunity for our nation to lead in manufacturing, technology, job creation, and infrastructure.1

Our Impact

Powered by American workers. Developing frontier technologies requires us to push boundaries. Working with American manufacturers and organizations helps Built go further. Together, we’re forging a new path for autonomy.

Career Training & Education

New tools require new roles: the Robotic Equipment Operator (REO) is role developed by Built to manage robotic operations. We’ve partnered with the IUOE to begin the initial curriculum development and training for this new type of worker.

Hardware & Exosystem

Seven years of development have created the industry’s most durable, rugged, technologically advanced autonomous upgrade for heavy equipment. The Exosystem is powered by trusted components that deliver unrivaled results.

Open Source Software

Contributions to robotic automation — made freely available — help encourage other developers to bring autonomy to more places. Our Python implementation of the Reeds-Shepp Library is the same software our own machines rely on to move in space.

Stewardship & Advocacy

Working with the industry, Built provides insight into the practical applications of autonomy within construction and the solar industry, while sharing the advances made in safety, technology, and workforce training needed to bring robotics to scale.

Innovation without action is just an idea. Since our founding, this country has achieved incredible feats together. Now, we’re facing new challenges, and the only way to overcome them is to work together to build the next great chapter of American innovation.
