We are Auterion
Auterion provides enterprise with an ecosystem of software-defined drones, payloads, and apps within a single easy to use platform based on open-source standards.
On the same mission for over a decade
We’re leaders in an open source movement bigger than ourselves that works together to meet the needs of enterprises, government, and drone manufacturers. We believe in openness, partnership, engineering excellence, and empowering the drone industry.
We’ve been on the same mission for over a decade. Our story began with Pixhawk in 2008 and the revolutionary PX4 software created by our co-founder Lorenz Meier, now the most widely used open-source drone autopilot operating system. In 2019 we contributed over half of the 1.4 million lines of code added to PX4.
With offices in California and R&D in Switzerland, we’ve raised $25M in venture-backed funding. Today, our software platform powers the drones of some of the leaders in the industry, including General Electric (GE) Aviation, Quantum Systems, Freefly Systems, Avy, and the U.S. Department of Defense.
WHAT WE DO
We accelerate the drone industry
Our goal is to be the drone software platform of choice for enterprises and drone manufacturers, while accelerating the industry by driving forward open standards to create a common, future-proof roadmap. This gives everyone involved, whether vendors or buyers, confidence that they will achieve a return on their investment, and access to a wide choice of partners and integrations in an open ecosystem.
We create all our software and hardware using open source technologies like PX4 and open standards like MAVLink and Pixhawk. Today, we are the largest contributor to PX4 and the Auterion software platform powers consumer, commercial, and industrial drones of every type, from multicopters to VTOLs.
CODE OF ETHICS
Auterion’s work is guided by a clear code of ethics
Autonomous technology and drones can be used for a wide set of use cases across enterprise and government applications. With this, there are certain applications and relationships that Auterion will not pursue.
HOW WE WORK
We believe in open source and common standards
Common standards for a scalable industry
We work closely with the global industry and standardization bodies to establish common standards that make drone components and products easier for everyone to produce, integrate, and maintain.
We are the largest contributor to PX4
In 2011 our co-founder Lorenz Meier created PX4, the world’s most widely used open-source flight controller for drones and other unmanned vehicles. Today, it is the core of what we do at Auterion.
