We build the autonomous space on Earth


We enable mobile robotics at scale by making deployments 100x cheaper by powering drones to work autonomously

Auterion is a software company bringing open-source and open-standards into the mobile robotics industry for a simplified user and deployment experience through connected and autonomous fleets of drones in the air and on the ground. This allows for easy data collection, cargo delivery or ISR missions with data integration into existing or new workflows.

For this we are creating new infrastructure, a new space: Roads are made to transport people, so we need new airways for autonomous vehicles: The autonomous space, starting at rooftops and ending below manned aviation. This piece of infrastructure is available globally and Auterion is the company unlocking its value.



We’ve been leaders in an open source movement for more than a decade

In 2011 our 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.

Founded to drive open source forward in the drone industry

Lorenz founded Auterion in 2017 with Kevin Sartori to make his vision for PX4 sustainable and scalable in the long term, by creating a company committed to maintaining the open source ecosystem and distribution model; and which supports other companies to use it in their products and services.
