About Antobot

Antobot is an award-winning start-up developing affordable robotics for sustainable agriculture. Our mission is to innovate with a purpose; driving sustainability through deep-tech solutions.

We create highly integrated intelligent robots capable of undertaking various agricultural tasks autonomously through the combination of our solar-powered modular robotic platforms and our automotive-grade universal Robot Control Unit (uRCU®), the robot “brain”, with all our hardware and software developed in-house.

Based between the UK and China, Antobot was founded by embedded controls and robotics experts, now expanded to include diverse talent from the top universities which enabled our title of Champion of the Agri-Epi Agricultural Technology Hackathon 2020.

Our research and development are proudly supported by Innovate UK and the Eastern Agri-Tech Growth Initiative and we are well funded by a strategic investment from a publicly-listed leading automotive electronics corporation.
