Agtonomy, a San Francisco, CA-based hybrid autonomy and tele-assist service platform, launched out of stealth with $4m in seed funding.
Backers included Grit Ventures, GV (formerly Google Ventures), and Village Global.
The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.
Led by Tim Bucher, Co-Founder and CEO, Agtonomy is a hybrid autonomy and tele-assist service platform that turns tractors and other equipment into autonomous machines. A sensor suite and custom software stack enable remote modes of operation with flexibility and safety features in comparison to conventional equipment. Agtonomy, through its OEM partners, will address both local farming and broader land maintenance operations, including routine mowing and weeding as well as wildfire prevention through land clearing.
