About AutonomouStuff

AutonomouStuff, a Hexagon company, is the world leader in supplying R&D platforms, products, software and engineering services for the advancement of robotics and autonomy systems.

In 2010, company founder Bobby Hambrick noticed that, due to a significant gap in the industry supply chain, robotics companies were having a hard time getting the technology they needed to build applications. He created AutonomouStuff to be the place where they could find the products they needed to get projects up and running.

AutonomouStuff experienced exponential growth, opening offices throughout the United States, in China and Europe, before being acquired by Hexagon in September 2018. As part of Hexagon’s Autonomy and Positioning division, AutonomouStuff’s influence on the autonomy industry has expanded further, with refinements to on-road autonomous vehicle technology and innovations in off-road autonomy applications.

At AutonomouStuff, we have created an environment that fosters innovation and brings out the best in people. Our dedicated team is experienced, knowledgeable and passionate. We stand confidently behind our products because we know they are the best in the industry. And, as the industry changes, we continually adapt.

Around the world, there have been thousands of technical demonstrations using the products and expertise we provided. How awesome is that?

Home sweet home

AutonomouStuff headquarters is in Morton, Illinois, an exuberant, growing community of about 17,000. The city has seen steady growth in residential, industrial and retail development over the past decade.

Business Insider magazine ranked Morton number one in their 2014 list of 25 Best Value Suburbs in America. The ranking was based on education, safety, economic conditions and affordable real estate. (Seriously, why aren’t you here yet?)

We’re very proud of our growth and expansion over the years and excited to see where the future takes us, and central Illinois will always be home.
