AStuff expansion and acquisition
AutonomouStuff is growing in more ways than one. We bought a new building that more than quadruples our current development space. This allows us to build even more Automated Research Development Platforms and continue to ensure our customers’ success. 

In other exciting news, Hexagon has signed an agreement to acquire AutonomouStuff.

This month's favorite: Lee Baldwin
We're excited to have Lee Baldwin join the AutonomouStuff team as our Data Intelligence Director. Baldwin comes to AutonomouStuff from Caterpillar, where he worked closely with the mine management system — MineStar. His last assignment as MineStar Engineering Manager put him in direct contact with cutting-edge technology and software that enable semi-autonomous drilling. He has extensive experience with program management, systems engineering, software development and technology deployment. Baldwin led the engineering team in Australia that was responsible for the command and control application for Caterpillar's autonomous hauling system. He has gathered valuable experience in industries around the United States and Australia that will be of great use to AutonomouStuff. 

"AutonomouStuff is fast-paced and I am excited to be part of what they are doing here," Baldwin said.
