Platypus, LLC is the world leader in low cost water data collection.  We provide monitoring solutions globally using autonomous, co-operative robotic boats.

Helping improve the world's largest resource is central to our mission and shapes our strategy, but until recently data has been sparse or unavailable.  We make collecting information about water easy and affordable so that environmental health can be monitored and improved.

The Pittsburgh based company was spun out of Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute in 2012. The spin out has been facilitated by financial and mentoring support from Innovation Works, the Centre for Technology Transition and Enterprise Creation and Project Olympus
