In the present paper we will characterize the continuous distributional solutions of Burgers' equation such as those which induce intrinsic regular graphs in the first Heisenberg group $\mathbb H^1\equiv \mathbb R^{3}$, endowed with a left- invariant metric $d_{\infty}$ equivalent to its Carnot- Carathéodory metric. We will also extend the characterization to higher Heisenberg groups $\mathbb H^n\equiv\mathbb R^{2n+1}$.

Keywords: Burgers' equation, Heisenberg group, Carnot-Carathéodory metric, intrinsic graph
