  • 6,800 $

Investments - 5000 USD

Road surface measurement

Poor road conditions lead to:

- 1/3 of car accidents

- higher maintenance costs for road operators

Market Validation: Chief technologist at BAV Corporation: “70% of measurements are performed using a3-meter rail”

Solution:  Laser grid scanner

- automatic system

- high accuracy

- 3D surface recognition

- potholes mapping


Business Model:

1. Charge per kilometer of surface measurements

2. Distribution through partners

Target customer segment: Diagnostic divisions of road operators


2nd prototype: surface scanner

Current accuracy:

min: 20 ± 1 cm

max: 170 ± 4 cm

$15 (200 mWt semiconductor 532 nm laser) + $18 (640×480 webcam Sven IC-305) = $33

Final solution: scanning module


Target accuracy: 100.0 ± 0.5 cm

$30 (1000 mWt 532 nm laser) + $92 (1920×1080 Logitech C920) = $122
