Grand prizewinner of Breakthru 2013, Total Pave, created by brothers Coady and Drew Cameron uses the technology found in today's smart phones so that civil engineers and technologists can measure and plot the condition of roads. This is a practice that many jurisdictions complete by either purchasing or renting high tech vehicles that cost upwards of $800,000. With Total Pave's novel software app, plus data collection, storage and analytical tools, including the Pavement Conditions Index and International Roughness Index, transportation departments can now find and measure the severity of road disrepair at a fraction of the cost.
Since winning Breakthru 2013, the company participated in Planet Hatch's accelerator program and is now working on the final stages of development for commercial version of their product. The company has also been successful in obtaining further development funding from the National Research Council's Industrial Research Assistance Program, which has allowed them to source the additional expertise needed to commercialize their product.
