HeadLight Raises $25 Million For Photo-Based Inspection Technology

by NeoTech Post

HeadLight (formerly named Pavia Systems), a photo-based inspection technology that provides a visual source of truth about infrastructure projects, secured $25.6 million in Series B funding from Viking Global Investors.

With this investment, HeadLight will continue to expand its product and scale its operations to meet the growing demand for highly accurate and modern inspection capabilities from infrastructure construction professionals.

“Each year literally billions of dollars are wasted during infrastructure construction due to unnecessary rework, delays, and claims disputes relying on an antiquated inspection process that largely is still based on pen and paper,” said co-founder and CEO George White.

HeadLight is modernizing the inspection process – by providing photo-based data and insights from the field in real-time,” said co-founder and CEO George White. “We see this as something that should become industry-standard.”

Originally designed through collaboration efforts with infrastructure owners and their field inspection teams, HeadLight increases the accountability and effectiveness of construction projects by allowing teams to capture, interpret, and act on data from the job site in real-time. 

To date, HeadLight has captured over 2 million inspection observations on over $20 billion of infrastructure projects. The company’s current clients include transportation departments, engineering firms, contractors, and industry-related materials companies.
