Secures $2.7M to Set Industry Standard for Civil Engineering Data Capture Secures $2.7M to Set Industry Standard for Civil Engineering Data Capture, a leader in innovative solutions for civil engineering, announced today that it has raised $2.7M in seed funding from MassVentures, LaunchCapital, and RiverPark Ventures. This funding will be used to grow the company and advance its mission to revolutionize how civil engineers manage the built environment.

Cyvl’s vehicle-mounted LiDAR sensors and proprietary data processing algorithms provide a unique solution to the challenges faced by civil engineers when it comes to managing physical infrastructure assets like pavements, signage, trees, and more. By capturing high-resolution 3D data of the built environment, Cyvl’s technology enables engineers to make more informed and accurate decisions, ultimately leading to improved construction processes and outcomes.

Infrastructure Data Created by Cyvl's Solutions

Founded by four WPI alumni, Cyvl launched its product at the beginning of 2022 and quickly captured the attention of civil engineers and governments. Within months of launching, their technology was used to assess more than 4,000 miles of transportation infrastructure throughout New England.

“The team is excited for this next chapter as we work to transform the civil engineering industry,” said CEO and Co-Founder of Cyvl, Daniel Pelaez. “This funding will enable us to continue developing our technology and expanding our team, so that we can better serve the needs of civil engineers and help them build a better, safer, and more sustainable built environment.”
