The future of urban transportation planning and decision-making often focuses solely on vehicles, rather than efficient mobility of people. pathVu is driving innovation and collaboration to improve sidewalk infrastructure so all pedestrians can have universal access to life — without barriers.

We are putting sidewalks on the map.

pathVu is building a global database of sidewalk and pedestrian pathway data to improve the accessibility, walkability, and safety of all pedestrians- of any ability.

With our mix of innovative tools for data collection, analytics, visualization, and navigation, the pathVu platform provides everything needed to enhance pathway mobility, all in one place.

Better, faster, and more accurate sidewalk data than traditional methods.

We provide objective, high resolution data collection services to inventory and characterize sidewalk conditions. Our proprietary engineering-grade pathMet device was used to develop ASTM standard E3028 and provides a route accessibility index to quickly prioritize improvements based upon customer-specific needs.

Make better decisions on accessibility and infrastructure improvements.

With our first-of-its-kind analytics tools, cities can now see sidewalks as they never have before. By aggregating our collected data and filtering it using our proprietary algorithms, we can connect cities with the insights and visualization that lead to more cost-effective improvements in future planning, ADA compliance, and the overall livability within a community.

Navigate faster and safer without barriers.

Our pedestrian navigation and crowdsourcing app is accessible designed to provide real-time data-driven maps and directions to pedestrians. Users are routed around sidewalk hazards and alerted to obstructions in their path based on their own unique comfortability levels so all pedestrians can travel safely and independently.
