Success stories

Real solutions for real business challenges

Enhanced visual inspection data for infrastructure longevity

An AI-infused cloud-based platform equipped with proprietary machine-learning and computer-vision algorithms. Rapida uses cutting-edge technology to measure, predict, and ensure the structural health of aging or newly-built infrastructure and utility assets.

Pools, reservoirs, dams, bridges, tunnels, terminals, and cooling towers all benefit from Rapida’s enhanced automation of workflows and intelligent integration of visual inspection data.

Road2 connected Rapida to their first clients which now include Mekorot, Israel Electric and Shafir in addition to other infrastructure companies.

The spray paint revolution

Painting the future with renewable energy

A revolutionary concept for practical, cost-effective renewable energy, SolOr’s nano-paint technology turns common surfaces into independent solar energy harvesting systems. After being sprayed with SolOr’s nano-paint, everyday surface areas such as buildings, cars, parking lots, and even food carts can harness a similar amount of solar energy as costly, bulky, solar panels.

With Road2’s help, from concept to development, SolOr received access to a beta site, resources, funding, strategic help, and guidance from the advisory board members of a leading Israeli paint and construction product company.

The only one-tap fueling app

TankU presents cutting-edge outdoor retail solutions for optimizing operations, user experience, customer acquisition, and loyalty. TankU offers 3 services:

  • TUFuel- Vision-based mobile payment that replaces existing authorization processes with fast, secure, and cost-effective technology.
  • TUFleet -The only mobile payment solution that meets the high-security level required by fleets, provides advanced reporting, and eliminates fuel fraud.
  • TU Analyze – Cutting-edge data mining and AI technology that create tailor-made reports to maximize resources and increase profitability.

Using vision-based technology, TankU software recognizes both the driver and the vehicle allowing for one-tap payment, staff reduction, the centralization of expense tracking data in one location (great for fleets), and the elimination of payment terminals.

By providing access to our NVIDIA DGX A100 supercomputer and our skilled engineers, Road2 led TankU to the development of the technology needed for its innovative software. Road2 also exposed TankU to its network of investors, setting them up for success.


Large volume vehicle tracking without human intervention.

SpinFrame Technologies provides a centralized system for tracking a vehicle’s status at every point along the supply chain, without the need for any human intervention. From maritime ports to large transportation & logistic hubs, parking lots, dealerships, rental branches, and service centers with SpinFrame’s technology, it is now possible to monitor large volumes of vehicles in an automated manner.

This innovative approach has revolutionized the vehicle inspection process, ensuring that vehicles are thoroughly documented, reducing the risk of human error, and increasing efficiency.

With the help of Road2, SpinFrame Technologies partnered with Point.AI’s annotation services to develop their technology for identifying and documenting visual damage on vehicles. This collaboration allowed SpinFrame to bring their platform to market and make a strong business impact on a vertical with a clear need for their technology.
