For individuals who want to report, avoid, or even correct potholes found on roadways, the Pothole Pal is an interactive mobile application that records the locations of potholes. Information is tracked in real-time as the car travels, using GPS tracking technology and an accelerometer. Each occurrence of a hazard will be pinged on a map and saved. This data will be displayed to the user in the form of an easy-to-read map. The app will be sure to not confuse dips and bumps with erratic driving. Unlike similar applications where potholes are reported manually, our product provides far more functionality and is practical for everyone. It encourages people to contribute, creating a safer, more efficient drive for all. Motorists will be able to locate potholes ahead of time. Governments will be able to see infrastructure issues and resolve them accordingly.
