Pothole information from the cloud
The goal of JLR’s project is enabling the vehicles to identify location and severity not only of potholes but likewise of broken drains and manhole covers. The data then are shared in rea-time with other vehicles and with road authorities to help them prioritise their repairs. The system uses mobile radio technology for the communication, not the WiFi derivative IEEE 802.11p, also known as DSRC. For research purposes, the company has equipped a Range Rover Evoque with the sensors, cameras and data processing gear.
