Generally maintenance of roads is one of the major problems in developing countries. Well maintained roads may contribute a major section to the country's economy. Identification of pavement distress such as potholes and humps not only helps drivers to avoid accidents or vehicle damages, but also helps authorities to maintain roads [1]. The idea behind this implementation of project is to propose a cost-effective solution to identify the potholes and humps on roads and provide timely alerts to drivers to avoid accidents or vehicle damages. Ultrasonic sensors (HC-SR04) are used to identify the potholes and humps and also to measure their depth and height respectively. The proposed system captures the geographical location coordinates of the Pathole and hum using a global positioning system(GPS) receiver and it is processed by AUDUINO UNO(At mega 328P) microcontroller. The sensed data includes Pathole depth, height of hump, and geographical information of corresponding hump and Pathole. The entire data is to be stored in the database which serves a valuable source of information to the government authorities and vehicle drivers. An android application is used to alert drivers so that precautionary measures can be taken to avoid accidents. Alerts are given in the form of flash messages with an audio beep by using Global System for Mobile (GSM) to the government authorities and drivers. The proposed approach is an economical solution for detection of dreadful potholes and uneven humps, as it uses low cost ultrasonic sensors.
