Road infrastructure is a sector prone to degradation, where technology is seldom used. Every year, important investments are made in building and maintaining the infrastructure, which has to support an increasing number of cars on the road.
We have developed an iOS and Android app that maps the potholes in the road, using the accelerometer in the smartphones and a proprietary algorithm that calculate the intensity of the oscillations generated by the potholes.
Results and Benefits
Within weeks from launch, Gropometru app was downloaded by more than 10,000 users, which combined have mapped more than 200,000 potholes on the Romanian roads. Currently, Gropometru is aiming to become a system for monitoring road infrastructure.
