Abstract

Many roads across the United States are in poor condition, which can lead to unnecessary accidents and repair costs. In order to alleviate these problems, our group built a second generation road roughness detector that could identify these troubled roads. With the aid of GPS and a mapping program, city officials would now be able to keep track of the condition of their roads. Through examining the first generation design and researching applicable topics, we created a more compact product that was easy to use.
