JAGUAR LAND ROVER ANNOUNCED TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH PROJECT TO DETECT, PREDICT AND SHARE DATA ON POTHOLES

Jaguar Land Rover was researching a new connected car technology that will allow a vehicle to identify the location and severity of potholes, broken drains and manhole covers, and then share this data in real-time via the cloud with other vehicles and with road authorities to help them prioritise repairs.

If a car can receive a warning from another vehicle about severe potholes or broken manholes ahead, then drivers would be able to slow down and avoid the danger – or the car could adjust suspension settings to reduce the impact and smooth the ride. This could help reduce the potential for punctures, wheel and vehicle damage as well as road accidents.
