Automatic pothole reporter
Potholes are one of the most common paving problems. They can not only damage vehicles but are also considered a serious road hazard. mchampio has posted an Instructables about building a NodeMCU based pothole reporter that records the locations of the potholes encountered during driving and later notifies the concerned authority. The location of the potholes are captured using a GPS module. Every time a pothole is encountered, the driver needs to press a push button to record its location. It can be further automated by installing an accelerometer for detecting the potholes.
