What is SmartRoadSense?

SmartRoadSense is a crowd-sensing system that continuously monitors road quality.

The system makes use of accelerometers and global positioning sensors of modern smartphones in order to detect and classify the roughness of roads. Data is collected and processed on device, and is then transmitted anonymously to the back-end system that maps and aggregates information of multiple users in order to produce an interactive, almost real-time, map of road quality.

Data thus produces is available online in the form of an interactive map and Open Data.
