Developing an Android Based Learning Application for Pothole Detection

Authors(2) :-Sangita Gujar, Ayubkhan N.Mulani

In this paper we are going to develop a Smart Phone application on the android platform that will detect potholes on the roads while the user is driving and Report the location to location Authorities for maintenance. This is a platform that assists, through Android cell phones and tablets, the mobility of users of learning virtual environments. Mobile application development is the process by which applications are developed for hand held devices such as personal digital assistants, enterprise digital assistants or mobile phones. These Applications are either pre-installed on phones during manufacture, or downloaded by customers from app stores and other mobile software distribution platforms. When the user starts their journey, they launch the application on their phone and set it to record. The application launches the accelerometer and Network Location Provider (NLP) in the phone. The application monitors for changes in acceleration. When such a change is recorded, the application calls the NLP and asks for the coordinates of the pothole. The application then adds the time, the geographic coordinates and the severity of the pothole to the event log. When the user finishes their journey they press stop and are presented with the event log.
