Google patented the technology of holes detection in the road surface

Potholes in the road can be problematic even though the most comfortable vehicle, causing damage to cars in the world and can be deadly for motorcycle riders.

Google is now preparing a solution by developing technology to automatically detect holes in the road and then use this data to plan routes that provide a smooth ride.
Potholes cause millions in damage to cars and other vehicles every year. In some areas they get so bad that it can be difficult for motorists to avoid them on a road. Google hopes its new technology will allow it to provide mapping directions that help drivers to miss the worst roads. (Picture from: http://dailym.ai/1fGWpm1)
The internet giant company has filed a patent that using shock sensors along with vehicle's GPS to map the location of the holes and the uneven segment of road surface.
Google has patented technology for automatically detecting potholes and uneven surfaces on roads as cars drive over them. Sensors in the car would work with the GPS (illustrated) to send information about the road surface to a remote server, which could then be used to produce map routes that give a smoother journey.

This information is then collected by a central server and used to produce 'quality report road' before helps give direction to avoid the worst way. Such information may also be forwarded to local authorities and highways agencies to help them determine which areas need to be improved.

Google patents cited in the Daily Mail, recently explained, the signals from the sensors will be monitored by an electronic circuit of the head unit and analyzed to assess the quality of the road by a number of vertical vibrations encountered. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DAILYMAIL]
