Abstract: In country like India, Pothole detection is very important. Potholes on Indian roads are dry or water filled. Vehicle travelers choose best road to reach their destination. Due to pothole on roads many accidents take place. For avoiding accidents and traffic, there are lot of techniques are being used. This paper proposes pothole detection by using Google map and Blynk application. In this approach, Arduino Uno recognizes the pothole and maps on to the Google map. Blynk application is used to get desired output. This setup contain ultrasonic sensor and force sensing resistor. Ultrasonic sensor measures distance of the object by sound wave. Force sensing resistor is used to identify the presence of pothole. When the vehicle is forced to jerk then pressure sensor value goes to high and at the same time ultrasonic sensor value is checked. When the pressure sensor value is high and ultrasonic sensor is remains stable then it is identified as pothole. This information is send to the user end and pothole is plotted over the desired location.
