Smart Box is a project that allows the collection of road roughness (measured in IRI) and displays it on a mobile map application.
The Problem: Pavement roughness is a significant indicator of driver satisfaction. Rough pavement offers an uncomfortable and unsafe driving experience and increases fuel consumption and emission levels.
Our Solution: Ensemble a smart box that collects sensor data and calculates the IRI. Develop a mobile application that displays a map overlay of the road with different colors based on IRI values.
- The Smartbox takes in raw data from GPS sensors and accelerometer sensors.
- The server takes in this data through the app and processes it to store it in the database.
- The server sends trips (selectable by the app) that get displayed on the Google Maps API.
- The app can also start and end recording.
