Potholes have caused serious problems such as flat tire, wheel damage, and impact on the lower part of a vehicle. To address the problems, diverse sensors have been employed to automatically detect potholes. An accelerometer detects potholes by recognizing certain signal patterns. It can be implemented at low cost with simple detection algorithms, but it shows wrong detection results with certain objects on the roads such as manholes and speed bumps. Laser scanners can detect correct pothole size and location. However, the sensor is not suitable for pothole detection owing to their high cost and low scalability. Recently, a pothole detection system using a video camera have been proposed. It can detect potholes at low cost and with high accuracy. In this paper, we introduce a pothole detection system based on video data using Android smartphone. A smartphone is suitable device for pothole detection because it has video cameras, processing units, network systems, and GPS. Experimental results show that our system has high detection accuracy.
