An Android mobile application is developed as a prototype to detect speed breakers/potholes and voice alert the driver prior to reaching the speed breaker/pothole using IoT and analytics. Through mobile application, accelerometer sensor and GPS sensor data are collected. The collected sensor data is further processed in order to detect speed breakers/potholes. Further processing is done based on the GPS coordinates collected to voice alert the user a few seconds prior to reaching the speed breaker or the pothole which in turn helps the driver in avoiding the accidents. The information collected from the registered user is shared and then stored, processed, and analyzed in a Cloud. The alert message from the system warns the users of the smart city. This also helps as a tool for authorities to immediately to attend to any repairs.
