Road Hump Records...

308 users have liked.

As said in another post, I tried to create a road hump record using my basic andriod phone which just costed me 6.7k. I just mentioned cost to tell how valuable a phone can be, if it can be used constructively. 

The road humps are plotted in google maps, real time.. Also data can be saved in internet.

Now you can see a Google map of 1.8 kms sample from BDA complex to SilkBoard

If some Prajas come up to help, most of main roads can be hump-mapped to help ourselves and then automatically others..

and thus increasing our wgwwd index (what is that?)...


Your thoughts?

A nice comparison is available at SmartProbe.Org. Many Roads from Japana, USA and other countries. Our own Mumbai also seen there. Bangalore has currently less data. I have added few roads. Do your bit ;)

On lighter note : This is should be as smooth as silk(board) :)

Just create a page in Praja with following html code !

@srinidhi - Good start

Thanks, and thats how it starts. It is an app for kind of survey as per app author's page. For example we can use the app to showcase the severity of humps and compare with another road.

Sad to know its uninstalled, but you gave a good try. Something is better than nothing :-D

Wov..Another road hump data added

154 users have liked.

Good !

Another Praja(most probably)  has joined hands.

New Road hump map here.

Road covered is from Vidyaranyapura to MG Road via Mathikere-Sanky Tank-Palace Grounds-High Grounds-Raj Bhavan-Indian Express.

Road seems to be pretty bumpy...But cant comment unless we have comparative data.

Maximum hump height : 17cm ! (Near HAL)

Deepest pothole : 10cm ! (xxx)

And Max Jerk: 0.79 ( At Mathikere) . What does that mean? Click here for technical paper)


Note: Type of vehicle also matters ;)
