Remote Control, Pothole, Controller, Robotic Vehicle

Identifying and repairing potholes on the roads is labour intensive and expensive. It typically requires three or four people to do the monotonous job in difficult environments. So this is a great opportunity for a type of robotic technology to be introduced for the same. This robotic project aims to develop a remote controlled vehicle which can be used to help fill the potholes and sunken trenches on the roads. The robotic vehicle will consist of scanners mounted on it to identify the road surface features and determine whether an object is a hole, bump, manhole cover or crack and send necessary feedback signals to the controller on the vehicle. Any anomalies will be cleaned with high pressure air or vacuum. After identifying the cracks on the surface a set of pipes will carry the necessary filling material to repair and patch the cracks. Again the quality of repair will be scanned. The vehicle will be designed to be an all-terrain vehicle which can move through difficult surfaces and protective coverings will be provided to keep the controller and other important circuit connections safe. Safe execution of road construction using this robotic vehicle technology will contribute to the improvement of productivity and quality of work by removing workers from cumbersome, repetitive, and often hazardous environments.
