    • The Advent of SmartphonesWhat year was the 1st iPhone introduced?
    • The First iPhoneJune 28, 2007.
    • Reporting Problems with AppsGood idea, but user must…a)know about appb)have app installedc)remember about itd)use it to reportStreetBump eliminates issues c and d
    • Automating Reports using SensorsAccelerometers andDigital CompassGPSWifi and Cellular Data
    • StreetBump: a Pothole Mapping app2008• Android app• Detects Bumps over threshold• Records location on server and• Acc. Forces (3 data windows)• Orientation• Bearing• Entropy• Downloadable data• Settable parameters
    • StreetBump: Collecting Data AutomaticallyTurn it on and forget about it…(originally intended for City vehicles)
    • StreetBump: Mapping all BumpsHow can we tell if it is REALLY a pothole?
    • StreetBump: Crowdsourcing Potholes• No attempt at classification on the fly• All Bumps over threshold are recorded on server• Potholes are confirmed by REPEAT hits at same location• Potholes have “signatures” that differ from• Speed bumps• Railroad tracks• Bridge joints• Manholes… etc.• Swerving confirms presence of potholes
    • Identifying Potholes: Innocentive Challenge• $25,000 prize• 250,000 seekers• 700 solvers• 19 solutions• 3 winnersOpen algorithms forPOST-PROCESSING
