Plot-Hole's goal is to streamline the governmental pothole detection and reporting process. Targeting local municipalities, the system aims to reduce overall costs for pothole repairs while keeping roads safer for drivers and cyclists. Plot-Hole detects potholes via a deep learning and ultrasound system. Detected potholes are uploaded a database that connects to a live mapping system. The hardware detection system mounts to street sweepers and other city vehicles, allowing for detection via vehicles that would already be traversing residential streets, commercial districts, and side streets.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
