Abstract: Nowadays maintenance of road is major problem in developing countries. Major portion of country’s economy is put up for well maintenance of roads. Here the detection of pothole and bumps is done which will be useful to government authorities to maintain the road condition. Also it helps the drivers to get aware about potholes and bumps & suggest the alternate route which are without potholes and bumps using the ultrasonic sensor and GPS sensor in the smart phone. The data collected using sensor is sent to the cloud storage and heat map is generated. This would be very useful to the government bodies for maintenance purpose as well as for driver safety point of view. For displaying the road condition the android application and web application is developed and according to the data the alternate route would be suggested to driver.
