Application of Remote Sensing and GIS for Road Monitoring

Authors(2) :-Digambar R. Ghayal, Dr. Karbhari V. Kale

Smartphones have turned into a chief piece of human advancement. Expanding ubiquity, registering fitness, and accessibility of various sensors have opened better approaches to use these brilliant gadgets. Notwithstanding cell phones and tablets, another critical part of current society is the street organize. Since countless utilizations streets consistently, crumbling remains an issue in numerous spots. Securing of data without contacting the real protest is viewed as the meaning of remote sensing .We manage the cell phone to catch the awful surface directions utilizing the GIS geolocations idea for the Aurangabad city. The point of this paper is to give a calculation to street surface quality identification and a gadget application for accelerometer information gathering. As accelerometer contains the worldwide x, y, z co-ordinates with GIS geolocations to catch the present area from where we ought to consistently watch pathway and once the speeding up information of the z-axis increments with the indicated threshold value. We bring up this as a pothole in transit and store that information real time to the database. The algorithm utilizes accelerometer information, gathered from various streets thinking about the use of Aurangabad city, with a specific end goal to prepare a classifier for road surface quality location. The accelerometer information is gathered with the previously mentioned Android application, which is created due to this paper. The general aftereffect of this paper is a proof of thought that can be utilized to recognize, classify and order the surface nature of roads that are classified into three streets.
