Abstract: In view of developing smart cities, all the infrastructure of the city should be integrated with intelligent system. Transportation is one of the main constraints to the development of cities. Roads maintenance is one of the key factors for transportation system. In developing countries due to the increased vehicular population the maintenance becoming a complex task. Here we propose a system which detects potholes and humps on roads and send the information to higher authorities using LoRa technology. We designed a system with three modules like user module, gateway module and cloud module. User module includes an ultrasonic sensor and Lora GPS shield which should be deployed on vehicles. Through sensor we can detect the pothole and humps on roads, Lora GPS will capture the location and the information will be sent to the gateway using Lo Ra communication. Gateway can be anywhere in the range of 15km as Lo Ra module can send the information throughout this range. This information is uploaded to cloud which will be available for higher authorities to repair and maintain the roads effectively.
