The car that can detect potholes

10 June 2015 Last updated at 11:09 BST

Researchers at Jaguar Land Rover’s advanced testing facility in Coventry have developed a car which can detect potholes in the road as it is driven.

Sensors in the car, spot and log potholes and broken manhole covers and then send the data in real-time to the cloud to create a database which could be made available to drivers and local authorities.
