India has one of the densest road networks in the world. Traffic data from 2019 suggests that 4,775 road accidents were caused by pot-holes, resulting in 2,140 deaths. So a device that can be mounted on a two-wheeler and alerts motorists of pot-holes well in time, has the potential to save thousands of lives and even prevent injuries to two-wheeler users.
