Pithole and speed breaker detector

Hello !

I need to make a project which detects pot holes and speed breakers in night, on the road and notifies the driver few meters before he reaches the obstacle.

Kindly help me with this. I am in a 24-hrs make-a-thon, if possible link the websites or pages which maybe helpful and the detailed instructions about how to proceed it from the beginning.

Thanks!

Is having us propose solutions and do research for you cheating?

Well, in a 24 hrs Make-a-thon, we are allowed to use whatever resources available, but come up with the solution. There are no restrictions and nothing called "cheating". The problem statement is challenging enough to put you in trouble in spite of all the resources available.

Laser distance sensor angled down towards the road.
If the road is perfectly flat, the measured distance will be constant.

Any sudden increase in distance or (loss of signal) indicates a hole in the road.
Any sudden decrease in distance indicates an obstruction.
