Almost every today's Smartphone is integrated with many useful sensors. The sensors are originally designed to make the Smartphones user interface and applications more convenient and appealing. These sensors are potentially useful for many other applications in different fields. Using Smartphone sensors to estimate road smoothness condition may be also possible, since many similar sensors are already in use in many sophisticated road smoothness profilers. This paper explores the use of data, collected by sensors from Smartphones under practical settings in which the Smartphones are placed at more realistic locations and under realistic manner inside a moving vehicle, to evaluate its relationship with the actual road pavement smoothness.
