Pothole tracking system investigates an application of mobile detecting and reporting the surface conditions of roads. It describes a system to monitor this important civil infrastructure using an android based smart phone. The pothole tracking system uses the inherent mobility of the participating smart phone by the citizen, opportunistically gathering data from image clicking from an android based smart phone which is GPRS enabled, and processing the data to assess road surface conditions. Using a simple geotagging technique which is a feature of android OS, it show that the authors are able to identify potholes and other severe road surface anomalies from images clicked by the citizens and uploaded by the same application on the server.
