Success Story: Crowdsourcing Pothole Repairs

The City of Boston and Innocentive recently teamed up on a challenge to develop a smartphone app that allows drivers in the city to help track and predict where potholes develop. The Street Bump app keeps track of bumps while driving, as well as their location, and passes all the data on to the city to help it address repairs quicker and more efficiently.

This video shows the efforts of one set of winning challenge Solvers, a hackspace called The Sprouts in Somerville, MA.
