Default Hyundai patents speed bump detection technology

A boon to us if this comes sooner at an affordable cost.

Hyundai has filed a patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office for a speed bump detection system, comprising GPS, camera and multiple sensors that identify and measure an oncoming speed bump’s height, width and curvature. If the vehicle is going too fast, a warning message is sent to the driver to slow down.
According to the patent, the system specifies 30 km/h or less for bumps on standard roads measuring 3.6 metres long and 100 mm high, the same speed for bumps on local roads measuring two metres long and 75 mm high, and 10 km/h or less for bumps on housing area roads measuring one metre long and 75 mm high. It can even recognise ‘fake’ bumps (like a picture of a speed bump painted on the road) and ignore them.

Nice scoop. Hope Hyundai tests them on the unscientific humps found in this part of the world too. In India a Pot Hole detection system would be the best bet for a driver; interestingly where few university labs working on them.
I found a nice paper here on the same. (A bit off topic though)

Check this, Jaguar develops a pothole-detect-predict-share technology.
