Leo Burnett India has announced the launch of ‘StreetEye’ — a motorcycle-mounted device that can help map potholes in real time, potentially saving thousands of bikers from accidents and mishaps.

Owing to heavy traffic and waterlogging, Indian roads are riddled with potholes, making these a serious menace for commuters. And this problem becomes even more acute during monsoons as waterlogging causes thousands of potholes to become invisible overnight, making them extremely dangerous for two-wheeler riders. The team at Leo Burnett has been researching and working towards finding a solution that will help address this problem.

StreetEye can detect submerged potholes in real time using light-detecting stereo cameras. StreetEye has been designed and developed by Leo Burnett and sponsored by Acko.
