MIT students developing pothole technology

LANSING, Mich (WILX) -- While we wait in anticipation for potholes to get fixed, new technology is looking to ensure that if you do hit one, the ride will go a whole lot smoother.

A group of former MIT classmates brainstormed the idea six years ago and have been working on their project since then.

The technology is called "Clearmotion."

It involves sensors that actively work to protect your car when it encounters a pothole.

Clearmotion even remembers where potholes are and notifies officials of where repairs need to be done.

The new technology will soon be an option on new vehicles.
