Pothole Predictor

CHANNEL 5, AGAWAM, MA - Some Bay State high school students are on the brink of a technological breakthrough -- they're developing a device that is sure to make millions of commuters happy. The device is an odd combination of metal work, tubes and wires controlled by a video game-like joystick. . . The Agawam High School Robotics Club [has] devised the pothole predictor. Using money from an Massachusetts Institute of Technology grant they created a machine that can find hollow places under pavement, drill in and fill them. In other words, stop potholes before they form. The students are testing it now on a strip of road outside the school and they may try it on city streets next month.
