Top automobile firm, Ford has recently stated they are experimenting new technologies that would help detect potholes and warn drivers of the spots where the potholes are located.
The innovation is being tested at the Ford’s research centre in Aachen, Germany.
One expert said altering routes to avoid potholes might not always be possible.
Uwe Hoffmann, a research engineer at Ford said "A virtual pothole map could highlight a new pothole the minute it appears and almost immediately warn other drivers that there is a hazard ahead,"
"Our cars already feature sensors that detect potholes and now we are looking at taking this to the next level."
In 2015, Jaguar Land Rover said it was working on a system to automatically gather information about potholes from cars fitted with sensors.
Nottingham Trent University has also been developing a smart system to do this.
City of York Council announced it would fit pothole detecting cameras to refuse vehicles in order to gather road surface data and better target repairs.
Some Ford models already use sensors to detect potholes and adjust the car's suspension in an effort to reduce vehicle damage.

Pothole damage affects 39% of drivers, according to an AA survey published in March last year, so with this development coming in, it would really save many cars from getting damaged easily.
Mr. Paul Kola explains how he got 50% of his revenue after investing it in this profitable platform
