A story on WIVB-TV reports on research by Wenyao Xu, assistant professor of computer science and engineering in the UB School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, to test underground sensors that continuously monitor road conditions and could alert transportation planners and drivers to problem spots and potholes. "It can monitor the condition of the road, like the road temperature, moisture level, pressure and stress. We can predict where those potholes will be and we can fix them or even prevent the happening of those potholes," he said. A story also appeared on WGRZ-TV.
