Is there anyone who hasn’t noticed the vast number of potholes in the roads? Help may be on its way. Ford engineers at the research centre in Aachen, Germany, are creating a virtual pothole map to warn drivers of hazards ahead. On board sensors could adjust the car’s suspension to help reduce potential damage. So, no chance of repairs actually being effected! We shall all have to drive extra carefully – or walk to our group meetings. Sylvia Mountford.
