What does the community think about this application idea?

I would like to see Automatic begin using an accelerometer in the device to calculate potholes and rough roads? These data could be used for route avoidance, to minimize wear on the car, or to improve brake pad performance... perhaps even more applications.

Any input?

Hello there Sebastian and welcome to the Automatic community :) Potholes can definitely wreak havoc on one's vehicle, and this is a clever use of the accelerometer. Thanks for the idea, and I'll share it with the team.

Hi Sebastian. This was discussed by the team earlier today, and while we're not planning to add this feature, we all thought it was a really cool idea.

Thanks again for the suggestion!
