Since 2019, CSHub's Carbin app has crowdsourced more than 600,000 miles of road quality data in dozens of countries. The developers of Carbin hope that it could change the way roads are assessed and maintained. In the video below, they explain how the app works—as well as their vision for the future of road maintenance.
