Tamworth-based company Instarmac is using Intertraffic Amsterdam to highlight its participation in a European project to create a fully-automated pothole machine.

Hole In One is half way through two-year research project, developing a machine to automatically fix pot holes without the need for humans to be directly involved.

“Where we come from is the material side,” Export Manager Matt Kinson told Smart Highways editor Paul Hutton in an interview you can hear below, “the key element is speed… and safety from the point of not having people on the roads when the traffic’s flowing.  If you’ve got a machine that can do that, it reduces an awful lot of risk.”

You can read more about the project here and listen to Paul’s interview with Matt and his colleague Angus Longward here.

Instarmac are at stand EL.401.
