A system and method are disclosed that automatically captures and reports real world data from autonomous/automated vehicles. The system includes sensors such as camera, GPS, microphone, accelerometer etc. that provide real-world tracking features in an automobile. The system may report the data to a reporting station to act on the reported data for a wide variety of applications. Cameras may detect billboards on a given route, which may provide information on ad impressions in the real world to ad buyers. The system might detect a pothole and relay its location, dimensions etc. to local authority who may take action to remove the hazard. The system may report a collision between other vehicles to ensure that emergency responders are notified. The system for automated capturing and reporting of real world data from autonomous/automated vehicles may provide feedback to businesses about the reach of their advertising or improve road safety.
