A single photo converts all analog tire sidewall information into digital data and assists in identifying and tracking tires for inventories
Vienna—Anyline has introduced a new tire sidewall scanner that captures all the information on a tire sidewall with one photo. The product intends to improve online tire retail, which has lagged behind other e-commerce sectors due in part to the lack of knowledge that customers have about their tires. Additionally, it will help businesses identify and track tires for inventory management and warehousing.
With Anyline Tire Sidewall Scanner, users open the camera on their smartphone to take a photo of the sidewall of any passenger tire. Anyline instantly captures analog tire information—DOT/TIN, tire size, tire make and model—and converts it into digital data.
By harnessing Anyline’s more than 10 years of experience in computer vision and machine learning, the scanner removes the possibility of human error and is five times faster than recording the information manually. Every image is sent and processed using Anyline Cloud API, giving organizations the flexibility to capture data via app, website, chatbot or messaging service.
Anyline Tire Sidewall Scanner is also applicable for tire inventory management and tire hotels as it helps to optimize workflows by digitizing analog tire information. The software can be integrated into handheld devices or fixed mounted camera systems.
Anyline has already launched a number of mobile data capture solutions for capturing tire and vehicle data which are used by Europcar, Discount Tire, Cox Automotive and TireHub.
