Pioneering new solution allows customers and tire technicians to digitally measure the tread depth of their tires with the camera on their mobile device or TPMS

Anyline has launched a tread scanner that works on any phone or mobile device with a camera. An industry first, the software solution accurately measures tire tread depth and is set to revolutionize the automotive market. The product was unveiled yesterday, November 2, at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Measuring tire tread wear currently requires dedicated analog or digital tools that technicians use to physically measure each tire groove. This painfully slow and tedious process is a breeding ground for measurement inconsistencies and data entry errors that cost tire retailers hundreds of millions of dollars every year and can put driver safety at risk.

Anyline’s revolutionary tread scanner works by simply pointing the camera of any standard mobile device at the tread of the tire to be measured. Using state-of-the-art computer vision and artificial intelligence, a 3D model of each tread is created, resulting in an accurate digital measurement that can be instantly stored and shared with customers. The solution can be integrated into workforce or consumer-facing applications, meaning tire technicians and customers can start scanning tire treads without training and receive consistent, objective results .

“Digitalization has revolutionized automotive safety standards over the past decade, but tire maintenance has remained stubbornly in the analog age,” said Lukas Kinigadner, CEO and co-founder of Anyline. “The consequences are serious. According to the NHTSA, there were more than 11,000 accidents on American roads last year as a direct result of tire failures. At Anyline, we replace outdated manual measurements with digital data capture to make tire inspections easier, faster and safer for drivers. »

Anyline entered the automotive market in 2020 with the launch of a pioneering tire DOT/TIN scanner. Created in partnership with Discount Tire, the world’s largest independent tire and wheel retailer, this solution has enabled its technicians to digitally capture vital tire data in seconds, with far greater accuracy.

“We are excited about what Anyline is working on next as they continue to push the boundaries of what can be done with mobile data capture technology,” said Tom Williams, CXO, Discount Tire.

Anyline is ready to apply its mobile measurement technology to use cases in the automotive sector, as well as other sectors such as retail, logistics and healthcare. Allowing users to measure and read anything with just a mobile device will seamlessly connect the physical and digital worlds, enabling datafication of everything.
