VIENNA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Anyline, a global leader in mobile data collection and artificial intelligence, today launched an industry-first tire tread scanner that works on any camera-enabled smartphone or mobile device. The software solution that accurately and reliably measures tire tread depth is set to revolutionize the automotive industry. The product will be unveiled at a press conference at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas on November 2.

Measuring tire tread wear currently requires specialized 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 can cost tire dealers hundreds of millions of dollars each year and compromise driver safety.

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

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 At Anyline, we are replacing outdated manual measurements with digital data collection to make tire inspections easier, faster, and safer for drivers.”

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

“We’re excited to see what Anyline is working on next as they continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible with mobile data collection 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 industries such as retail, logistics and healthcare. By allowing users to measure and read everything with just one mobile device, the physical and digital worlds are seamlessly connected and everything becomes datafiable.
