UVeye launches tyre inspection technology02 September 2019

UVeye has launched a tyre inspection system called Artemis, promising “significant enhancements” for vehicle safety and compliance.

Artemis is designed for commercial and passenger vehicles, and is being used for the first time on a bus fleet by an Israeli operator.

The system uses artificial intelligence and two scanners, which stand at each side of the vehicle as it drives through. The system recognises the tyre brand, markings and technical specification, and gathers data such as tyre condition, pressure, abrasion and scratches.

In addition, the device can compare the pressure of each tyre to the manufacturer’s standards and measurements, and report any incorrect pressure levels. The system can also provide a comparison of all the tyres to highlight any irregularities.

Amir Hever, CEO of UVeye, said: “With Artemis, we have taken another step towards building a unified platform, based on artificial intelligence, for the automated inspection of vehicles.”

The company already has contracts with manufacturers such as Volvo, Daimler, Toyota and Skoda, and says it is in discussion with more than 20 other vehicle makers and tier one suppliers.

Describing it as “the future standard of vehicle inspection”, Hever says the latest addition to its portfolio means that UVeye is able to detect vehicle defects, including scratches, oil leaks and rust, and deliver a comprehensive analysis of the tyres.
