Automated vehicle-inspection-system provider UVeye is launched a new way to detect costly vehicle problems that often are missed by drivers and service technicians.
According to the company, high-speed inspection systems can reduce repair costs and keep fleet vehicles on the road, while helping to eliminate potential accidents, avoid costly downtime and improve overall vehicle safety.
UVeye's vehicle scans use artificial intelligence, sensor fusion and high-tech camera systems to spot within seconds a wide range of issues ranging from worn tires to missing or defective underbody parts. The company's high-speed systems are much faster and more accurate than traditional service-lane inspections and help fleet operators correct problems before they can lead to much more costly repairs and downtime.
A recent survey of UVeye customers showed that automated inspections can identify 96% of existing vehicle defects compared to just 24% for manual inspections, according to a company release.
UVeye offers three high-speed vehicle-inspection systems that are suited for a variety of fleets, including "final-mile" delivery vans and trucks, as well as private, police, medical, rental, public transit, food delivery, school bus, taxi, and municipal fleets.
The rapid drive-through systems include:
- Helios – An underbody scanner that detects a wide variety of problems including frame damage, missing parts and fluid leaks, as well as brake and exhaust-system issues.
- Artemis – A system that checks tire quality. Within seconds it identifies tire brand, technical specifications, air pressure, tread depth, sidewall damage and whether or not a vehicle's tires are mismatched.
- Atlas – A 360-degree detection system that checks sheet metal and other external body components such as bumpers, door locks, grilles and windows.
