UVeye has launched its new Artemis tire inspection system. As well as improving the efficiency and accuracy of tire inspection, the system is said to ensure better vehicle safety and compliance.
Powered by artificial intelligence, Artemis comprises two tire scanners that are placed at the side of the vehicle. As it drives past, the system reads and recognizes the tire brand, markings and technical specification, as well as crucial safety-related data such as tire condition, pressure, abrasion and scratches.
In addition, the device is able to compare the pressure of each tire to the manufacturer’s standards and measurements, and report any incorrect pressure levels. It can even provide a comparison of all of the vehicle’s tires to determine any irregularities.
Presented with this wealth of information and a high-resolution image that highlights any faults or anomalies, technicians and fleet operators can take the necessary steps to repair or replace their vehicles’ tires.
Amir Hever, CEO of UVeye, said, “With Artemis, we have taken another step toward building a unified platform, based on artificial intelligence, for the automated inspection of vehicles. Our contracts with Toyota Tsusho, Škoda, Volvo and Daimler, as well as ongoing discussions with over 20 car manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers, are testament to the strength of our technology and how it is changing the automotive security, safety and maintenance landscape. Together with the rest of our product portfolio, Artemis is a key part in establishing the future standard of vehicle inspection.”
Artemis will be used for the first time by bus fleet operator Kavim in Israel, while many international companies and tire manufacturers have also expressed interest in using the technology.
UVeye will use the US$31m in funding raised by Toyota Tsusho, Volvo Cars and W. R. Berkley Corporation to support the deployment of the Artemis system worldwide.
