ATEQ TPMS Tools Get a Boost With Anyline Technology
Anyline Inc.'s optical character recognition (OCR) technology will be integrated into TPMS tools from ATEQ TPMS Tools LC, allowing users to scan tire DOT codes as well as vehicle data.
The tools will have the ability to scan vehicle identification numbers (VINs) as well as license plates.
“We are very excited to join forces with Anyline to offer OCR scanning for tire and vehicle data on our devices," says Bruno Rousseau, global TPMS manager for ATEQ. "Anyline’s best-in-class mobile data capture technology helps us in our journey to bringing a complete tire service solution to our top-of-the-line ATEQ VT67 TPMS service tool. ATEQ tools have always been designed to achieve the fastest TPMS jobs turnaround in the industry. We now want to extend this to other tire services. We tested many OCR technologies for DOT, VIN and license plate recognition. In-house OCR technologies used by our competitors are inaccurate and slow. Using the ATEQ VT67 built-in, high-quality camera, and Anyline OCR technology, technicians will be able to comply with DOT registration with maximum accuracy, and optimize multiple workflows to ensure the fastest turnaround speed on the market.”
The two companies say they will officially launch their partnership during the 2021 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, set for Nov. 2-5 in Las Vegas.
“The pioneering innovation of ATEQ TPMS Tools has been the driving force of digital transformation for the automotive aftermarket,” says Christoph Braunsberger, managing director of Anyline Inc. “We are proud to partner with the number one world supplier in the TPMS field to empower technicians with instant, accurate and automated data capture technology.”
