Anyline Inc. has unveiled its new Tire Sidewall Scanner that captures information on a tire sidewall with a single photo.
With the Anyline Tire Sidewall Scanner, users open the camera on their smartphones to take a photo of any passenger tire. The scanner captures analog tire information including tire size, department of transportation/tire indentification number, tire make and model, and converts it into digital data.
According to Anyling officials, the scanner removes the possibility of human error and helps the tire industry “revolutionize online tire retail.”
Every image is sent and processed using Anyline Cloud API - a simple application that enables you to scan elements from uploaded images.
“Our Tire Sidewall Scanner is a perfect fit for e-commerce, where 72% of drivers do not know much about their tires, resulting in 29% or more being hesitant to buy tires online,” says Lukas Kinigadner, CEO and co-founder of Anyline.
“Every tire e-commerce platform needs tire size or vehicle information to provide accurate product recommendations, but the average person often doesn’t know where to find this information, which can contribute to 20%+ return rates for tire retailers. Everyone, however, knows how to take a photo of a tire with their phone, and taking a picture of a tire is much easier and more accurate than finding the tire size and typing it into a box.”
