Anyline Inc. has released its Tire & Vehicle Analytics platform, which provides actionable insights for automotive service providers, fleet operators and original equipment manufacturers.
The Tire & Vehicle Analytics scans the tire sidewall, tire tread, vehicle identification number, license plate, driver’s license and odometers, which can be tracked, analyzed and correlated with external data sources.
Christian Plaichner, chief product officer for Anyline, says the platform can be used on any mobile device with a camera and last year the company collected 1.2 billion scans of vehicle data with the Tires & Vehicle Analytics, he says.
The platform can also be used for fleets to “minimize downtime” and allows fleet owners to be more predictive and stop those preventable injuries, he says.
“Digitally collecting data from vehicles and tires provides huge value for individuals, auto retailers, service centers and fleet managers,” says Lukas Kinigadner, CEO and co-founder of Anyline.
Anyline Tire & Vehicle Analytics also helps alert tire dealers to recalls or required maintenance to protect the service provider.
The analytics platform also provides a wealth of information about tires. By comparing the wear of various tire brands across different vehicles and geographies, recommendations can be made about the optimal choice of tire for any set of circumstances.
For fleet companies, this information can be used to assess driver performance and accurately predict when tires will need retreading or reinflation in order to improve fuel efficiency and ensure legal compliance.
