ATEQ TPMS Tools, LC, and Anyline, a mobile data capture technology company, announced a partnership that will propel the TPMS industry forward with state-of-the-art data capturing technology.
Anyline’s advanced optical character recognition (OCR) solutions for the automotive aftermarket will be integrated into ATEQ’s TPMS tools, enabling technicians to instantly scan tire DOT codes, as well as vehicle identification numbers (VIN) and license plates.
The automotive aftermarket industry has seen tremendous growth in technology over the past 10 years. Due to vehicle technology advancements, tool manufacturers have needed a faster, more accurate way to keep up with market demands. In collaboration with Anyline, ATEQ will be able to deliver the highest quality TPMS tools for the aftermarket.
“We are very excited to join forces with Anyline to offer OCR scanning for tire and vehicle data on our devices. Anyline’s best-in-class mobile data capture technology helps us in our journey to bring a complete tire service solution to our top-of-the-line ATEQ VT67 TPMS service tool,” said Bruno Rousseau, Global TPMS Manager. “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.”
