An automatic licence plate recognition (ALPR) camera captures the vehicle registration as the vehicle approaches the ramp and all data files are saved to this registration.
Tyre scans reveal 50mm around the circumference of the tyre. This ensures grit, stones, mud or water on the tyre surface do not affect the tread depth measurements. The 3D tyre scans are communicated over Ethernet to the PC.
A software license is provided to run TreadReader™ software on the PC. The software analyses tyre scans, generates 3D scan images and calculates tread depth.
The 3D tyre scan images, tread depth measurements and operator recommendations are displayed on a PC monitor, or mirrored screen, as shown. All data is also easily imported into existing Electronic Vehicle Health Check (eVHC) software, for example eDynamix iVHC, and from September 2018, all data from Drive Over Ramps can be uploaded to TreadManager™ for improved Management of tyre sales opportunities.
