“Digitisation has revolutionised automotive safety standards in the last decade, yet tyre maintenance has stubbornly remained in the analogue-age,” added Lukas Kinigadner, CEO and co-founder, Anyline. “The consequences are severe. According to the NHTSA, there were over 11,000 accidents on U.S. roads in the last year as a direct result of tyre failures. At Anyline, we are replacing outdated manual measurements with digital data capture to make tyre inspections easier, faster and safer for drivers.”
According to Christian Plaichner, Anyline is now looking to market its two key pieces of equipment together as well as its other scanning technologies. “The goal is really to be a full-service provider when it comes to tyres,” he explained. “I would even expand it beyond tyres to cars as a whole, because we do plates, VIN numbers and a lot of other things too.”
Anyline is following a two-pronged strategy in approaching the market, says Plaichner. Firstly, the company is following a strategy of approaching tyre service companies direct, but secondly Anyline is also working closely with the companies who are supplying the devices to the tyre distribution networks.
“We are excited for what Anyline is working on next, as they continue to push the boundaries of what can be done with mobile data capture technology,” said Tom Williams, CXO, Discount Tire.
In addition to its applications in the tyre industry, Anyline says it is ready to use its mobile measurement technology for other applications within the automotive sector, as well as other industries such as retail, logistics and healthcare. “Allowing users to measure and read anything with just a mobile device will seamlessly connect the physical and digital worlds, enabling the datafication of everything,” says the company.
