Technology

MACHINE VISION SYSTEMS INTRODUCTION

Most advanced and up-to-date technology, based on new wheel alignment measurement principles. The system measures the desired parameters of wheel alignment angles using computer (machine) vision. Readings are taken by processing reflected radiation, which the system’s projectors emit to the vehicle’s wheels. Radiation pulses, which are reflected from the wheels, are processed by the system’s video cameras. Video cameras are built using CMOS technology. Reflected radiation processing (wheel images) allows the relative position of vehicle wheels to be calculated with high accuracy. Measurement results obtained with video cameras are processed using a Windows-operated computer.

 

OUR MACHINES

Depending on the model and purpose, a system can have two or four measuring towers. Pit or lift configurations are available; short towers with a pair of video cameras and a projector, or high columns with two pairs of cameras and two projectors each are used. Each pair of video cameras and a projector process the corresponding wheel position at the time. The system allows to receive all wheels simultaneous compensation and accurate live-data-reading.

 

SMARTLIGHT UNIQUE, CONTACTLESS WHEEL ALIGNMENT MACHINES FOR PIT OR LIFT INSTALLATIONS

Full alignment check and complete adjustment process, with toe, camber & castor angles on a user-friendly printout. No wheel adaptors or targets are attached to wheels, saving time during the process, and avoiding scratches on rims. Automatic readings in seconds. More space in front and back of an alignment bay.

Wheel Bases from 79’’ up to 154’’. Automatic rear-measuring-tower aiming. Several alignment bay configurations are available. Fast and accurate both vehicle axle readings for just one forward runout compensation roll.

A complete vehicle database of the US market..

 

FULL ALIGNMENT INSPECTION OR EXPRESS-CHECK IN SECONDS

Increase alignment bay profitability and customer loyalty with fast and accurate measurement of every vehicle. All basic alignment angles, including toe, camber & castor angles, can be taken and compared to vehicle specification in a few seconds upon automated car presence detection. Durable and accurate live readings during the adjustment procedure.

 

AUTOMATIC VEHICLE RECOGNITION

Constant tracking of vehicle wheels in the field of view of measuring system cameras. Upon detection of a car, an aligner automatically starts an alignment parameters reading. For an existing database record, a vehicle model and customer data are filled out automatically. Based on the vehicle registration record and next VIN matching *, a vehicle model and appropriate specification are selected. * service details may vary depending on the country.

 

AUTOMATIC REAR MEASURING TOWER AIMING

Increased wheelbase range of measured vehicles compared to competitors. The software automatically detects the position of the rear axle wheels, and the measuring system’s rear towers are driven by specialized servo motors to aim cameras at the vehicle’s rear wheels.

An OEM specification database for more than 60,000 vehicles, including primary angles values, tire pressure specifications, 3D animation, adjustment diagrams & drawings. The comprehensive electronic help system contains quick workflow navigation or equipment reference: alignment workflow video, software tuition video, specific vehicle adjustment information, diagrams, drawings, video and 3D animation.

Extremely fast readings refresh. The software keeps up with the cameras’ live data speed of 40 frames per second. Multiple target detection passes allow operation in extremely bright bays. The multithreaded architecture utilizes all the capabilities of modern multi-core processors. Scales correctly on every modern display, including 4K monitors. All the screens are preloaded to eliminate possible pauses while reading & adjusting. Animated 3D model of a generic car chassis. Wheel positions are pictured according to measured values of the toe, camber & caster. The adjustment mode has several views: each wheel, each axle, a general view, a geometry view, and a 2D-mode.

The software utilizes the latest version of the complete US local market vehicle MOTOR Driven™ database. The choice of a vehicle model by its VIN eliminates operator error when choosing a specification. Adjustment procedures in illustrated OEM manuals. Regular database updates are available through direct download. The software allows for adding an unlimited amount of custom specifications and exporting/importing them. The software employs all up-to-date techniques to improve the accuracy of target positions calculated in 3-dimensional space. Multiframe smoothing reduces data instability due to vibrations and lighting conditions yet swiftly reacts to any significant changes. The software automatically detects rack movement during adjustment and corrects the live values if the lift is inclined.

Two coordinate systems are supported while reading both the calibrated horizon plane and the vehicle plane. Additional jacking wheels mode for adjustment or runout compensation. 3D gauges during the procedures allow better visualization of measured wheel alignment values. Live 3D performed data. Software-generated print-outs can include 3D rendered drawings illustrating positions of wheels before and after the adjustment. An intuitive workflow that uses only four navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen.

Helpful drawings and OEM illustrations to remind the technician of procedural actions that have to be performed. The orders data is stored and can be recalled at any time. All the navigation throughout most of the program workflow can be completed using hotkeys on the remote control or the keyboard. Built-in webcam support helps in positioning the vehicle on a rack and can be set up for automatic car license plate recognition. The final print-out has a selection of one of the multiple templates and customization of advertisement massages, a company logo, etc. The application has a feature for sending automatic reports by email or text.

Barcode or QR-code reader support for automatic vehicle specification recall upon VIN reading. Specific settings set automatic step transition during measurement and adjustment procedures, reducing time and facilitating the whole process. An operator can select default modes for compensation, measurement, or adjustment and several other fine-tuning workflow settings. A statistics screen with wheel aligner productivity data is available, displaying quantity of adjustments over a given time frame, average adjustment time, etc. Tire pressure tables for most of the in-database models. A detailed, user-friendly printout with an opportunity for automatically sending reports to a customer’s phone or email address.
