Hunter Engineering Co. launched its latest vehicle service innovation, Quick Check Drive – a touchless alignment inspection system that provides instant alignment readings and requires no human involvement.
Quick Check Drive is the step up from the original Quick Check – Hunter’s vehicle inspection system that was released in 2015.
Each Quick Check Drive unit is equipped with four cameras and 16 laser sensors that scan a vehicle’s wheels as they drive past, eliminating operator labor and stopping of the vehicle. The system can scan a vehicle every 3-5 seconds, meaning no service drive back-up, making it possible to check every car that visits your shop.
The alignment inspection system is able to measure camber and total toe in seconds while providing accuracy and repeatability on every vehicle it inspects.
Quick Check Drive also incorporates a vehicle identification system to capture front and rear license plates on each vehicle. This identification system automatically provides a license plate-to-VIN conversion while simultaneously determining OEM specifications on most vehicles.
Nearly 60% of vehicles on the road are in need of alignment, and wheel alignment is the most profitable service in dealerships and service facilities, Hunter says. With Quick Check Drive, service providers can gain profits and revenue, and vehicle owners can maximize tire life by correcting misalignment.
The touchless inspection system can also feature an optional body damage camera which captures 40 or more images per vehicle without a time penalty, protecting service providers against questionable damage claims.
