The time, sweat and labor it takes to change a tire is a thing of the past, at least that’s the goal for RoboTire, the makers of an automated tire changing system. At the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week, I had a great conversation with the RoboTire team. Look for a full write-up from the conversation after the show, but for now, check out this demo of the robotic tire changing machine in action with commentary from Will Mapes, co-founder and chief operating officer at RoboTire.
In the video, Mapes explains how the tire-changing process starts in the RoboTire mobile app. Then, optical sensors are used to scan the car, and everything about the car is decoded. From here, information about the vehicle is confirmed by the user, and the job is started. The robot then takes photos to lead the machine on where to go to change the tires.
