3D Tire Tread Measurement on Vehicles with Basler ace Cameras – New Success Story
GL Messtechnik GmbH produces tire measuring systems to determine tire tread depth.
The company has developed a system that is designed for use by service garages, car dealerships and freight carriers.
The system enables 3D measurement of tread depth on vehicles and is also portable so that it can fit under any truck or car.
The very limited system height required by this feature was also one of the main difficulties that had to be mastered during the development. Normally GL Messtechnik GmbH uses compact laser sensors in its measuring technology, but those were too large for this application and thus were out of the question.
To solve the problem of the low height, GL Messtechnik GmbH chose an approach where the camera and laser sensor can be used separately. The separated camera and laser sensor are smaller than a compact laser sensor, which is used otherwise.
