Odometer Reading Automation

Automated odometer reader is a deep learning program based on analyzing of car dashboard images taken by smartphones to monitor car mileage that can be implemented into various types of products, usually including web or mobile applications. 

Main benefits

Better customer experience

Instead of typing the odometer mileage manually, all the customer needs to do is to just take a photo.

Cutting operational costs

Do your staff write in the mileage value manually or at least do some random check-ups to make sure that the data you received is correct? Now you can put an end to this. 

Improved data quality

You can improve your data by making sure that both the photo you receive is of enough quality and also that the mileage value that gets into your database is correct

Fraud prevention

On the first level, you can make sure that the user of your product is submitting you the correct value. On the second level, we can make sure that the user of your product has submitted the odometer photo from the right car. Contact us to hear more about this “magic” feature.

How it works

Take a photo with your mobile phone and submit it via mobile or web app.

Our algorithm at first determines if the photo quality is good enough and secondly, reads the value of odometer mileage.
It gives back the odometer mileage value and does with it whatever is needed (shows it to the user, stores it into your database etc.) It also performs other image analyses that can be used for fraud prevention.
