BRIDGETON, Mo. — Hunter Engineering Co. has developed a "touchless" version of its Quick Check vehicle inspection system that provides alignment and other readings in a matter of seconds with no human interaction necessary.
The revised system, called Quick Check Drive, uses four cameras and 16 laser sensors that scan a vehicle's wheels as the vehicle drives past them, measuring camber and total toe in seconds while providing "unmatched" accuracy and repeatability on every vehicle it inspects.
The system replaces the drive-over optical scanner, allowing the process to be sped up to scanning a vehicle every three to five seconds, making it possible for a shop with the system to check every car that visits, Hunter said.
As such, the Quick Check Drive is not able to provide a tire tread analysis, the company said.
