Ravin AI, a provider of automated artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for vehicle inspections across the fleet, rental, used car, and insurance industries, announced in a statement that its AI technology is being piloted by Hertz in Sweden and Norway in an effort to improve inspection efficiency, objectivity, and standardization across the company's operations.
"We've tested different technologies that focus on automation and vehicle inspection, and Ravin AI has proven to be a very competent system in the inspection scope," said Daniel Edman, project lead at Hertz Sweden in the statement. "We are very excited and hope to be able to roll out this new technology for our customers in the future."
Ravin AI's technology produces a condition report, more reliable than the human eye, that can be generated in seconds, saving customers the hassle of the slow and painful process of a manual vehicle inspection. Ravin's AI vehicle inspection tool leverages mobile phone cameras, as well as CCTV footage, to create a highly accurate 360 scan of a vehicle, using deep learning algorithms and car model data to assess its condition.
"We're delighted to be partnering with a leading, forward-thinking brand like Hertz," added Neil Alliston, EVP commercial at Ravin AI. "Vehicle inspections are a critical part of the car rental operational life-cycle, and Ravin's tools will bring cutting edge technology to support multiple inspection points through that journey."
