Europcar Mobility Group has partnered with a Tchek, a tech start-up that has developed an automated inspection system.
The drive-thru device uses artificial intelligence and 3D scanning to capture images of and detect damage on vehicles.
Europcar Mobility Group will begin the digitalisation and automation of check-in check-out inspections of its traditional rental model. But, ultimately, the project will also include new mobility solutions, with a view to improving overall operational efficiency, which may require more maintenance and repair than conventional vehicles.
“The integration of a digital and autonomous solution into a customer journey is a subject that can be complex and we are very happy to have removed this thorn from the side of the leaders and managers on the company.
“We are very proud to have Europcar Mobility Group as the first major partner of the industry because we share in the vision; to always save time and profitability for users and employees by combining technological know-how with irreproachable customer service,” said Léa Chevry, co-founder of Tchek.
Tchek Scan is the first autonomous scanner in the world which increases productivity by automating and mechanising the inspection of the entire vehicle with great precision, thanks to 3D reconstruction, image capture and the rapid analysis of new repairs to be carried out by artificial intelligence.
