Integro Technologies, a world leader in vision system integration, received official patent notification from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the Tire Guardian Series.


The patented Tire Guardian Series allows the automotive industry to use the most reliable and cost effective methods to comply with US DOT and other regulatory bodies worldwide.

The Tire Guardian reads, verifies, and documents all DOT information located on the sidewall of the tire. It also verifies the size, speed rating, manufacturer, directional arrow for directional tires, and inspects for certain tire deformities.

The Tire Guardian Series is a combination of two different machine vision applications that can be used individually or in sequence to assure tire assembly quality from the most common non-compliance issues.

Within 15 seconds, a laser light is projected across the sidewall surface of a rotating automobile tire, and a profile sensor digitizes the circumferential band that contains the DOT Code, Mold Code, E-Mark Code, and other molded-in features. The outputs are formatted into a video signal, which are transformed onto a computer screen. The digitized tire data is then analyzed by the Tire Guardian, processed, accepted/rejected and stored for each tire assembly.
