3.7.2022 | General Motors is using AI to speed up the vehicle inspection process
General Motors is bringing artificial intelligence into the vehicle inspection process.
The automaker is making an undisclosed “strategic investment” in Israeli startup UVeye, which makes vehicle diagnostic systems that use sensors and AI to quickly identify damaged parts or maintenance issues. The investment in UVeye was made by GM Ventures, the automaker’s venture fund, which also has investments in a variety of other AI-themed startups.
As part of the collaboration, GM will sell UVeye’s technology to its dealer network to upgrade their vehicle inspection systems. (The company’s systems are already being trialed at a small number of GM dealerships across the country.) GM will also work with UVeye on a variety of vehicle inspection technology projects involving used car auctions, fleet operations, and automotive dealership sales.
