All competing products were assessed by a jury comprising Christopher Crookes of Extra Dimensions; John Ellmore of the RMI; David Furlonger of the Times Media Group; Robert Houdet of NAACAM; Norman Lamprecht of NAAMSA and Jakkie Olivier of the RMI. “The overall quality of entries was high,” said Wynter Murdoch, convener of the Innovation Awards.
“It was heartening, also, to see such a diversity of items in contention from different spectrums of the automotive industry”, said Wynter Murdoch, convener of the Innovation Awards. He adds:
“In the eyes of the jury, Car-O-Liner’s Vision2 Software – which was launched at the show – exemplified a state-of-the-art means of quickly and efficiently measuring collision damaged vehicles, helping to reduce cycle times and aiding accurate, efficient and safe alignment work throughout the repair process.”
The software won a gold medal last year at the Innovation Awards at Automechanika Frankfurt. The photo-based Vision2 software, which guides repair and performs automatic centring, measuring and documentation, is easy and quick to use, cutting the time it takes to complete repair measurements by as much as 20%.
