Anyline Partners with Treads to Simplify Car Ownership

Anyline has partnered with Treads, an AI-driven car management subscription service, to enhance analytics for car owners.

Anyline, a mobile data capture and analytics company, has formed a partnership with Treads, an AI-driven car management subscription service. This collaboration aims to enhance the Treads mobile app with advanced data capture and analytic features for car owners.

Treads, launched in May 2021, focuses on simplifying car ownership. It operates in 21 major U.S. markets, serving over 4,000 customers. The company offers subscriptions for various car maintenance services, including tires, oil changes, alignments and wiper blades, alongside a full auto insurance marketplace. With its expansion, Treads sought a method for car owners to independently verify tire tread depth. This need led to the partnership with Anyline and the integration of the Anyline Tread Depth Scanner into the Treads app. The addition of this technology aims to protect car owners from unforeseen expenses and reduce the overall cost of vehicle ownership.

“Anyline’s Tread Depth Scanner is cutting-edge technology that no one else has delivered to the market in a reliable way,” said Zach Olson, CEO of Treads.

He attributed the company’s rapid growth to its AI technology-first approach and described the partnership with Anyline as a natural progression that enhances its technology offerings.

The Anyline Tread Depth Scanner employs advanced AI and computer vision to accurately measure tire tread depth using any mobile device. This tool can be integrated into both workforce and consumer-facing apps through an API. With this technology, Treads aims to ensure that its customers are always driving on safe tires.

Lukas Kinigadner, CEO and co-founder of Anyline, expressed his excitement in partnering with Treads, noting that Treads’ subscription model aligns well with Anyline’s goals. He emphasized the partnership’s role in driving innovation and enhancing safety in the automotive industry.

The Anyline Tread Depth Scanner is currently available on Treads’ mobile app for both iOS and Android users. In the coming months, Anyline and Treads plan to deploy more automotive scanning tools.

Connected Vehicles Need the Right to Repair

A fleet of connected vehicles delivers many benefits to society and the motoring public, but critical technical decisions need to be made.


A modern vehicle is a powerful computer on wheels with dozens of interconnected modules, sensors and controllers. The technology works together to deliver the cleanest, safest and most fuel-efficient form of transportation ever. Automotive engineers have long dreamed of connecting these advanced vehicles to one another (V2V) and to roadside infrastructure (V2I). When vehicles can sense and communicate with one another, accidents can be avoided, traffic flow and speed can be smoothed, emergency vehicle response times can be improved and more. With these same vehicles connected to other devices such as traffic signals, pedestrians with mobile phones and other infrastructure (V2X – vehicle to everything), safety goes up and fuel consumption goes down. A fleet of connected vehicles delivers many benefits to society and the motoring public. Early examples of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are deployed in the US and around the world. Billions of dollars have been allocated in the United States to deploy ITS on hundreds of miles of roadways and in municipal pilot sites in Tampa, Arizona, Utah and Michigan.
