Leading the way in vehicle scanning.
Hailstorms, which are unpredictable local and natural events, often cause damage to vast number of motor vehicles. Insurance experts, who manually estimate surface damage on each vehicle, firstly check damaged vehicles. Detection of damage on each vehicle is tedious and slow, yet it has to be performed quickly because of vast amount of damaged vehicles during events, such as hailstorms.
Quick estimations of surface damages are generally inaccurate. Inaccurate estimations of damages lead to wrong cost prediction for insurances and also encourage repair workshops to report more damage repairs per vehicle than actual amount of damages per vehicle. Automated systems for damage detection utilize work for insurance experts by performing quicker and more objective counting of damages and prevent possible abuses due to inaccurate damage estimations.

All potential damages are tracked in videos. Tracking of damages in consecutive images is performed with software methods, which locate the most appropriate matches, e.g. nearest neighbour search with incorporation of calculation of movement of vehicle (in digital pixel units) between two consecutive images.
All detected surface damages are converted from digital pixel units to actual physical unit size and classified according to size.
