Bendix launches updated brake pad identification app

  • Posted on Thursday 13th, July 2017.

Braking technology specialist, Bendix, has launched an advanced image recognition app that takes the guesswork out of specifying replacement brake pads.

The smartphone app makes the process as simple as possible, requiring just a photograph of the brake pad to return a result with the replacement part number and technical data.

According to Bendix, the app can recognise more than 2,000 different Bendix brake pads and return a result with 95 per cent accuracy in seconds, depending on the internet connection. 

The first of its kind in Australia, Bendix says the core of the breakthrough app is a newly developed algorithm based on an innovative extraction technique that minimises processing time and the amount of data stored.

“This breakthrough technology is a first for Australia and is available now for downloading,” said Bendix Marketing Manager Ian Bott.

“It’s even more accurate and faster than the original award winning app launched in 2014, saving valuable time in workshops throughout Australia."
