The patent application (Publication Number: US20240035817A1) describes a tire inspection apparatus and system that includes a data acquisition unit, a user operation acknowledgment unit, and a display processing unit. The data acquisition unit acquires data for groove depth of a tire mounted on a vehicle from a groove depth measurement instrument. The user operation acknowledgment unit acknowledges user input indicating whether an uneven wear is identified in the tire, and the display processing unit provides a schematic diagram corresponding to the identified uneven wear. The user can select the type of uneven wear from the schematic diagram, which includes options such as center wear, feather edge wear, heel and toe wear, and shoulder wear.

Furthermore, the tire inspection system includes a tire management server apparatus with a storage unit for storing axle arrangement information and an information processing unit. The system also comprises a tire inspection apparatus with a vehicle information acquisition unit, a data acquisition unit, a user operation acknowledgment unit, and a display processing unit. The data acquisition unit acquires data for groove depth based on the axle arrangement information, and the user can input whether an uneven wear is identified. The system provides a schematic diagram for the identified uneven wear, allowing the user to select the type of wear. This system is particularly useful for vehicles operated under the management of a transport company, ensuring efficient tire inspection and maintenance based on axle arrangement information.
