New inspection experience – Intelligent fast diagnosis system: Flex Inspect

Flex Inspect is an intelligent fast vehicle diagnosis system which leverages vehicular networking technology to consolidate a series of diagnosis services into one system. As soon as a car is parked in the repair station, the system immediately begins a detailed and comprehensive diagnosis, including its tire pressure, battery health, tire tread depth and other items. Meanwhile, the Bosch FWA 9000 non-contact four-wheel alignment system performs fast diagnosis and correction of the car. In four minutes, a comprehensive diagnosis report will be ready to give the owner an intuitive understanding of the car’s conditions. If weak battery health or serious tire wear is detected, the system will alert the owner whether or not replacement is recommended. This intelligent, fast vehicle diagnosis system will start its pilot run in Bosch Car Service Beijing workshop this April.
