Manheim Acquires Undercarriage Imaging Technology

By Staff Writer January 24, 2023

Manheim recently bought undercarriage imaging from Synthetik Applied Technologies.

“Alongside Fyusion’s best-in-class imaging, the purchase of Synthetik’s undercarriage imaging technology is an important step in Manheim’s journey to give clients the most comprehensive vehicle view in the industry,” said Grace Huang, president, Inventory Solutions at Cox Automotive. “These investments will give buyers an enhanced level of trust, consistency and transparency in vehicle conditions, enabling them to make more informed buying decisions.”

After successfully partnering with Synthetik to deploy nearly 40 undercarriage imaging devices across 26 Manheim locations and capturing over half of a million images in 2022, the company purchased the technology to further develop and integrate it with Manheim’s imaging solutions. The devices provide unobstructed high-res views of vehicles, putting even more information at clients’ fingertips while increasing efficiencies.

The devices, which are affixed to the ground, allow vehicles to be photographed simply by driving slowly over the device.

The addition of undercarriage imaging comes on the heels of other significant imaging advancements Manheim made in 2022.

“The future of vehicle imaging is now,” added Zach Hallowell, senior vice president, Manheim Digital. “As we continue to deploy our fixed imaging tunnels, the combination of undercarriage images and photos that capture virtually every angle will give clients a complete 360° exterior picture of the vehicles they want to purchase.”
