Nowadays, a lot of tasks are being replaced by robots instead of humans. In a way, that is a good thing – to increase the efficiency and potentially decrease the workload from a human worker.
The same can be said for changing tires. Of course, changing tires isn’t rocket science – however, sometimes it takes a while for a service mechanic to change your tires.
If you had a robot to do the job, maybe it would have done it quickly for the whole working day without breaking a sweat.
RoboTire is meant for what you always needed – potentially faster, better, or a cheap solution to change tires.
Whether it will be a cheap service or not – we still cannot be sure but it is going to be a faster solution. According to TechCrunch‘s report, it looks like the robot can help you change a set of four tires in 10 minutes.
When compared to a human mechanic, it is obviously faster. For now, the company will work with a couple of service centers willing to use the robot and purchase it.
The approximate cost that a company using this robot would charge be around $5 to $10 per tire while the cost of the robot is around $250,000.
Even though it is an expensive solution to have right now – once implemented, it should make things easier and you would probably no longer have to wait for a long time to get your tires changed.
