UVeye, in collaboration with Connexion Mobility and General Motors, has announced plans to simplify the GM dealer loaner fleet inspection process through the use of UVeye’s AI-powered systems. The new AI-powered inspection systems will be available at more than 4,000 General Motors dealers. The announcement was made during the recent 2024 National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA).
The UVeye systems are capable of scanning a passenger vehicle front to back to locate and identify potential issues. The system includes three main components, such as Helios, which scans the vehicle underbody to detect things like frame damage, missing parts, fluid leaks, and exhaust issues; Artemis, which inspects the tires to identify the tire brand, technical specs, air pressure, tread depth, and sidewall damage; and Atlas / Atlas Lite, which scans the vehicle body to identify scratches, dents, and other body issues.
UVeye systems are already in use at hundreds of General Motors dealers in the U.S., and now, the systems are poised to improve the accuracy and efficiency of loaner fleet vehicle inspections, substantially reducing the visual walkaround time and potentially saving dealer time per vehicle while offering customers quicker service. Customers are also provided transparent damage documentation via SMS.
“This is a significant announcement for General Motors dealers,” said Executive Director, General Motors Customer Care and Aftersales, David Marsh. “The integration of OnTRAC and UVeye will not only streamline the loaner fleet process but also enhance the overall customer experience.”
UVeye states that General Motors is the first global OEM to integrate automatic inspection into its loaner vehicle process.

Back in December, UVeye announced a new partnership with Hypertec to drive mass production of the UVeye vehicle inspection system. Production of the UVeye systems will take place in Plainfield, Indiana, and Montreal, Canada. UVeye has also developed partnerships with CarMax, Volvo, and Amazon.
