BanaLogic’s affordable Vehicle Damage Detection Systems with LED lighting and license plate recognition

Designed for dealerships, repair centers, car rental locations, and parking garages to automatically document pre-existing vehicle damage.

BanaLogic, automotive inspection specialists, has released a new vehicle intake and damage detection system called BODYGUARD. Specifically designed for dealerships, repair centers, car rental locations, and parking garages, it captures hundreds of images including license plate data in mere seconds as a vehicle enters and/or exits the designated lane.

Our customers were asking for a solution to document and augment their vehicle intake and return process that did more than just capture images. After much research, we discovered that systems were either lacking in capability or so cost prohibitive that it would be less expensive to simply absorb and write off any claims. For BODYGUARD, we leveraged technology used in our FASTLIGN laser alignment drive through lanes to capture license plate data and trigger bright LED illumination, combined with high resolution cameras strategically

Earlier today, I wrote about a fictional ’80s-era EV on a television show and how it had a remote locking system that featured, comically, a telescoping antenna. Because our commenters are composed of the world’s most elite group of painful car geeks, I was soon informed that even in our boring old reality, there were remote key fobs in the early 1980s, and they required no ridiculous antennae. And the first car to feature such an innovation was one I’d not expected, and this realization affected me so much that I’m writing about it right now.

The car was the 1983 Renault Fuego (starting in late 1982), and the innovation was remote locking.
