These Robots Can Change Car Tires 6 Times Faster Than A Human Mechanic

According to Victor Darofil, CEO if RoboTire, their robots can pull out or put in a set of all four tires in just 10 minutes

When it comes to technology for our everyday vehicles, what comes to most people’s minds is self-driving technology that can take the job of a human driver. However, robots can also help with other parts of maintaining a vehicle, as proved by RoboTire’s invention, a startup from the Y Combinator program.

The startup's robots can change car tires in a fraction of the time it takes a human. According to Victor Darofil, CEO if RoboTire, their invention can pull out or put in a set of all four tires in just 10 minutes. The time for a human mechanic to do the same thing is around 60 minutes, and they cannot do the task eight hours straight per day.

RoboTire has a bigger dream than just tire-changing robots. According to what they wrote on their LinkedIn site, they plan to offer full autonomous vehicle maintenance service with just software and robots. And now, they have an invention that can change car tires in just 10 minutes.

RoboTire’s vision is outright ambitious and the company reportedly collaborates with Mitsubishi’s robotics division to create an arm system for automotive outlets like dealers and service centers.

The arm now costs $250,000 and the company intends to charge $5 to $7 for each tire serviced. However, that is not the final price, when the robots are ready to operate in the real world, the price might be hiked to $10 to $15.

According to RoboTire, their machines can make $10,000 per month, meaning the owner can earn back the initial investment in two years.

The company is in talks with various well-known firms to deploy the robots at auto repair shops.
