Abstract: Many people die each year in car accidents because of damaged tyres. There are some techniques that have been suggested during the years to detect such tyres. In this paper, we suggest a new technique for detecting damaged tyres employing a standard digital camera that produces JPEG images. The camera takes pictures of the tyre and if the image size is too large, the tyre is deemed to be with a damage and dangerous for use. In such a case an automatic system will draw the driver attention to the tyre condition before a severe accident may happen. The system was checked on many tyres and has high accuracy of damage detection.
