CTRL Technology Used to Battle Odometer Fraud

On June 6, 2012, CTRL made a presentation to the National Odometer and Title Fraud Enforcement Association (NOTFEA). The presentation showcased the German-made Tacho Spy which uses CTRL’s ultrasound technology to determine engine wear.

 
PRLog - Jul. 5, 2012 - WESMINSTER, Md. -- The National Odometer and Title Fraud Enforcement Association (NOTFEA) invited CTRL to give a presentation to its members on the topic of using ultrasound to detect odometer fraud. Michael Schmutzenhofer, of Germany, demonstrated how CTRL's UL101 and SoundCTRL are used to capture engine data to upload to his proprietary database. This technology could help buyers and sellers alike determine if an engine is in normal condition with respect to the odometer, providing valuable data for decision-makers.

NOFTEA was formed in 1980 to protect consumers from costly odometer and title fraud crimes. With active members in every state, the Association meets once a year, to share new ideas, training and investigative methods, new criminal trends and case prosecution at the State and Federal level. The purpose of NOTFEA is to deter odometer, rebuilt/salvage, and other title fraud. Presenters at this year's four day conference (June 4-7, 2012) included members of Wisconsin DOT, US Secret Service, NHTSA, and NICB.

With odometer fraud at epidemic levels in many European countries, a reliable way to indicate engine wear is a much needed endeavor. As merely an automotive enthusiast, Michael Schmutzenhofer began compiling a database of engine readings using CTRL ultrasound technology. He quickly realized that this database could help verify mileage of an automobile based on the engine wear detected by CTRL's ultrasound technology. Michael named his database combined with the UL101 and SoundCTRL hardware, the Tacho Spy.

The Tacho Spy is relied upon by many dealers and buyers throughout Germany and has expanded into several other countries in Europe. CTRL is currently working with Michael to capture US domestic automobiles, as well. Even with the limited number of engines in the domestic database, the Tacho Spy is able to indicate abnormal wear and engine abuse, as well as normal wear and tear.
