You must align the wheel imaging camera so that the wheel image appears correctly in Genetec Patroller™.


  1. Position the AutoVu™ vehicle beside a “target” vehicle so that it is at the expected distance for tire imaging (between 1.2 - 1.8 meters / 4 - 6 feet).
  2. Acquire the live feed from the tire camera.
  3. Using the provided Allen wrench, loosen the set screws on the camera housing.
  4. There is an “Up” sticker on the camera ball which shows the camera’s vertical orientation. Rotate the camera ball so that the “Up” sticker is at the top.
  5. In the live feed, confirm that the horizon is not tilted in the image.
  6. Adjust the wheel imaging camera alignment so that the vehicle’s wheel is centered in the live feed image.
  7. Tighten the set screws to secure the camera.
