Brake manufacturer Bendix has launched a free smart phone app that can visually identify a brake pad based on a photo.

The Bendix Brake Pad Identifier App is available on both Android and Apple phones

The Bendix Brake Pad Identifier app aims to make it easier to find replacement brake pads by giving you the reference code of your current brake pad within a few seconds.

To use the app you would enter the make and model of the car, as well as the length of the brake pad. From there you take a photo of the brake pad on a white background, of which a white piece of A4 paper will suffice.

Using similar technology to the facial recognition software found on most modern cameras, the app now has enough information to match up the appropriate brake reference from its database.

Additionally, Bendix say that this database will be continuously updated over time as new models appear.

"By just taking a few steps the Bendix Brake Pad Identifier will automatically identify the brake pad in your workshop allowing an unprecedented level of customer service in speed and accuracy," Bendix Marketing Services Manager Ian Bott says.

A version of the Bendix Brake Pad Identifier app can be found on both the Android and iPhone app stores.
