A Future With Safer Roads: Automatic Wheel Lug Nut Detection Using Machine Learning at the Edge

By Evan Rust and Zin Thein Kyaw

Wheel lug nuts are such a tiny part of the overall automobile assembly that they’re easy to overlook, but yet serve a critical function in the safe operation of an automobile. In fact, it is not safe to drive even with one lug nut missing. A single missing lug nut will cause increased pressure on the wheel, in turn causing damage to the wheel bearings, studs, and make the other lug nuts fall off.
