Tire Tread SDK for Android - Overview



To use the Anyline Tire Tread SDK on Android you will need a device that meets only three requirements:

  • Android 8.0 - Oreo - or newer (API level 26+)

  • Decent camera functionality (recommended: ≥ 720p and adequate auto focus)

  • Stable internet connection

Although not required, a device with 'Flash' capability is highly recommended.


Your development/application environment is required to have at least the following tools and versions (or newer) available:

  • JDK 17

  • Gradle 8.1.0

    • id 'com.android.application' version '8.1.0' apply false

  • Kotlin 1.9.0

    • id 'org.jetbrains.kotlin.android' version '1.9.0' apply false

  • compileSdk 34

    • android { compileSdk 34 …​

  • minSdk 26

    • …​ minSdk 26 …​

  • Compose Compiler 1.5.0

    • …​ composeOptions { kotlinCompilerExtensionVersion = "1.5.0" } …​


At minimum, implementing the Anyline Tire Tread SDK will require two steps:

1. Anyline Tire Tread SDK initialization

The function AnylineTireTreadSdk.init is responsible for initializing the Anyline Tire Tread SDK with your License Key. It needs to be called only once, and before running any other Anyline Tire Tread SDK-related tasks.

2. TireTreadScanView implementation

The TireTreadScanView is an UI element which extends the android.view.ViewGroup, thus it can be directly placed in your Layout along with other views.

This view handles the camera access and provides functions for you to start and end the scan process, as well as the "distance information" to guide the scan process.
