DRB Holdings LLC (DRB), provider of technology-enabled devices and software solutions to the car wash industry, has announced the acquisition of the assets and intellectual property of NoPileups LLC (NPU).

NPU’s advanced software leverages breakthrough computer vision and machine learning technology to assist in preventing vehicle collisions in car washes by constantly monitoring car wash tunnels and stopping the conveyor when collision threats are detected. In addition, NPU enables higher tunnel throughput by reducing the risk of collision generated by more closely stacking vehicles.

DRB has formed a strategic partnership with Pingman Tools LLC and its CEO, Pete Ness, developers of the technology. “Our entire team looks forward to taking NPU to the next level with DRB,” said Ness.

“This investment reflects our continued and unyielding commitment to provide the market-leading set of solutions for car wash operators,” said Bill Morgenstern, CEO of DRB.
