New technologies and materials are utilized by the automobile manufacturers to prevent and treat corrosion on vehicles. Vehicle owners can choose a variety of after-market anti-rust products to protect their vehicles from corrosion, such as spray-on rust inhibitor and anti-rust coating. A metric for measuring the corrosion on vehicle is required to effectively benchmark the extent of corrosion, as well as the effectiveness corrosion treatment products. This research develops a metric to measure the corrosion on vehicles and model the corrosion condition against variables such as vehicle age and rust–proofing treatment history.
