Part 2: Technical Advantages Of Thermal Cameras In ADAS And AV Platforms

Safe advanced driver assist system (ADAS) vehicles and autonomous vehicles (AV) require the use of sensors to deliver scene data adequate for the detection and classification algorithms to autonomously navigate under all conditions. This requirement cannot be adequately met with just visible cameras, sonar, and radar sensors, as they do not meet many safety concerns in real conditions. Thermal, or longwave infrared (LWIR), cameras can detect and classify pedestrians in darkness, fog, and sun glares, delivering improved situational awareness in ADAS and AV. For more information, download Part 2 of the series on the technical advantages that thermal infrared cameras deliver over other technologies for autonomous driving.
