Thermal Vision Automotive Development Kit (ADK): FLIR ADK™

Source: FLIR Systems, Inc - OEM Cores and Components

The FLIR ADK™ is a new thermal vision automotive development kit (ADK) built around the FLIR Boson® thermal camera core. This kit offers a cost effective solution for developing the next generation of automotive thermal vision and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The system creates images from heat, making this technology the best for pedestrian detection, identifying people in cluttered environments, and giving analytics critical information for automated decisions.

The ADK’s rugged, IP67-rated 12-µm thermal sensor is a fraction of the size of current systems, installation is plug-and-play, and driving with the system is easy. Simple interface ports channel data directly into the analytics for easy set-up, operation, and integration.

Additional FLIR ADK features include:

  • Pixel Pitch: 12 µm
  • Spectral Band: 8-14 microns (LWIR)
  • Thermal Sensitivity: < 50 mK
  • Array format: 320 x 240
  • Frame Rate: Full Frame (30 & 60 Hz selectable), 9 Hz optional
  • Power Consumption: 580 mW
