Why ADAS And Autonomous Vehicles Need Thermal Infrared Cameras

Source: FLIR Systems, Inc - OEM Cores and Components

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.
