As automakers develop autonomous vehicles, they need sensors to tell the car's computer what's around it. Thermal sensors, which can see through glare, fog, and darkness, are an important part of the mix.
Thermal sensors are used to detect and display differences in the relative intensities of infrared energies emitted or reflected from an object. In order to add thermal imaging sensor technologies to an application, there are a few things to consider for ensuring each requirement is met. This white paper presents eight tips that every engineer should know about thermal imaging and integrating it into your next project.
Thermal imaging offers qualitative imagery with accurate temperature measurements for a variety of applications, including firefighting and security. In order to gather the most precise temperature measurements, a number of things must be kept in mind that could greatly affect thermal camera accuracy.
Radiometric temperature measurements are made with radiometric thermal cameras. This white paper discusses this non-contact, non-destructive technique (NDT) that offers advantages for many surface temperature measurement applications, as well as unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
Many types of sensors are used in Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) environments, and thermal imaging is used to benefit identifying objects, even in challenging lighting conditions. This application note covers the use and benefits of thermal imaging technologies within ADAS.
Many times, system integrators and camera system designers are asked to add pan/tilt capabilities to an existing sensor. There many factors to consider with this challenge, especially since this addition can have a large impact on the system cost, reliability, and performance.
More people are becoming aware of the uses of thermal imaging, especially in the cases where the technology has saved lives. This article presents many different emerging applications for miniature thermal imaging cameras and the advantages that they can provide.
BMW has integrated night vision systems in order to detect living objects that are not illuminated in total darkness.
