  • Thermal Stereo Vision Makes Safer Cars
    Thermal Stereo Vision Makes Safer Cars

    Thermal stereo cameras are beneficial for partial autonomous systems like automatic emergency braking (AEB) by making them more reliable and safer. Not only could the thermal stereo camera theoretically tell the vehicle’s computer system to slow down upon detecting an object in the road in any lighting condition, it could also provide redundant distance data, along with the vehicle’s visible camera and radar systems, to ensure the vehicle makes the most appropriate decision for the circumstance.

  • Why ADAS And Autonomous Vehicles Need Thermal Infrared Cameras
    Why ADAS And Autonomous Vehicles Need Thermal Infrared Cameras

    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. This white paper discuses why thermal infrared cameras are a necessity for autonomous driving.
