12 Considerations For Thermal Infrared Camera Lens Selection
There are many factors to be considered when developing a solution that requires a thermal imager or infrared (IR) camera, such as the application, waveband requirement, minimum resolution, pixel size, and the ability to scale production. An element that will impact many of these considerations is the IR camera lens. This white paper offers 12 considerations when selecting the optimal lens for a thermal imaging solution.
Thermal Stereo Vision Makes Safer Cars
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.
