Driver Vision Enhancement (DVE) With SWIR Cameras
There are many current DVE systems that use passive thermal imaging systems to enhance a driver’s viewing capabilities while operating in darkness, fog, smoke, dust, etc. SWIR has emerged as a leading technology that meets the needs of DVE.
Laser Applications In the Automotive Industry Demand Peak Performance Of Laser Measurement Instruments
The automotive industry is a demanding sector in which craftsmanship, precision and quality are indispensable.One wrong step can lead to catastrophic failures in a production line, where everything already works in harmony to obtain optimal results.
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.
Why ADAS And Autonomous Vehicles Need Thermal Infrared Cameras
Safe advanced driver assist system (ADAS) vehicles and autonomous vehicles (AV) require sensors to deliver scene data adequate for the detection and classification algorithms to autonomously navigate under all conditions.
Four Reasons Thermal Cameras Can Improve Automatic Emergency Braking And Save Lives
The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) estimates 6,200 pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents in the U.S. in 2018, the highest total since 1990. The GHSA also found that, during the past 10 years, nighttime crashes accounted for more than 90 percent of the increase in pedestrian deaths.
