  3. Detecting And Visualizing Hydrocarbon Gas Leaks With MWIR Cameras
    9/25/2018

    MWIR cameras capture images below the red end of the visible color spectrum at the peak absorption of emissions of hydrocarbon gases such as methane, propane, and butane, helping guarantee the safety of oil and gas industry workers, as well as protecting the environment and reducing repair costs.

  4. Electronification’s Impact On Medical Device Manufacturers
    9/24/2018

    Rising demand for electronic components -- driven by the automotive, defense, aerospace, and industrial manufacturing industries -- could create supply challenges like price volatility, counterfeiting, relabeling, selling out-of-date parts, and double- or triple-booking orders

  5. Part 4: Overcoming Technical And Logistical Automotive Integration Challenges
    9/20/2018

    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. Thermal, or longwave infrared (LWIR), cameras can detect and classify pedestrians in darkness, fog, and sun glares, and deliver improved technical and logistical integration for ADAS systems. This white paper is Part 4 of the series how thermal infrared cameras overcome technical and logistical integrations challenges in autonomous driving.

  6. Part 3: The Pathway To Affordable, Scalable Automotive Integration
    9/20/2018

    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 is Part 3 of the series on how thermal infrared cameras deliver an affordable, scalable and integrative solution over other sensor technologies for autonomous driving.

  7. Part 2: Technical Advantages Of Thermal Cameras In ADAS And AV Platforms
    9/20/2018

    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 is Part 2 of the series on the technical advantages that thermal infrared cameras deliver over other technologies for autonomous driving.

  8. Part 1: Why ADAS And Autonomous Vehicles Need Thermal Infrared Cameras
    9/20/2018

    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 for SAE automation level 5. This challenging requirement cannot be adequately met with just visible cameras, sonar, and radar sensors. As a solution, 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 is Part 1 of a series on why thermal infrared cameras are a necessity for autonomous driving.
