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.  Continue Reading..
Why HOT MWIR Might Be A Better Fit than Uncooled LWIR
Why HOT MWIR Might Be A Better Fit Than Uncooled LWIR
While cooled mid-wave infrared (MWIR) cameras have long held a tactical advantage over uncooled longwave infrared (LWIR) cameras, they also have been more mechanically complex, larger, heavier, more power-hungry, and more costly than uncooled LWIR cameras.   Continue Reading..
