What Automotive Engineers and Developers Need to Know About Thermal Imaging

FLIR produces the only automotive-qualified thermal camera that is in cars today. Through Tier 1 automotive supplier Veoneer, more than 500,000 cars have reliable night vision with pedestrian and animal detection. FLIR thermal cameras complement the ADAS and AV sensor suite. They provide the ability to reliably classify objects in the dark and through obscurants including smoke, sun glare, most fog – day and night. Because they see heat, they have a unique ability to reliably classify people and animals better than other ADAS and AV sensor technologies. Including thermal cameras in the suite of sensors increases the situational awareness, reliability, and safety.
