3D Thermal Imaging for Night Vision is a hot topic with the soon to be announced NHTSA mandate for pedestrian safety. Automotive OEMs and Tier 1’s are searching for sensors that work in complete darkness, bright light, rain, snow and fog to eliminate pedestrian fatalities and make their cars the safest in the world.
Owl’s immersive LWIR thermal imagine experience will be showing thermal solutions in action at CES in Las Vegas. See for yourself how LWIR thermal imaging, combined with computer vision for classification and ranging, can identify living objects better than any other sensing modality.
Combining Owl’s new HD thermal camera technology with their AI software will enable cars to not only see warm creatures (pedestrians, bicyclists, and large animals) ahead in the road, but to also identify what they are, then to tell the driver to slow down or stop, and if the driver doesn’t respond quick enough, enable the car to automatically slow down or stop.
Currently being reviewed and tested by the world’s leading car makers, this new automotive safety technology can see and identify warm objects in total darkness, up to 200 yards ahead.
