FLIR brings thermal imaging
to vehicles with Automotive
FLIR Systems’ (Wilsonville, OR, USA; www.flir.com) new Automotive Development Kit (ADK), which is based on the company’s Boson
thermal imaging camera core, is designed for the development of next-generation automotive thermal vision and advanced driver assistance
Thermal imagers are already integrated on vehicles from GM (Detroit,
MI, USA; www.gm.com), Mercedes (Stuttgart, Germany; www.mercedes.
com), Audi (Ingolstadt, Germany; www.audi.com) and BMW (Munich,
Germany; www.bmx.com), and enable the capture of images well beyond a
car’s high beams, noted FLIR.
With the new ADK, FLIR’s Boson
thermal core will enable the testing, development, and potential integration of a thermal imaging system in a vehicle, and will do so quickly and easy, according to the company.
Boson is an IP67-rated thermal sensor that measures just 21 x 21 x
26.7 mm, with the whole ADK measuring 38 x 38 x 42.5 mm. The thermal array is a 320 x 256 uncooled VOx microbolometer detector with a
12 µm pixel pitch. Featuring a spectral band of 8 – 14 µm, the camera
can acquire images at up to 30 fps. FLIR’s new ADK is plug-and-play,
and its thermal data ports directly into analytics over standard USB connection, or through an optional NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA, USA; www.
nvidia.com) DRIVE PX 2 connection.
Additionally, the ADK can be added to ADAS to complement existing sensors and features a detection range of >100 m, a 24° or 34° field
of view, and features three different hardware configurations.
delivers on all three,” said James Cummings,
To be accurate, the sensors have to consider a number of factors that
may contribute to unreliable numbers, such as eliminating kid counts,
which Brickstream does by using a height setting . The sensors also feature evice management software tools, which enables sensor monitoring and troubleshooting, as well as traffic count audits.
Ryski suggests not to jump right into anything new, when it comes
to using new technologies, and instead, use something that is proven to
provide accurate and reliable data.
“I’d advise all retailers to start with a solid foundation of store traffic
and conversion analytics first before spending time and resources on
more speculative analytic efforts.”
