Thermal stereo cameras are beneficial for partial autonomous systems like automatic emergency braking (AEB) by making them more reliable and safer. Not only could the thermal stereo camera theoretically tell the vehicle’s computer system to slow down upon detecting an object in the road in any lighting condition, it could also provide redundant distance data, along with the vehicle’s visible camera and radar systems, to ensure the vehicle makes the most appropriate decision for the circumstance.
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 discuses why thermal infrared cameras are a necessity for autonomous driving.
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.
The FLIR starter thermal dataset enables developers to start training convolutional neural networks (CNN), empowering the automotive community to create the next generation of safer and more efficient ADAS and driverless vehicle systems using cost-effective thermal cameras from FLIR.

FLIR Systems, Inc. today announced the creation of the FLIR Thermal Imaging Regional Dataset program for machine learning advanced driver assistance development (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle (AV) systems.
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.
New infrared camera cores with high operating temperatures allow the construction of imaging systems that are smaller, lighter, and less power-hungry. That’s opening up new uses, from airborne to hand-carried applications.

Sony's Pregius global shutter CMOS technology truly fulfills its promise: crisp, clear, distortion-free images at high speeds. regius offers significant performance gains, and with its newly-announced third generation, additional on-sensor features.
Many vision systems struggle to overcome the effects of reflections and glare on reflective surfaces like glass, plastic and metal. Sony’s newest sensor technology can solve this problem with its pixel-level polarizer structure. This technology enables Sony polarized sensors to detect both the amount and angle of polarized light across a scene.

Thermal sensors are used to detect and display differences in the relative intensities of infrared energies emitted or reflected from an object. This white paper presents eight tips that every engineer should know about thermal imaging and integrating it into your next project.
Thermal imaging offers qualitative imagery with accurate temperature measurements for a variety of applications, including firefighting and security. In order to gather the most precise temperature measurements, a number of things must be kept in mind that could greatly affect thermal camera accuracy.
Radiometric temperature measurements are made with radiometric thermal cameras. This white paper discusses this non-contact, non-destructive technique (NDT) that offers advantages for many surface temperature measurement applications, as well as unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
Many types of sensors are used in Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) environments, and thermal imaging is used to benefit identifying objects, even in challenging lighting conditions. This application note covers the use and benefits of thermal imaging technologies within ADAS.
