Vehicles

 

Thermal imaging at BMW

BMW offers thermal imaging cameras for driver vision enhancement in selected models. They deliberately chose for thermal imaging, also called passive infrared, instead of active infrared.

 

Thermal imaging cameras in trucks and busses

Trucks and busses can avoid deadly accidents by using a thermal imaging camera like the FLIR Systems PathFindIR for driver vision enhancement.

Thermal imaging for military vehicles

Not only can thermal imaging camera be used for driver vision enhancement, it also increases situational awareness.

Thermal imaging: ready to conquer the world 

As thermal imaging cameras are becoming less expensive, they are being integrated in more and more products. Will there be a thermal imaging camera in every car, for every police officer, on every ship, … soon?

 

PathFindIR in mining vechicles

Avoiding accidents with mining vechicles FLIR systems PathFindIR thermal imaging cameras help to avoid sometimes deadly accidents

 

Installation of a PathFindIR® in a Porsche Cayenne

GPS systems, the most sophisticated audio systems, multimedia and many other technologies, KP Sport can seamlessly integrate it in any car. The company is not only well established in Spain, but has begun its internationalisation as well.

 

Security

 

 

Port of Calais installs thermal imaging cameras for security and surveillance

Thermal imaging cameras detect intrusions and help to comply with the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) regulations and ‘Le Touquet Treaty’.

 

 

FLIR Systems thermal imaging cameras enhance security at Turin airport 

SAGAT Turin airport in Italy recently decided to increase its security even further by installing FLIR Systems thermal imagers. The airfield lies next to a military facility and the problem had been to detect intrusion along the 9 km long perimeter fence in darkness, haze and fog.

 

Thermal imaging cameras make Copenhagen airport even safer than before

FLIR systems SR-100 thermal imaging cameras are being used to secure the Critical Part of the Security Restricted Area. Day and night, in all weather conditions.

 

Securing the G8

Thirty (30) FLIR systems thermal imaging cameras helped to assure a safe meeting of world leaders in Germany.

Diamond theft in Namibia

Diamonds are a thief's best friend FLIR systems PTZ-35x140MS and SR-100 thermal imaging camera help to prevent diamond theft in Namibia

Oubaai Golf Estate

Oubaai Golf Estate, in the heart of the famous South Garden Route FLIR systems thermal imaging cameras help to protect the perimeter

 

Major visitor attraction becomes even safer than before

It is of the utmost importance that visitors of The London Eye are safe and secure. Not only during their flight but while waiting as well.

 

Maritime

 

 

Thermal imaging cameras: a new tool for securing marinas

Thermal imaging cameras help to protect yachts and the valuable equipment they have on board.

 

Avoiding Collisions in Port and in open water

Golden Bay cement has its origins in the earliest New Zealand cement manufacturing ventures in Northland in the 1870's. Today, with an annual production capacity of 900,000 tonne, the Portland plant is New Zealands largest cement manufacturing operation. From its Portland manufacturing plant, near Whangarei, a range of cement products are shipped to markets around New Zealand and the Pacific.

 

FLIR systems Mariner on board of the Allure

Although modern yachts are equipped with radar and other equipment, there is a new tool available as well. Thermal imaging can help to protect a vessel, its passengers and crew.

 

Interview with Mr. Ferretti – Chairman of the Ferretti Group

 Mr. Ferretti talks about his experiences with a FLIR Systems thermal imaging camera on board of his personal yacht and shares his vision about the future of thermal imaging cameras on board of ships. 

Thermal imaging turns night into day

Thermal imaging cameras produce a clear image in the darkest of nights. They have numerous maritime applications and can complement other equipment such as radar. 

 

 

TECHNICAL NOTES

 

 

Cooled vs uncooled thermal imaging cameras.

FLIR Systems markets thermal imaging cameras with either a cooled or uncooled detector. Find out what is the difference and what is the best choice for your application.

 

 

Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE)

FLIR Systems has devolped a powerful algorithm that helps the user overcome the problem of finding low contract targets in high dynamic range scenes. This algorithm is called Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE). DDE is an advanced non linear image processing algorithm that preserves details in high dynamic range imagery. The article explains what DDE is and how it will help you detect targets.

 

Using thermal imaging cameras in foggy weather.

Although thermal imaging cameras can see in total darkness through light fog, light rain and snow, the distance they can see is affected by these atmospheric conditions. The article explains how and how much the range performance of a thermal imaging camera is affected by fog.

 

How far can you see with a thermal imaging camera

The distance you can see with a thermal imaging camera depends on a number of factors. The article describes which factors need to be taken into account and shows graphs on which you can clearly read how far you can see with a certain FLIR Systems thermal imaging camera.

 

Installing wipers on a thermal imaging camera

Because thermal imaging cameras can also be used in light rain, fog, snow, smoke and other extreme environments, the question often rises: "Is water or dust on the lens obstructing the vision of the thermal imaging camera? Is it necessary to install wipers before the lens of the camera so that water and dust can be removed?"
