How do Thermal Cameras Make ADAS and AV Safer?
The Governors Highway Safety Association states the number of pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. has grown substantially faster than all other traffic deaths in recent years. Pedestrians are especially at risk after dark when 75% of the 5,987 U.S. pedestrian fatalities occurred in 2016. ADAS and autonomous vehicles (AV) face these same challenges. Thermal, or longwave infrared (LWIR), cameras can be integrated for testing in minutes and reliably classify pedestrians in darkness where they see 4x farther than headlights, through most fog, and are unaffected by sun glare, delivering improved situational awareness that results in more robust, reliable, and safe ADAS and AV.
- Why do ADAS and AV need thermal cameras?
- What performance gaps in the ADAS and AV sensor suite are filled by a thermal camera?
- What is the best approach to integrate a thermal camera and immediately collect data?
- Are thermal cameras too expensive for mass ADAS and AV deployment?
