A main sensor in AVs (Autonomous Vehicles) and modern ADAS (Advanced Driving Assist Systems) is a camera. The camera picks up movement and obstacles on the road, which can then be analyzed and used to either drive safely or avoid collisions. Foresight Automotive has been designing and developing such vision systems for over two decades.
Foresight Automotive has partnered with FLIR Systems to make their vision sensors even more reliable. FLIR Systems develops thermal vision sensors that are used by a wide variety of industries. By using Thermal by FLIR, Foresight Automotive is able to maintain the safety and reliability of their vision cameras during day, night, and all weather conditions.
Auto Trendy’s take:
FLIR is a key player in the development of thermal systems and it is a wise decision to use their technology in AV and ADAS applications for the automotive industry. This technology will help bring these systems to the market and ensure a greater safety level of autonomous vehicles.
