Trucks.com recently published a joint article by Foresight Automotive and Teledyne FLIR about the advantages of thermal imaging for autonomous trucks.
Developing a sensor system for autonomous vehicles that drives safely at night, in adverse weather and low-visibility environmental conditions, including dust, is challenging. This is one of the major reasons why autonomous trucks and self-driving cars haven’t been massively adopted, despite their numerous advantages.
Infrared thermal cameras can see through dust, thus increasing vehicle safety.
Read the latest article by Foresight and Teledyne FLIR to learn how their stereoscopic thermal imaging technology can be used to improve perception in dusty driving conditions and make roadways and driving in adverse weather conditions safer for commercial autonomous trucks and other self-driving vehicles.
