Automotive Thermal Imaging Night Vision System is an intelligent recognition system developed for advanced driving assistance applications and autonomous driving, which improves driving safety performance by recognizing pedestrians and vehicles and sending early warnings. There is an InfiRay® Xsafe-II Series automotive thermal imaging night vision system (M3S/M6S) equipped with a resolution of 384×288/640×512, also with advanced features including unmatched temperature measurements down to -40°C and up to +85℃, ingress protection rating can reach up to IP69K.
Automotive Thermal Imaging Night Vision System processes far infrared radiation, which minimizes non-essential information placing a greater emphasis on pedestrians and animals, and avoids "dazzle" from headlights, road lights and similar intense light sources. Moreover, drivers get from thermal night vision cameras of dangers in their way greatly improve reaction time and offer peace of mind when night driving. This opportunity to react sooner can allow a driver to avoid property damage and casualties, making night vision technologies one of the best ways to drive safer at night.
The car is equipped with an infrared night vision camera that displays an image of the road ahead to the driver. The images are picked up through infrared radiation which is invisible to the human eye. The technology grabs the "heat signature" of an object that may be in the road ahead – a deer or people, for example. Infrared night vision camera for cars offers the driver the information he or she needs allowing them time to adjust for the conditions ahead. It's also been shown that with the night vision technology in the vehicle the driver is able to "see" the darkened road ahead which could prevent accidents and injuries.
