FLIR Systems Australia introduces a new range of thermal night vision cameras designed to detect hazards and alert drivers operating vehicles in the dark.
FLIR’s all-new PathFindIR II thermal night vision system uses FLIR’s latest night time video analytics algorithms to provide automated detection of pedestrians, animals and objects, enabling drivers to see hazards sooner, react faster, and stay safer on the road at night.
PathFindIR II’s thermal night vision camera allows drivers to see various road hazards at night from up to four times farther away than with just the vehicle’s headlights.
FLIR’s PathFindIR II thermal night vision cameras build on the success of the original PathFindIR with the addition of a unique night time pedestrian detection feature that can be configured to automatically display alarms, alerting drivers when the system detects a person nearing or crossing the vehicle’s path.
FLIR’s PathFindIR II thermal night vision camera is ideal for installation in passenger vehicles, trucks and various industrial vehicles including police, fire, and other first responder vehicles, which can give operators the ability to see through smoke, find victims and suspects at night, or guide hoses onto fires in all conditions. The thermal cameras are also recommended for mining vehicles such as haul trucks and shovel and scoop vehicles so that they can be operated safely and efficiently in dark and dusty conditions without endangering people.
FLIR CEO Andrew Teich describes the PathFindIR II as the world’s ‘Sixth Sense’, and says that the thermal camera can help make driving safer and more enjoyable regardless of the vehicle being driven, giving the driver expanded awareness of what’s going on around them.
Featured on select models of Mercedes, Audi, and BMW automobiles, FLIR’s thermal night vision technology has made thousands of drivers safer all around the world.
