Thermal Vision Automotive Development Kit (ADK)

  • The FLIR ADK™ offers a cost-effective approach to development of next generation automotive thermal vision for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles (AV).
  • Thermal infrared cameras are the best sensor technology for pedestrian detection, reliably classifying people in cluttered environments and giving analytics the critical information needed for automated decision making.
  • FLIR thermal imagers are proven and have helped drivers see well beyond their high beams for more than a decade – day, night, through most fog, smoke and haze, and past the glare of oncoming headlights or the sun low on the horizon.
  • The ADK’s rugged, IP67-rated enclosure incorporates a heated window for all-weather driving and the Boson™ thermal sensor is a fraction of the size of current night vision systems.
  • With USB, GMSL, Ethernet, and FPD-Link interfaces, installation is plug and-play easy.
  • The thermal data stream easily ports into existing host platforms for recording, processing, and analytics.
  • Multiple field of view configurations are available to meet various integration needs and different operational design domains.
