This thermal camera is developed specifically to assist drivers in driving under dark environment or adverse weather or driving condition. Due to the nature of the thermal camera, a driver can see even in the complete darkness during night. Especially in countryside where there’s no street light, a driver can see the road ahead, even farther than a head light can illuminate. Not only in dark situation, but also in adverse weather condition such as fog or heavy rain/snow, a driver can have clear visibility with this camera. Even in brightly lit city street or suburban situation, the headlight approaching a driver can hamper the driver’s visibility, thus resulting in crash. But this thermal camera can capture objects, especially human, located behind the light. The thermal camera is especially advantageous in detecting human or animals, thus help a driver to avoid fatal crash.
Dali’s thermal camera has quite a few characteristics superior to competition in the market. First of all, it has the highest resolution in its class at 384x288. Second, it has a single body solution, whereas a competing product needs a separate image processor. Third, it has built in anti-shake function. Fourth, a built in image recognition system detects human automatically, giving warning signs for the driver to heed. And the image from the camera is very stable. IP67, hermetically sealed case protects the camera from various environment. In addition to these, the camera has a thermalized lens to provide clear view across the whole focal range.
The camera can be installed in passenger cars, trucks, bus, and any other transportation vehicles. This camera should be an essential safety tool for trucks or buses, which frequently run over night across a long distance. The standard video output is PAL but can be converted to NTSC too.
