1:15 PM Leveraging Thermal Imaging to Improve ADAS for all Road Conditions

While existing Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) systems rely on radar and visible-light cameras to detect pedestrians; glare and fog make such detection and road safety far more difficult to achieve. Join the conversation between Mike Walters, Vice President Product Management Thermal and Machine Vision Cameras for FLIR, and Greg Brannon, Director, Automotive Engineering and Industry Relations for AAA National to learn about:

  • How FLIR expanded on the AAA testing and developed a fused thermal/visible/Radar AEB demo system
  • Discussion on the push for regulatory testing standards that accurately represent real driving conditions
