Thermal Vision Automotive Development Kit (ADK)

The FLIR ADK™ is a cost-effective way to develop the next generation of 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. The ADK’s rugged, IP67 rated enclosure incorporates a heated window for all-weather driving. With the GMSL and USB interfaces, installation is plug-and-play easy.
