Thermal Camera Aims to Improve Vehicle Safety
Nov. 27, 2019—AdaSky's thermal camera could potentially fill in the gaps left by lidar, radar and standard camera, according to The Detroit Free Press. AdaSky is a 60-person operation based in the north of Israel.
The company says its thermal cameras passively detect heat from objects, people and animals, giving them an edge over other sensors in dark and bad weather. Other systems like the Subaru EyeSight system have stopped working in heavy rain, according to the report.
Raz Peleg, sales manager for AdaSky, said the cameras could help reduce the estimated 50,000 vehicle-deer crashes in states like Michigan every year.
AdaSky is expecting to supply its cameras to a U.S. pickup manufacturer in the next year, although Peleg declined to reveal the name.
