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.

Thermal Vision for Autonomous Vehicle Applications

  • See Clearly, Even in Challenging Lighting Conditions

    Thermal sensors create images from heat, not light, so they can detect pedestrians and oncoming vehicles regardless of lighting conditions.

  • Next-Generation Thermal Vision is Plug-and-Play Easy

    Start collecting thermal data in minutes.

  • Simple Interface Ports Data Directly into Analytics

    Easy set-up, operation, and integration.
