ADASTEC has selected FLIR thermal cameras to be included on the recently debuted flowride.ai automation platform. Designed to operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year, including through ever-changing weather conditions, the flowride.ai platform requires the need for thermal cameras to help in the decision making process while on the road.

In combination with a suite of other sensor modalities, thermal cameras help create a safe autonomous vehicle system for mixed traffic environments, where other vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians are sharing the same roadway.

In conjunction with the development of autonomous passenger vehicles, OEMs and innovators are also working on public transport vehicles as part of the larger push to develop an autonomous vehicle ecosystem. One company making strides in the public transportation autonomous space is ADASTEC and it recently debuted flowride.ai, the world’s first level-four, full-size, full-speed autonomous bus platform.

The flowride.ai automation platform is designed to operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year, including through ever-changing weather conditions, requiring the need for thermal cameras from Teledyne FLIR. In combination with a suite of other sensor modalities, thermal cameras help create a safe autonomous vehicle system for mixed traffic environments, where other vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians are sharing the same roadway.

ADASTEC integrated thermal cameras with the primary focus on improving detection and safety of all vulnerable road users on or near the road and at bus stops. Furthermore, thermal cameras are a key sensor technology to more readily distinguish and classify pedestrians who are partially obscured by nearby vehicles and other common roadway and urban objects.
