Thermal imaging cameras can aid in your nighttime driving safety

24th Jun 2019

The National Safety Council (NSC) agrees that the most dangerous time to drive is at night. With the onset of daylight savings come every fall, drivers find that their normal commute home becomes darker and more difficult to navigate. This factor, coupled with driver symptoms such as fatigue and poor night vision, can quickly add up to dangerous driving conditions if not properly combatted.

While the NSC offers a laundry list of night driving safety tips, such as adjusting your headlights or wearing anti-reflective glasses, there are luckily other, sturdier ways of keeping your road perception at an all time high. Speedir™ has developed a line of helpful thermal camera driving companions that assist your every lane change and turn-around-the-bend.

Why are thermal cameras so beneficial? Infrared technology within these devices offer a unique way of peering into the darkness. Requiring no visible light to function, these high-performing scanners pinpoint heat signatures and translate them into images, acting as cameras. These images are then relayed to you. In short, if a deer hops into the road just outside of your headlights, your camera will catch it before you can. To learn the intimate ins-and-outs of thermal imaging, you can view our Thermal Imaging Platform page.

Once reserved for military-grade use, this tech is now broadly available for mass consumption, though Speedir™ offers a cost-effective solution to pricier models on the market. Our state-of-the-art thermal cameras have gone through a rigorous research and development lifespan, and each model is produced using proprietary tech. We offer only independently manufactured devices using self-made components.

What does this mean for the average driver? Our cameras are perfect night vision aids at a reasonable cost. To learn more about our products, please feel free to explore our website at speedir.com or contact us at info@speedir.com!
