Thermal Ranging is a novel 3D sensor modality that uses proprietary AI deep learning and foveal optics to extract dense range maps from radiated heat signatures without illumination.
The most determinant variable in the autonomous market will always be safety. Manufacturers will continuously be tasked with determining which technology solutions most effectively mitigate liability risks and cost for safe operation.
Owl’s patented, 3D Thermal Ranger™ provides HD imaging and precision ranging representing a 150x improvement in resolution and cloud density of LiDAR. It operates day & night, in all weather, definitively classifies; pedestrians, cyclists, animals and vehicles, all the while calculating position, direction and speed to unlock safe autonomous and semi-autonomous operation.
Owl’s solutions deliver panoramic thermal imaging and dense range maps superior to active LiDAR or RADAR. Unlike cumbersome stereo approaches, a single 3D Thermal Ranger delivers range throughout the entire field of view (FOV) and is immune to vehicle vibration for reliable and robust mapping.
