Thermal Ranging™ is a new 3D sensor modality that uses novel AI deep learning and multi-aperture optics to extract dense range maps from radiated heat signatures without illumination.
Owl’s patented, 3D Thermal Ranger provides HD imaging and precision ranging with performance 150x the 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.
