Every day millions of commuters use the metros of Delhi. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) sees to it that they all arrive to their destination on time. In order to keep the metro network up and running at all times, DMRC uses FLIR thermal imaging cameras.
"The use of a thermal imaging camera has helped us a lot during the development of our solar car. Without the use of a thermal imaging camera we would not have known for sure if some parts are working in the way as we thought they were working," says De Wit. The use of a thermal imaging camera is not only a valuable technological addition in the development phase of the solar car, but also during the race.
Sky-Watch designs and manufactures quad-rotor UAVs for military, law enforcement, security, firefighting, and search and rescue applications. Based in Denmark, Sky-Watch has integrated a FLIR Quark 640 longwave infrared thermal sensor into their Huginn X1 drone to give customers a thermal vision option.
Conditioned based monitoring using FLIR infrared cameras has become a standard for the European and African operation of Transocean Inc. Last year the company provided each of its rigs with their own FLIR camera and now as a result of the merger between Transocean and GlobalSantaFe Corporation, this technology is being investigated for implementation on the remaining legacy GSF rigs, to ensure standardisation of equipment across the region's combined fleet.
