Autonomous truck developer Plus partners with Teledyne FLIR to use thermal cameras within Plus' technology on the driverless vehicles. The thermal cameras can help drive Plus' technology forward. 

Per Businesswire

  • Plus takes a multi-modal sensor approach and currently uses lidar, cameras, and radar to provide trucks powered by its autonomous driving technology with a 360-degree view around the vehicle. While the current system offers improved safety compared to a traditional truck, thermal cameras add another layer of perception that is particularly useful for heavy trucks that traverse the country in low-visibility and high-contrast conditions.Dense Smoke ViewTeledyne
