Improving on Automotive Design & Engineering with Thermal Imaging

The automobile industry invests more in research and development than any other industry with the aim to produce safe and efficient high-performance vehicles. Whether they’re investigating new designs or testing new additive manufacturing techniques for car parts, researchers are relying on high resolution thermal imaging to gather the visuals and data they need.

Validate Design Decisions with Thermal Data

The ability to bring reliable new models faster to the market is one of the key factors of success in the automobile industry. Thermal imaging—especially with high-speed cameras—can help automotive engineers improve the designs of air bag systems, validate the efficiencies of heating and cooling systems, quantify thermal impacts on tire wear, and much more.

High Performance MWIR InSb Camera

Find Failure Points Easily

Finding out what works – and what doesn’t – can be a destructive process, as engineers often must take systems apart to determine what failed. Thermal imaging cameras provide a reliable, accurate non-contact method for pinpointing the exact source of failures so engineers can start working on a solution.
