The first customer trial, with a national logistics operator, will be a key step on the path to commercialisation for the technology and follows successful in-house testing.
Spectur’s thermal camera detection system uses thermal imaging technology and is capable of reliably detecting people and vehicles over long ranges in complete darkness.
Current system detects people up to 300 metres away
With traditional camera systems, a light source is required at night, limiting the ranges cameras can achieve in darkness. Thermal technology removes this limitation.
Spectur’s in-house testing has shown that the cameras in their current form are capable of detecting people up to 300 metres away in complete darkness.
Importantly, the company will soon test a new camera technology that can achieve ranges in excess of one kilometre.
Commercial sales targeted for the second quarter of 2018
Spectur’s thermal camera systems have been developed to be extremely power efficient, making them ideally suited for battery or solar power, as opposed to mains power.
The systems also run on the same cloud platform as Spectur’s existing cameras.
Upon successful completion of the customer testing, the product is expected to be available for commercial sale in the second quarter of 2018.
Spectur’s new technologies have the potential to add value to existing clients as well as drive sales to new clients that need a cost-effective long-range detection system.
