Thermal kinetics – the coolest technology in people counting

Posted by Allen Haynes on Sep 21, 2015 4:32:58 PM

Thermal technology is constantly evolving, and its uses are expanding. Advances in thermal imaging are a testament to the impact technology can have on an industry. Once expensive military technology, thermal imaging cameras are more affordable than ever. Even smartphones are privy to the technology, and retail professionals are quickly taking advantage of enhancements thermal technology provides. 

Thermal kinetics is the next wave of thermal innovation, making thermal the new cool.

Thermal kinetic-empowered sensors are unmatched in their ability to cope with the physical challenges of varying environments – especially in areas of low or no light, which can limit the effectiveness of video cameras to monitor a specified area and record footfall data.

Although effective in the right environment, the need for adequate lighting and the threat of a burned out light bulb – at the wrong time – makes video alone an unreliable people counting solution.

Thermal kinetic cameras monitor changes in temperature, which allows for objects and humans to become easily visible against the environment. Additionally, because the technology is based on temperature and not light, thermal imaging cameras provide long distance surveillance beyond the range of standard lighting.
