All driver vision enhancement systems are not the same. This is especially true for defense vehicle applications that can employ daylight sensors (typically charge-coupled devices (CCDs)), lowlight sensors (image intensifier tubes) or thermal imaging sensors (Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) and Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR)). The fused Driver Vision Enhancement (fDVE) solution from RFEL Ltd, a UK-based electronic […]
