September th, Toulouse, A high-pass filter was added to the optical system of the FLIR camera for selecting the wavelengths comprised between 0. Image Analysis and Processing. Concerning video analytics, SWIR imaging allows detection, recognition and identification of objects and persons. In this work, the fog was simulated by machines.
Differences in appearance between the visible and SWIR images are due to reflective material properties. Visible and SWIR streams were recorded from both cameras: A pass-band filter was added to the optical system of the FLIR camera for selecting the spectrum centered at wavelength around 1.

Another interesting point is that the phenomenon of nightglow, which is a very weak emission of light in the upper atmosphere, is more radiant in SWIR spectrum. These results are in agreement with previous works . Volumepp The results are presented below.
The experimentations, realized in October,show that persons are still detectable through artificial fog at indoor and outdoor conditions. This test was done at indoor in a room of 15m2. This technology provides also a strong visibility at dusk and dawn hours. A future experimentation would consist in generating images in SWIR spectrum of scenes with smoke in real conditions. Moreover, if the artificial fog is too dense 3the two persons in the background are only detectable in IR image 3.
For example, hairs are more reflective in SWIR spectrum. Rameshwar M September 27, at 9: As shows in Figure 3, the maximum radiant of nightglow in SWIR spectrum is similar at the radiant measured at 0. In video analytics, the SWIR imaging has sx2500 for extracting and locating features by using algorithms designed for visible spectrum. Newer Post Older Post Home.

The nightglow phenomenon allows also producing an image by night. This technology could be used by the firefighters for seeing through the smoke during an intervention. We observe in Figure 5 that the person disappears in the fog in the visible image while the same person is still visible in the SWIR image 2. As presented in the theoretical part, an array sensor, composed of InGaAs, could produce images of a scene with poor visibility such as a scene with haze, fog and smoke.
The sensitivity bandwidth is comprised between 0.
In conclusion, SWIR imaging allows using algorithms designed for analyzing visible images . The duration of test is nine minutes.

This test was done at outdoor in a garden composed of trees, grass and one path. The SWIR imaging is used in perimeter surveillance for seeing through fog, haze, dust and smoke. For this test, we used a fog machine which can produce 40m3 of artificial fog per minute.
The duration of test is 30 minutes. For this test, we used a fog machine which can produce m3 of artificial fog per minute.
