I'm happy to present the final prototype of DroneThermal micro size analog (PAL/NTSC) thermal camera.
The project started 3 months ago and we have published some samples on our facebook page on 1 March 2015.
After hundreds hours of code work and design changes, the final prototype is ready for production. We signed the agreements with FLIR for Lepton thermal camera cores as well.
DroneThermal is based on FLIR's low cost 80x60 pixel Lepton camera cores.
Video frame rate and resolution is not much but the price is perfect for civilian small drone hobbyists.
You can pre-order it now, in order to take the advantage of %15 Spring discount.
Composite video signal resolution is higher than Lepton, so we can resize the thermal image and add some extra information into the video output. ( marking hottest and coolest objects etc. )
Unfortunately radiometry(temperature reading) looks nearly impossible because of high math and affects of air temperature, thickness, pressure, reflection rate of the objects and camera body temperature.
I'm working on some cool features and I will share the videos and more information soon, so please share your opinions with me for improvements.
