Title: INFRARED IMAGING IN MULTIPLE IMAGING MODES SYSTEMS AND METHODS
Abstract:
Techniques are disclosed for systems and methods for facilitating infrared imaging in multiple imaging modes. A device may include an infrared image capture circuit and at least one processing circuit. The infrared image capture circuit may be configured to detect first infrared data and generate a first pixel value based on the first infrared data and a first imaging mode among multiple imaging modes. The at least one processing circuit may be configured to compare the first pixel value to a set of saturation threshold values associated with the first imaging mode. The at least one processing circuit may be further configured to select an imaging mode among the multiple imaging modes based on the comparison of the first pixel value. The at least one processing circuit may be further configured to set the infrared image capture circuit to generate a second pixel value based on the selected imaging mode.
