Title (EN) NIGHTTIME SENSING
(FR) DÉTECTION NOCTURNE
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods for night vision combining sensor image types. Some implementations may include obtaining a long wave infrared image from a long wave infrared sensor; detecting an object in the long wave infrared image; identifying a region of interest associated with the object; adjusting a control parameter of a near infrared sensor based on data associated with the region of interest; obtaining a near infrared image captured using the adjusted control parameter of the near infrared sensor; and determining a classification of the object based on data of the near infrared image associated with the region of interest.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de vision nocturne combinant des types d'images de capteurs. Certains modes de réalisation peuvent consister à : obtenir une image infrarouge à ondes longues à partir d'un capteur infrarouge à ondes longues; détecter un objet dans l'image infrarouge à ondes longues; identifier une zone d'intérêt associée à l'objet; ajuster un paramètre de commande d'un capteur proche infrarouge d'après les données associées à la zone d'intérêt; obtenir une image proche infrarouge capturée à l'aide du paramètre de commande ajusté du capteur proche infrarouge; et déterminer une classification de l'objet d'après les données de l'image proche infrarouge associées à la zone d'intérêt.
