The infrared thermal imaging automobile driving assistant system was developed from the night-vision device on a tank. In the 1950s, to improve the night-time mobility of a tank, equipment with night-vision capacity was installed on the tank to make the tank move freely at night. The infrared thermal imaging automobile driving assistant system has an infrared detection capacity which instantly detects animals & pedestrians and can sense infrared rays out of the range of human vision. Initially due to high costs, it was mainly used for military applications such as tanks, armoured carriers and radar vehicles. However, with the scientific and technological progress, market popularity and lower price, the vehicle-mounted infrared night-vision system is now more accessible to the general public.
