thermal imaging camera for the road laying industry
MATtest Southern are Civil engineering, materials, testers, required to monitor road surface temperature and safety reports.
We were approached by MATtest Southern to produce an application which uses a special algorithm to measure the temperature of a surface area by way of thermal imaging cameras, to assist with road surfacing.
- Thermal Imaging data reading
- Complex Data Algorithm
- Simple UI
Making use of thermal imaging cameras, whether add-ons or built-in to device, we were required to incorporate an algorithm so that accurate readings of heat across surface area would be recordable and captured.
Thanks to the quality of camera on even lower end devices and the thermal adapters available, the visuals of the application were relatively straight-forward. We kept an open UI as the app relies on Camera view in the main part, this resulted in minimum input for the user for a quick and intuitive experience.
TECHNICAL & UX CONSIDERATIONS
The data returned by the thermal adapters took some manipulation to return readable results to the UI. The algorithm to manage this probably took the bulk of the effort required for the entire project.
