Instro Precision displayed its new Driver Vision Enhancement (DVE) system at DSEI 2017 in London.
The DVE is a passive solution that provides armoured vehicle drivers with day and night vision capabilities using low-light capable CMOS cameras.
Instro Precision introduced the system in response to user feedback, Mike Casey vice-president of sales and marketing told Jane’s , “Some customers struggle with the training burden involved with thermal imaging solutions used in some driver vision systems”.
The DVE system comprises a remote view camera with a 1,280x1,024 CMOS sensor with a 9 µm pixel pitch that connects to a remote view LCD flat panel monitor with a 1,024x768-pixel array. The system works by enabling full colour images down to a level of 1 Lux, and then auto switches from colour to black and white output as the ambient light level reduces to 100 mLux.
The modular system is suitable for new or retrofit applications, and includes GigE vision Ethernet video output, and serial RS232 connectivity. The architecture supports the connection of multiple DVE camera and display modules to enable panoramic viewing solutions and to meet user requirements.
