FLIR Firefly Deep Learning Machine Vision Camera for original equipment manufacturers, engineers and makers is now available for purchase

 FLIR Systems announces the launch of the FLIR Firefly® DL, the industry’s first deep learning, inference-enabled machine vision camera with FLIR Neuro technology. With its small size, low weight, minimal power consumption, and deep learning capabilities, the FLIR Firefly DL camera is ideal for embedding into mobile, desktop, and handheld systems.

The Firefly DL with deep learning enables original equipment manufacturers, engineers, and makers to quickly develop and deploy solutions to challenging automation tasks. Additionally, system makers can reduce the cost and complexity of their work by deploying a trained neural network directly onto the camera, eliminating the need for a host system to complete the tasks of classification, and object detection and localization.

Firefly DL combines machine vision performance with the power of deep learning to address complex and subjective problems, such as recognising faces or determining the quality of a solar panel. The Firefly DL camera is the first FLIR camera to use FLIR Neuro technology, which enables users to deploy their trained neural network directly onto the camera, making inference on the edge and on-camera decision-making possible. FLIR Neuro provides an open platform and supports popular frameworks, including TensorFlow and Caffe for maximum flexibility. Neuro is ideal for classification, and localisation and detection functionalities.

FLIR Firefly DL is available for purchase today through authorised FLIR distributors globally and online for £231 (ex. VAT). To learn more about the FLIR Firefly DL and how to build your first deep learning classification system, please visit www.flir.co.uk/Firefly-DL

FLIR Systems specialises in technologies that enhance perception and awareness.  The company brings innovative sensing solutions into daily life through its thermal imaging and visible light imaging technology and systems for measurement, diagnosis, location and advanced threat detection.  Its products improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance productivity, increase energy efficiency and make the workplace safer.

FLIR Systems has six operating segments – surveillance, instruments, OEM and emerging markets, maritime, security and finally, detection. Of these six, ‘instruments’ is of greatest interest to trade and industry and the second largest segment in the company’s portfolio. This division provides devices that image, measure and assess thermal energy, gases and other environmental elements for industrial, commercial and scientific applications.

These products are manufactured across five production sites, three in the USA and two in Europe; Sweden and Estonia.

A model to suit every application and budget
The options that FLIR Systems provides for measuring temperature and studying thermal performance have never been greater.  Not only does the company offer a huge range of models to suit all thermal application needs but the technology is also affordable and very easy to use.  Thermal cameras now come in various shapes, sizes and degrees of sophistication and FLIR continues to invest heavily in the development of new and complementary technologies to differentiate itself from competitors.

An important milestone in the development of thermal imaging has been the introduction of the FLIR Lepton® core, a micro longwave detector, the size of a mobile SIM.  This has allowed thermal imaging to be repackaged to meet the needs of an even wider audience and, in combination with another new technology called Infrared Guided Measurement – IGM™ – has led to the development of a range of test and measurement meters with imaging capability.

Another important growth area for FLIR thermal imaging is in continuous monitoring to assure quality and safety.  Through its introduction of discrete fixed mounted thermal cameras which are fully compliant industry standard plug-and-play protocols, FLIR Systems has provided industry with infrared machine vision which is instantly ready for quick and easy network installation.

Protecting assets and people from fire is an area for which thermal imaging is least known but, thanks to FLIR Systems’ development, it is now one of the most cost-effective methods available.  Its application flexibility and rapid return on investment present an attractive proposition for any site or safety manager.
