Under the terms of the agreement, FLIR stockholders will receive $28 per share in cash and 0.0718 shares of Teledyne common stock for each FLIR share, which implies a total purchase price of $56 per FLIR share based on Teledyne’s 5-day volume weighted average price as of December 31, 2020.
The transaction reflects a 40 percent premium for FLIR stockholders based on FLIR’s 30-day volume weighted average price as of December 31, 2020. [Read more…] about Teledyne Technologies to acquire FLIR Systems
As employees continue returning to the office, travelers start flying again, fans slowly return to stadiums,
technology that focuses on maintaining health and safety in semi-public and private venues remains crucial
to slowing the spread of COVID-19.
In response, FLIR Systems today announced the FLIR Elara™ FR-345-EST, a fixed-mount radiometric
thermal security camera that measures elevated skin temperature (EST) accurately without contact or the
need for a reference temperature source. This system provides a safe and effective environment at high
traffic airports, stadiums, commercial buildings, and manufacturing facilities to quickly asses skin
temperature at access control points. The Elara FR-345-EST automatically guides to the part of the body that
most closely correlates to core body temperature: the inner-canthus—or the inner eye of a human
face—without sacrificing accuracy or the ability to maintain social distancing guidelines. [Read more…] about FLIR Introduces Elara FR-345-EST for Rapid and Accurate Elevated Skin Temperature Screening
FLIR Systems has launched something called “FLIR Hadron”, which the company describes as the industry’s first dual sensor module for drone, robotic, and imaging original equipment manufacturers.
Designed to help reduce development costs and improve time-to-market, the lightweight, low power, and compact form factor includes a 12-megapixel visible camera paired with the FLIR Boson 320×240 resolution thermal camera with up to a 60-hertz framerate.
Paul Clayton, general manager, components business at FLIR, says: “With the introduction of Hadron, FLIR Systems is leading the way in offering low-cost, dual sensor integration across a variety of industries from commercial drones to industrial imaging systems.

FLIR Systems has made available its first European thermal imaging regional dataset and the third in a series of thermal imaging datasets for machine vision testing.
The company says the dataset is designed to help researchers, developers and auto manufacturers enhance and accelerate work on safety, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), automatic emergency braking (AEB) and autonomous vehicle systems.
The dataset features thousands of annotated thermal images of daytime, nighttime and various weather scenarios from six cities across Europe. [Read more…] about FLIR releases European thermal imaging dataset for automotive driver assistance development
Imaging company FLIR Systems has launched what it says is “the industry’s first” deep learning camera for applications ranging from industrial inspection to autonomous driving and others.
FLIR says the Firefly DL enables systems designers to build neural networks that are capable of decision-making at the edge.
FLIR is believed to be the world’s largest commercial company specializing in the design and production of thermal imaging cameras, components and imaging sensors. [Read more…] about FLIR launches ‘industry’s first’ deep learning camera
FLIR Systems has launched a camera which includes deep learning capabilities – the Firefly DL – for applications ranging from industrial inspection to autonomous driving and others.
Deep learning is a type of artificial intelligence which tends to ingest, or collect, far more data than does the machine learning method.
Both deep and machine learning types of AI tend to require large computing systems, generally necessitating clusters in the cloud, or at least a powerful PC. [Read more…] about FLIR launches new camera capable of deep learning
FLIR says automaker to become the industry’s ‘first of many’ to feature thermal sensing to improve safety of autonomous vehicles
FLIR Systems says its Boson-based thermal sensing technology has been selected by Veoneer, a tier-one automotive supplier, for its “Level 4” autonomous vehicle production contract with a top global automaker, planned for 2021.
FLIR says the Veoneer system will be “the first in the industry” to include multiple thermal sensing cameras that provide both narrow and wide field-of-view capabilities to enhance the safety of self-driving vehicles.
