Open Source IR Camera
(Redirected from Open Source Infrared Camera)
- A generalized photo/video point and shoot camera
- can see in the IR Spectrum, such as to get thermographic images for thermal leak detection in the Seed Eco-Home
- Can be used only as a regular camera as well
- Can be used as an internet camera over wireless
- Can be used with the D3D printer for monitoring
- May be adapted to aerial quadcopter drones, though a dedicated smaller camera may be needed for smaller drones
- May be used in open source 3D printed microscope
- Is a product line in the Open Source Everything Store, including other accessories such as Open Source Camera Stabilizer or linear camera rails, camera holders.
- Is suitable for Extreme Manufacturing workshops
- Can be a basis for further design evolution in Extreme Design Jams
- Producible as an element of curriculum for schools
- Usable in a standard open source toolchain for OSE documentation, interchangeable with ShopAid camera
- May be used in remote monitoring, so must be water-tight and UV stabilized
Tech Tree of Choices
- Top choice - Thermografree - . Logan Williams can help. 32x32 sensor - sufficient for decent thermal measurements of the Seed Eco-Home. This has 2 sensors, so it can overlay thermal images over standard images.
- Engineering Work (Diagnosing gas leaks, seeing thermal insulation of buildings etc.)
- Scientific Work
- Search and Rescue (ie on boats at night)

- See Thermografree
- 8x8 sensor - so more on the toy side - and higher screen resolution - from Adafruit - . 0-80C
- GNU-GPL License.
- High resolution - 80x60 pixel
- Cost of sensor only is $180, so the overall product is on the expensive side.
- Arduino based, scanning servo with series of 1-point measurements - 
Minimum Viable Product
- User Maintainable
- Generalized + Multipurpose
- Sensitive to (insert wavelength range here)
