Working with a Thermal Camera and HUD
I've been perusing this thread with the goal of helping me to install my own HUD for my thermal camera. The HUD will be displaying the image from a FLIR PathfindIR thermal camera mounted in the front grill of my TDI Jetta. I do about 20-30 grand of night driving and have had one to many close encounters with deer.
The HUD will have a frame to hold the LCD and a rigid semi-clear polarizer that will raised into viewing position by a electronically controlled linear actuator.
What I currently have:
1 Thermal Camera with mounting hardware and cable
1 7 inch 12 volt LCD monitor with Image reverse and vertical flip.
What is coming in the mail.
1 Firgelli Technologies PQ12 linear actuator with position sensitive controls (to allow for fine positioning of screen.
1 rigid polarizer.
1 frame and bracket assembly to hold the screen, polarizer and actuator
1 set of switches to activate screen and camera.
I will keep you all posted, and post pictures.
