Thermal imager optris PI160 contributes to road safety
01. October 2012
The German TV station “mdr” reported during its educational programme „Plusminus“ that the thermal imager optris PI160 has been introduced as a helpful measurement device in the field of vehicle thermography.
Within seconds the optris PI160 can spot faulty tyres and damages on lorry brake systems. Detecting these technical issues can greatly contribute to road safety.
On a number of occasions faulty tyres and brake systems which led to the occurrence of road accidents have not been recognised as such. The German Federal Office for Goods Transport (BAG) is therefore currently examining to what extend thermal imagers could improve effectivity of road checks and contribute to a decrease in road accidents.
