Detects the heat that is radiating from almost all objects and materials to transform this data into images and videos. Thermal Sensor Cameras are capable of capturing a wide variety of objects and organisms, as almost every source on the planet, as well as within the Universe, radiates some level of thermal energy. These include, but are not limited to, living species, buildings, planes, electrical sources, machinery, land, rocks, liquid, gas, etc.
By using thermal sensors on a drone, it can be used for various operations involving extreme heat, such as in firefighting, tracking forest for fires, tracking volcanoes, etc. Thermal sensor enabled drones help in inspection of chimney stacks, power stations and other such locations much quicker. There have been various instances where thermal drone has helped in rescue operations.
