Transport Pollution - Using Infrared Cameras to Observe Pollution in Real-Time

FLIR’s infrared imaging technology is being used by researchers at Kings College London to visualise, in real-time, the pollution caused by transport in the UK.
The pollution caused by transport is thought to cause tens of thousands of premature deaths in the UK alone and more measures are required to address this problem. A key requirement for finding a solution is convincing the general public that this is a real issue.
The researchers at King’s hope that FLIR’s infrared technology, which allows the plumes of pollution pouring out of cars, buses and aeroplanes to be dramatically visualised, will help them demonstrate the urgent need for cleaner transport.
