Radiometry Data Gathering

What is Radiometry?

  • Radiometry is the science of measuring light in any portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.
  • A radiometric thermal camera measures the temperature of a surface by interpreting the intensity of an infrared signal reaching the camera.

How can Lepton help with Radiometric Data Gathering?

  • A properly calibrated Lepton camera can measure the temperature of the surface it is viewing.
  • The Lepton SDK can provide functionality for getting temperature.
  • Further calibration can be performed to increase the accuracy of the temperature information.

Step 1:Radiometric Lepton Cameras

You will need one of the Lepton cameras that are radiometrically calibrated. Here you can view the camera's datasheets or find out where you can purchase a radiometric Lepton camera.
