LANCom PIS new functionality

In cooperation with the Flir Systems company, which is one of the world's leading thermal cameras manufacturers, we developed a common solution that connects the advanced fire detection and with the help of the LANCom PIS system, informs the passengers, drivers and operators about the possible danger. The algorithms of smart fire detectors detect the size, temperature and the movement of a “hotspot”. With this kind of approach, we can eliminate false possible threats, such as cigarettes and lighters. On the other hand, we can use this system just for this purpose, as it is shown in the video below.

On a less serious note…

Our boys did not forget about the only woman in their team. On the International Women's Day, which was also the last day of the fair, they improvised excellently and made sure she got a flower or two! :)
