Palatine, IL. (May 28, 2020) – Each camera features a Midwest Optical Systems LP780 IR longpass filter that blocks most light under 780 nm wavelengths, to make sure light is captured primarily from the IR LEDs, versus capturing ambient light. Blocking visible daylight also eliminates shadow effects in the driver’s immediate area that may interfere with the accuracy of face recognition algorithms.
