Open Access Graduate Research Paper
With vastly growing technologies various sensing devices have emerged, which can be used with a microcontroller to provide mobility and ease for various sensing applications. This paper is focused to interface a thermopile sensor (HTPA8x8dL2. l/0.8) with a Raspberry Pi 3.
The thermopile array acquires thermal image data and communicates with a Raspberry Pi 3 via an 12C (Inter Integrated Circuit) interface. On the Raspberry Pi 3 side the data stream is logged and then transferred to a personal computer (PC). Finally, the thermal image data are visualized in the PC with MATLAB, a scientific computing software. In summary, the Raspberry Pi based thermal imaging system is portable and of low-cost, and is capable to be used in many applications especially in health care area in near future.
