FLIR One Mounted Casing

Designed from scratch, this encasement for an iPhone 5/5s with the FLIR One Thermal Camera attached includes a GoPro mount for high versatility and protection of the assembly. With a small volume 3D printed and sent out to various locations for use in public demonstrations, these cases are designed to be simple, appealing and useful with the potential for larger production later on if the need arises.

Hackathons Programmer Support

AdvanceWorx has been offering technical programming support for Flir Hackathons since December 2014, including involvement in the following events: Mountain View, Santa Barbara, San Fransisco, New York, Hong Kong, and London UK. The hackathons offer development teams an opportunity to design hardware and software involving thermal imaging, offering prizes to the teams with the best projects. Among the exciting projects developers have created include: smart wearables for children and the visually impaired, 3d thermographic medical diagnostics, a thermal video game motion controller, and many other clever inventions. For an overview of past hackathons, visit the Past Developer Events page on the Flir website.

Pocket Cam

Snap Together Casings for LCD in the FLIR PocketCams. These are small thermal imaging sensors with an LCD display and basic camera functionality. The casing gives the product a pleasant, finished look while protecting the electronics and allowing for side-by-side snap together assemblies of multiple cameras for various comparisons. Designed from scratch at AdvanceWorx and 3D printed for a small volume in-house.

FLIR & GroupGets “Ruby” Casing

GroupGets has been releasing FLIR Lepton Dev Kits that allow users to overlay the thermal imagery from a lepton sensor onto the colour image from a Raspberry Pi Camera and create custom software. One of the requirements of the overlay is that the Pi Camera and the Lepton are held at a fixed distance apart. AdvanceWorx was asked to fix the problem by creating an attractive little casing that held both cameras and allowed for mounting to a tripod, the result is what has been nicknamed the “Ruby”.

Software Design

Development of software featuring FLIR’s thermal imaging technology.

Vernier Thermal Analysis for FLIR One

AdvanceWorx created the most advanced thermal software available anywhere for Vernier Software and Technology. Then, we pushed it even further creating Vernier Thermal Analsys Plus for FLIR One with even more uniqe thermal imaging features!

SilverThink

VacciTrack

Next generation IoT medical device developed by AdvanceWorx for SilverThink. Electroncis engineering, PCB design, firmware programming, enclosure design and manufacturing were all performed in-house at AdvanceWorx. 

Comfort Tracker

As featured on Gizmodo. Comfort Tracker is a mobile application for conducting simple and accurate insulation audits on your home by utilization of the FLIR One Thermal Camera. The app can detect any anomalies in the heat signatures through the walls of your home and begin to diagnose any possible problems with the current insulation. From here, the app can recommend products and solutions to correct the flaw. Compatible with iPhone and Android.

Third Floor IR Exhibit

The IR exhibit at Science North was designed to introduce attendees to the technology of IR through a fun, accessible exhibit for all ages. The exhibit, updated in 2017, makes use of FLIR Systems’ latest BOSON thermal imagaging cores and the Unity 3D gaming engine for a high-performance, real-time thermal imaging experience!

Dynamic Earth Underground Photo Experience

A custom built application that is now part of the interactive underground show at Dynamic Earth, allowing guests to tag in to the tour and receive novelty photographs to remember the trip. With multiple photo stations and a review station in the gift shop, the system spans Dynamic Earth and has added to the new, more interactive approach of the underground tour.

Science North Website Bilingual CMS Conversion 

AdvanceWorx designed a translation system for the sciencenorth.ca TNEW E-commerce engine, giving the user a choice between multiple languages.

Mining Environment Power Supply

AdvanceWorx designed, prototyped, and fabricated, the power supply for TesMan’s mining environment technology.

FloWatch software development

In cooperation with KE2 and Starfish Medical Inc., AdvanceWorx is currently developing a device that will enhance care of the critically-ill; it will do so by providing continuous, and instantaneous hemodynamic assessments with ease for the physician and patient.

Driver Development

Ontrak Control Systems Inc. manufactures low-cost, high quality, serial data acquisition and control interfaces that allow data acquisition and computer control via a serial port (RS232, RS422, RS485 or USB ). When connected to a serial port the ADR and ADU boards allow control of analog (A/D and D/A), digital I/O, relay contacts and event counters using simple ASCII commands. AdvanceWorx developed Ontrak drivers for 64-bit Windows, and Mac OS X.

FLIR_Approved_APP_badge2Thermal Sentry

Thermal motion detection for iPhone! Thermal Sentry uses your iPhone with a FLIR One device to detect thermal motion, and sound an audible alarm. Thermal Sentry offers three sensitivities, and is only interested in motion in the human temperature range. Thermal Sentry logs the time & date of each alarm. Tapping a log entry will show you a thermal and visual image captured at the time of the alarm, so you can see what triggered the alarm.
