Fuel Economy: Who cares? It's a DIESEL! Great fuel economy comes as a bonus!

I had a little fun with the FLIR night vision camera in my 535d at TDIfest.



My wife Lisa was talking with Carl in front of the hotel and I had the 535d pointed at them. The night vision pedestrian detection system automatically highlights any part of the image in yellow that it recognizes as a person standing in front of the car. Animals such as deer are highlighted orange.

The image is strictly a thermal image. The FLIR camera does not respond to visible light at all. It sees infra-red energy radiated from (warm) objects, which we feel as heat. The front steps of the building appear to glow because they soaked up heat during the day and are still warmer than the nighttime ambient temp. Objects at ambient temp appear as a middle gray color. Objects warmer than ambient temp appears to glow. Objects cooler than ambient temp appear darker.

The FLIR pic sort of looks like aliens have landed at TDIfest.

I don't remember the name, but it was an articulated oil barge. It appears to have a clipper bow in that photo but it really doesn't. In lake Michigan the color of the barge indicates the cargo. Black = coal or oil.

Thanks. I did a google search and found an infographic on ATBs that has a silhouette of one showing the entire outline from superstructure to keel.

It's a new 155,000 bbl oil tanker being built for Kirby Marine. The bow reads "KIRBY 155-01"
