FLIR Thermal Imaging Helps Catch Cycling Cheaters
Applications for Thermal Imaging are everywhere, and more are being realised every day. Have a look at how Cycling USA are utilising Flir technology to catch cycling cheats.
We caught up with Chuck Hodge, technical director for USA Cycling who have recently started using a FLIR T640 to monitor for mechanical doping. In some cases, cycling racers have hidden small motors installed inside bike frames to help give an extra boost. Now, with FLIR and thermal imaging’s help, USA Cycling is doing something to catch cheaters in the act. Take a look.
