Multivariate perception testing for fire service thermal imager evaluations
TLDR
This work provides an answer to the question "How good does the image need to be?" for testing image quality of fire service thermal imagers. Fire fighters were asked to identify potential fire hazards in 4500 images that had been degraded in brightness, contrast, spatial resolution, and noise level . Expand
