Cars that brake in response to road hazards, without driver input. High tech cameras that monitor environments inhospitable to humans. Drones that track and measure pollution. Technology is helping us see what human eyes can’t.
Uncovering ways to see more with every lens, to develop systems that show detailed overlays of data can advance everything from agriculture to travel to archaeology and beyond.
With the human eye confined to visible light, we’ve long used imaging system to see further, to see more. But the optical systems available until recently often limited what we were able to see, opening up the ultraviolet world but closing off the infrared, and vice-versa.
Let’s improve visibility.
