A cross-platform thermal camera viewer application.
Binaries are available for desktop Linux (x64) and Mac OS platforms; see the Releases tab on GitHub. The Wiki tab has instructions for building on Raspbian. Success has also been reported on NVIDIA Linux for Tegra. Ultimately, any platform that runs QT 5.7+ and libusb should function with some effort.
GetThermal supports all FLIR Lepton variants used with the USB PureThermal 1 or PureThermal 2 Smart I/O Modules, including the Radiometric Lepton 2.5 and 3.5
It also supports basic thermal data acquisition from FLIR Boson 320 and 640.
Prerequisites: You will need
libusb-1.0 and CMake installed. You will
also need QT 5.7 or newer. On OS X, these packages should
be available via Homebrew.
GetThermal uses a modified version of
libuvc for camera image download and control. Even if
libuvc on your system already, you will have to build the fork.
Get the source code
git clone https://github.com/groupgets/GetThermal cd GetThermal
Get libuvc and build
To build the
libuvc fork, you can run these shell commands:
git submodule init git submodule update pushd libuvc mkdir build cd build cmake .. make popd
GetThermal is a QT qmake project. So all you should have to do now is to fire up QTCreator, open the project file, and hit run.
OSx Qt-Creator build prerequisites
If Qt Creator fails to run the application due to errors with linking the proper ImageIO.framework or libjpeg version, go to Projects -> Run -> Run Environment and edit the DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH and DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH by adding
to the beginning of the line.
Via Command Line
You can also build from the command line:
qmake # or depending on your installation, maybe ~/Qt/5.7/clang_64/bin/qmake make
This is a work in progress. See the Releases tab in github for OS X and Linux pre-release builds.
