C-THRU goes inside of a firefighter's helmet to provide an augmented reality overlay of a building with thermal imaging that makes it easier to navigate

For firefighters, a simple mistake could have drastic consequences, like taking a wrong turn inside of a burning building. To make finding their way faster and more foolproof, Qwake Tech developed a thermal imaging system called the C-THRU that outlines a clear path for the firefighter in augmented reality.

The C-THRU unit goes inside of the firefighter's helmet. This augmented reality technology is roughly the size of a deck of cards. The system comes with its own thermal imaging processor to combine with the AR overlay. Using the two images layered over each other, the firefighter can make a more educated decision about where they need to go during a critical situation.

Qwake Tech has a finished prototype of the C-THRU, and the company is now focusing on bringing this technology to the open market.
