Paper Abstract

Advances in technologies can make them competitive in areas where they were not. Nevertheless, most commercial devices are designed with a particular application in mind. Attempting to use such a piece of equipment, notwithstanding technological improvements, may provide a suboptimal solution. However, simple and inexpensive modifications can sometimes be made allowing such a piece of equipment to have successful application is an area far removed from those intended in its original design. This paper describes such a situation, where a commercial thermography product designed for power line monitoring was modified to allow it to effectively function in a biometric application. Some of the approaches taken here could be applied to other technologies and other applications that could profit the community.
