Abstract

A system for identifying and/or tracking a subject in an environment is provided. The system includes a thermal imaging device for capturing a thermal image of the environment and a computing platform executing a software application being configured for analyzing at least a portion of the thermal image to thereby automatically identify and/or track the subject within the environment.
