The primary aim of the ADVENTURE project is to strengthen the Thermal Spraying (TS) coating technology by introduction of the Laser Surface Texturing (LST), a clean, flexible, reproducible, environmentally friendly and resource-efficient technology, to the substrate preparation.

The project is focused on the research of thermodiagnostic methods using IR cameras as tools for non-contact and fast identification of people with increased temperature and at the same time tools aiming to ensure the national security and management of epidemic threats. Details at https://medical.labir.cz/en/ Main goal: - To learn from the COVID ‐ 19 epidemic and to prepare a solution for a functional system of reliable thermodiagnostics of people in the Czech Republic for future epidemic threats manifesting the increased temperature of those infected. Additional goals: - Practically verify the hypothesis of a more accurate determination of the internal temperature of the measured person coming from an external warmer/colder environment, using an IR camera with a more sophisticated evaluation of the temperature field distribution. - Practically verify the hypothesis of earlier diagnosis of the onset of the epidemic and monitoring of its course using IR cameras with advanced processing of time series thermograms of a large number of people. - Develop a methodology for the use of thermographic diagnostic tools in times of “peace”, at the beginning of the epidemic, in the ongoing epidemic, and in local outbreaks. - To pass on information about new possibilities of using thermal imaging systems to the components of the integrated rescue system and to train them for more efficient and effective provision of their tasks not only during the epidemic. - To acquaint the professional and general public with the results of research and development and thus ensure wider application of project results, strengthen cooperation with the components of the integrated rescue system and achieve an increase in the level of security of the state and citizens in case of epidemic threats in the future.
An overview project of our laboratory made for sharing ideas, events, publications and our other activities. The project topics are mostly related to themography, thermographic testing, temperature measurement and some additional thinks connected with our "thermal" activities.
