Night vision isn’t just restricted to those iconic night vision goggles we all wanted for Christmas, they are in fact a valid and necessary form of surveillance. Night vision is a form of image enhancement where a specialist camera lens turns the darkness of the night into a visible world of life and movement. This is usually done thermally using infrared radiation.
