Its probably not the right place to be asking the question but I’m struggling to find a specific answer, how does a radiometric lepton (3.5) differ from a non-radiometric. More specifically when reading about radiometric measurement it says each pixel can be interpreted as a temperature value. What is a pixel from a non-radiometric lepton considered then, surely it could also be mapped back to a temperature as well? In which case how are they different.
I have been trying to understand where the object detection examples you provide actually make use of the radiometric aspect of the Lepton. My understanding is that a radiometric camera will give each pixel a temperature value and this data is stored in the image metadata. So why are the object detection examples converting a color to a temperature using the map_g_to_temp() function and not using the raw temperature values that a radiometric camera is supposed to provide.
My other question is how do I maintain the image as a radiometric image when sending it between devices because it currently seems like I am sending a standard .jpg file instead of a radiometric .jpg file which would have the temperature data in the images metadata. My current compressed .jpg images don’t seem to contain this information which is critical if your doing post processing.
