The temperature changes inside incubator a ect the newborns, who are the most delicate patients. The project proposes an innovative method to monitor the skin temperature of the neonates. The temperature monitoring is carried out by a virtual sensor. This virtual sensor is based in an infrared thermal camera that is placed outside the incubator. In order to obtain the infrared radiation through the incubator Plexiglas, an infrared transparent window is required. The experiment carried out was focused on obtaining the transparent properties in the infrared spectral range measurement of this window. On the other hand, the thermal imaging processing is necessary to obtain the thermal information from the infrared imager and to be able to track the region of interest throughout the eld of view.
