What The Need Of A Black Body In A Thermal Camera ?

I would like to know that’s the need of a black body ? If the environment temperature of the room with thermal camera is let’s say 20 degree in morning and 25 degree in afternoon , will the placement of black body make a difference ?

Most claim 0.5 deviation without black body and 0.3 with black body. How is this one proceed to be a difference of 0.2 ?

Or is black body simply a device which helps an inferior thermal camera to make up on the high deviation by using a reference and comparison method ?

For moving traffic without stop and go,are there cameras which IPVM tested and confirmed to work with a practical deviation of less than 0.5 degree ?

There is too many products offered out in market and many of them with black body is expensive and we have customers asking why put this device which increases foot print and complicates the installation when there are options from brands offering without black body scenario and moving traffic .
