While the UCI didn't specifically mention thermal imaging, but a statement released on Monday confirmed that "additional methods of detection" will be employed.
French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche claims that one thermal camera will be mounted on a motorbike to detect motors during the race - a device loaned to organiser ASO by the French military.
The UCI will also use the magnetic wave scanning technology it has had in place in recent months.
UCI president Brian Cookson said: “Since the beginning of the year, we are sending a clear message which is that there is literally no-where to hide for anyone foolish enough to attempt to cheat in this way.
"A modified bike is extremely easy to detect with our scanners and we will continue to deploy them extensively throughout the Tour and the rest of the season.”
