Fast, accurate documentation of accident scenes and vehicles is a critical component of accident reconstruction. Providing forensic experts with a combination of speed, accuracy, comprehensiveness and ease-of-use, 3D laser scanning technology from FARO® allows crash investigators to quickly record vast amounts of data and bring the virtual scene back to the office.
Using point cloud data collected from the laser scanner, investigators are able to develop highly detailed 3D models for analysis. For example, lines of sight can be analyzed from various vantage points or the scan data may be compared with OEM CAD files for vehicle deformation analysis. Additionally, the scan data can also be used to create accident animations to simulate the actual event for use in the courtroom.
Significantly reducing time spent on-scene, while improving safety and minimizing traffic congestion, 3D laser scanning technology provides the ideal data collection solution for accident reconstruction experts, law enforcement personnel, and forensic scientists.
