Accident Reconstruction

When creating accident reconstructions, the sooner and faster the scene can be recorded, the better. With a 3D laser scanner from FARO®, crash investigators can quickly record vast amounts of data and bring the virtual scene back to the office. Lines of sight, for example, be analyzed from various vantage points or the scan data compared with OEM CAD files for vehicle deformation analysis. An accident animation may be possible in order to simulate the actual event.

3D laser scanning technology from FARO supports forensic experts by saving time and generating superior deliverables.

Using 3D Laser Technology Results in Significant Savings for Interagency Investigation Team

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office (Oregon) leads an interagency Criminal Reconstruction and Forensic Team (CRAFT) that includes Reconstructionists from eight different police agencies. In the past, the team used a total station to map crash scenes and a handheld distance meter for interior scenes. Today, their measurement device of choice is a Focus3D X 330 laser scanner.
