Nathan Rose and Neal Carter return from their scene inspection in California where they gathered data to determine the lean angle of a motorcycle on a curve. In part two of this case study they discuss their analysis of the data and what it means for future motorcycle accident reconstruction.… read more →
Nathan Rose, Neal Carter and William Neale took a trip to California to conduct research for a case where the lean angle of a motorcycle needed to be determined. Take a look at some of the work that they did to determine key aspects to this accident.
In this episode of Kineticorp’s Forensic Science Round Table, Justin Holderness sits down with Senior Forensic Animator Toby Terpstra to discuss lens distortion, how it can affect the physics of a case and the research he has conducted regarding lens distortion. If you would like to learn more, email Toby… read more →
Kineticorp’s Justin Holderness, and Nathan Rose discuss Nathan’s book on motorcycle accident reconstruction.
Senior Forensic Animator, David Hessel discusses pixel tracking techniques used to determine velocities of moving objects within a video. Video Transcription I wanted to try and find a quick, but accurate way of getting speeds of vehicles. Pixel tracking is a technique where you track a pattern of pixels across… read more →
Read Kineticorp‘s SAE research papers about lens distortion: 2017-01-1422 2011-01-0286 Video Transcription (Toby Terpstra) Whenever we’re talking about photogrammetry, accuracy is always a consideration for us, regardless of the project. We want to know that the solutions—the photogrammetric solutions are accurate such that we can take measurements out of those… read more →
Video Transcription Nathan Rose on EDR Literature: You’ll often hear accident reconstructionists talking about EDRs and that just simply stands for “event data recorder.” As accident reconstructionists, we’re very interested in that data because we can use it in our reconstruction. So, it’s really a matter of the manufacturers giving… read more →
Video Transcription Nathan Rose: Often times, we are asked to analyze how a vehicle interacted with a highway barrier. We can think of them in three general categories. One would be cable barrier. Another would be w-beam guardrail. And then, finally, concrete center median barrier or concrete barrier off the… read more →
