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 →
When protruding Lug Studs sideswipe the side of another vehicle, specific geometric patterns appear. What happens when two wheels sideswipe during an accident? The resulting patterns may be analyzed and attributed to vehicle speeds and behavior before during and after an accident. Kineticorp’s Will Bortles discusses his research and explains… read more →
Kineticorp’s Nathan McKelvey discusses motorcycle headlamp research and how this research pertains to accident cases.
3D vehicle scans have become a vital component in accurate and credible accident reconstruction. Sean McDonough shares a bit about our procedure in acquiring vehicle exemplar scans. For any further information on our scanning capabilities or our procedures, please contact Sean McDonough.
In this Kineticorp research video, Neal Carter, Martin Randolph and Nathan Rose calculate the Center of Gravity Height Analysis of a large SUV. This analysis will aid in the reconstruction of roll over cases and other applicable instances. “When we are analyzing a roll over case, for instance, that is… read more →
by Nathan Rose, Director and Principal at Kineticorp Seven Principles An animation can provide tremendous value to a jury by making an expert’s opinions more understandable. In this article, I will give you 7 principles for producing credible and admissible animations for use in depositions, mediations, settlement conferences, and… read more →
