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.
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… read more →
Last week, Nathan Rose sat down with Will Bortles of Kineticorp to discuss the research he just published at the 2017 Society of Automotive Engineers World Congress. Here is a transcript of their discussion and what this research means to accident reconstruction. This research relates to methods for acquiring data from… read more →
Data Acquisition using Smart Phone Applications Abstract: This paper examines a method for generating a scaled three-dimensional computer model of an accident scene from video footage. This method, which combines the previously published methods of video tracking and camera projection, includes automated mapping of physical evidence through rectification of each frame.… read more →
How Accurate are Witness Distance Estimates Given in Car Lengths? Article Introduction – Accident reconstructionists generally agree that eye witness estimates of distance are often inaccurate. Robins , for instance, observes that “in spite of the many converging cues available to humans to judge the separation distances and speeds of… read more →
August 28, 2016 – Kineticorp is pleased to announce that Neal Carter, P.E., and Nathan McKelvey have passed the FAA Part 107 test for commercial sUAS (Small Unmanned Aerial System, or “drone”), and have received their Airman Certificates with sUAS rating. Neal and Nathan can now fly small UAS within… read more →
