Kineticorp’s Justin Holderness, and Nathan Rose discuss Nathan’s book on motorcycle accident reconstruction.
The information you can get from an event data recorder (EDR) has helped innovate vehicle safety technology but it is also very useful when it comes to reconstructing accidents. In this episode of Kineticorp’s Forensic Science Round Table, Justin Holderness and Will Bortles discuss Will’s EDR research.
The growth of autonomous vehicles has created a number of questions for a number of industries. Accident reconstruction is one industry that will absolutely be effected by vehicle technology. Engineer and Auto Systems Specialist, Sean McDonough, discusses the future of Accident Reconstruction and Autonomous vehicles.
Transcription Neal Carter: The DriveCam data is a great way to find some information about a case very efficiently. If we have this DriveCam data we can get to a point where we’re telling a client something relevant to a case in, terms of speed and severity, a lot quicker.… read more →
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.
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 →
Virtual reality is no longer associated with just gaming and entertainment. Industries such as journalism, medicine and education are exploring ways this new technology can be utilized. Kineticorp is currently developing virtual reality as an effective communication tool which can be used in the courtroom. In Ep1 of Kineticorp’s Forensic Science… read more →
