State-of-the-Art 3D Scanning
As part of our crash data collection process, we perform high resolution laser scanning using the Leica Geosystems Scan Station C-10 system.
This time of flight scanning system captures the geometry of visible structures up to 200 m from the scan location. We conduct high resolution scanning of crashes and non-crashed vehicles, crash scenes, and structures on an as-needed basis.
Using the point cloud captured during the scan, a full 3D replica of the scanned object or scene offers many important benefits for subsequent analysis and simulation.
In the case of a crashed vehicle, such replicas allow us to conduct a more accurate crash reconstruction, including:
- Pre-crash speeds
- Crash energy absorbed
- Delta-V, primary direction of force
Additionally, compartment intrusion profiles and intruding structures can be characterized and this data may serve as a basis for occupant simulations and analysis.
Scene data is useful for documenting vehicle path of travel and trajectory during case reviews.
