Collision Reconstruction Analysis

 

Collision Reconstruction:

Crash Reconstruction is a scientific approach learning how a motor vehicle crash occurred. Reconstructing crashes requires a methodology that begins with known facts such as vehicle final rest positions, scene evidence and vehicle damage.  By working with this data in reverse, beginning with the known evidence of final rest positions along with information relevant to the crash, we can resolve issues such as speeds, driving behavior and other causal factors.  A crash reconstruction is the culmination of the scientific analysis of the data gathered and formulated into a concise report.

 Many passenger motor vehicles have incorporated an event data recorder with the airbag control module.  These devices may capture and record very useful information pertaining to a crash, such as speeds, braking, change in velocity (delta-v) and other vehicle parameters.  Crash data retrieval is the process of extracting the information in a readable format via hardware, cables and software.   The data obtained can be a useful supplement to traditional crash reconstruction analysis.
