Paper Abstract

What is the position, velocity, and attitude of an automobile at time T1 at T2? The same question might be asked of an object or occupant inside the auto during an impact test. How much damage was incurred, both in a qualitative sense, and in a quantitative sense? Manufacturers need answers to these questions to improve the safety of the automobile, and they frequently use photography to collect the test data.
