Paper Abstract

Calspan Corporation of Buffalo, New York is currently developing a computerized vehicle to aid in the investigation and reconstruction of automobile accidents. This vehicle includes an optical measuring technique which will enhance the speed and accuracy with which accident evidence is collected at the scene. A unique feature of the system is the ability to scientifically reconstruct the accident, based on the optically gathered evidence. It is felt that this system, which improves the accuracy and consistency of accident reporting, will have a positive influence on efforts to improve traffic safety on our nation's highways.
