In addition to crash data, our accident reconstructionists utilize specialized equipment for recording speed and distance traveled. The VBOX Video HD2 provides our experts with real-time synchronised video and data with graphical overlay. Although developed to assist race car drivers to improve speed and handling, the VBOX data is perfect for use in the accident reconstruction process.
Identifying Max Speed
Whether the accident occurred with a ATV, passenger vehicle, or commercial truck, this equipment allows our experts to identify the maximum speed of the vehicle in question. From that information, the engineer can determine if the event could have occurred as claimed and if the damage matches the the data obtained.
The use of this equipment can help our experts determine if the reports of a low speed collision are accurate. For example, if a tractor trailer was stopped 2 car lengths behind a passenger vehicle, what speed could the tractor trailer obtain in that distance? By setting up the VBOX in the tractor trailer, our engineers can test and record that information with video evidence. Visit our Low Speed Collisions page for more information on reconstruction services.
Depending on the importance of a case, U.S. Forensic’s accident reconstructionists will identify a exemplar vehicle and reconstruct the accident in real time. This equipment will record speed, distance traveled, movement, accelerations, and braking. This data can be analyzed to answer various questions that pertain to a particular case. Would the occupant have had enough time to brake? Could the vehicle have been in the claimed position during a lane change? Could they have accelerated to the point of causing extensive damage? All of the testing is video recorded along with the real time data. Visit our accident reconstruction page for more information about this service.
