Laser total stations enable our accident reconstructionists to measure even the largest accident scenes with milimeter accuracy, resulting in accurate scene diagrams.
Measurement Data from total stations is downloaded directly into the PC/software in order to get the most accurate results. Direct downloading of measurement data enables us to plot data quickly and accurately, resulting in highly accurate accident diagrams and reconstructions, completed in a fraction of the time.
Avoid unecessary traffic delays and road closures. Have experts collect all data for accurate analyses and reconstructions. Measurement can be supplied in a variety of data formats or as a diagram.
Crashteams’ partners use ultra portable pocket personal computers (PC). Equipped with a range of software, these weather rugged devices make them an indispensable tool for our experts when it comes to mobile data acquisition. These PC devices are utilized for measuring surface deceleration values or scene geometry, and are equipped for all weather use. When competitors are relying on old data collection methods, Crashteams’ partners are utilizing this pocket PC technology to minimize human error and increase data collection efficiency. This saves our clients’ money and provides professional and reliable information.
Crashteams’ partners utilize the most up to date total station equipment available from the surveying industry.
