A PHOTOGRAMMETRIC SYSTEM FOR MOTORVEHICLE ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION

The study consisted of fabricating a twin camera stereometric unit mounted on a portable carrier with 36 in spacing for the camera lenses. The unit was calibrated and its net accuracy capabilities were determined. A variety of applications were studied including: Mapping the site of the accident both 'on scene' with evidence present, and 'on site' after evidence was removed; photographing a vehicle in an effort to determine the qualitative data (type of damage) and quantitative data (specific measurements) available for study at any time the photographs are to be reviewed; and photographing a victim of an accident seeking qualitative and quantitative data. Major emphasis for the study centered around utilization problems and potential contributions to multidisciplinary studies. /NTIS/
