Crash reconstruction utilizes the analysis of physical evidence to apply physics in the evaluation of an incident. It is critical that investigators are able to quickly obtain accurate dimensional data of the scene and the vehicles involved in an incident. While the FARO® Focus Laser Scanner is preferred to capture large objects and the overall site, the FARO Freestyle3D X Handheld Scanner produces excellent results for capturing critical details, such as minor marks, cracks, dents, discolorations or debris. This whitepaper is the result of a demonstration performed by KEVA Engineering, LLC to describe the appropriate uses and applications for the FARO Freestyle3D X and explain the use of certain settings.
