CCTV systems, including dashboard cameras (or dashcams), can provide invaluable evidence in relation to the speed, movement and reactions of the parties involved in a collision or incident.
CCTV cameras are becoming routinely available, be that static cameras on buildings such as shop premises, or vehicle mounted cameras (‘dashcams’).
Our independent experts are highly experienced in forensic CCTV analysis, reviewing footage from different sources as well as assessing the reliability of the information. By using specialist software together with traditional reconstruction techniques, the speed, orientation and actions of vehicles and pedestrians can be established.
“The use of CCTV systems has increased significantly in recent years along with a considerable rise in the use of dashboard and helmet cameras.”
Camera matching is a technique which allows the movements of vehicles or pedestrians prior to a collision to be accurately tracked with the use of laser scanning and 3D modelling. It is used to:
- Aid visibility assessments by enabling experts to determine what is available to be seen by a driver during each frame
- Provide accurate information, such as vehicle speed, during collision reconstructions
Our news article Video Footage: Dos and Don’ts for Getting the Best Evidence outlines some of the important factors to consider when obtaining video footage for an investigation.
