Webinar - Utilizing a LASER Mapping System to Take Detailed Vehicle Profile & Crush Measurements

Date:               Thursday, July 9, 2020
Time:               12:00 noon to 1:00 pm EDT
Cost:               Free

Crash reconstruction methods based on crush or energy analysis are a valuable tool for identifying an object’s speed.  By focusing on the scientific process to quantify energy, reconstructionists determine the required amount of energy needed to cause vehicle damage in question.


Crush analysis can be a time-consuming process, this webinar will show you how to reduce your time in the field while achieving +/- 1mm accuracy needed for your reports.


Join LTI’s Vinny Alvino and Rich Maxwell for an interactive webinar as they explain and reveal a straightforward procedure for taking detailed profile measurements of a crashed vehicle utilizing the LTI TruPoint™ 300 Total Station - Laser Mapping System.  They will then review how to use that profile in a CAD program to obtain precise crush measurements of the damaged portion of the vehicle.

Contact Vinny Alvino vlavino@lasertech.com if you have any questions.
