Collision Scene Reconstruction and Investigation Using Unmanned Aircraft Systems
In August 2017 The North Carolina Department of Transportation Division of Aviation released a study of the their combined work with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol Collision Reconstruction Unit.
"Based on these findings, we believe that time spent at collision sites can be dramatically reduced by using UAS technology, allowing for rapid restoration of traffic flow and the safety of investigative members." N.C. State Highway Patrol Collision Reconstruction Unit
Read the studyhere to see how suitable UAVs are for replacing 3D scans by the FARO Focus 3D X330 Laser Scanner for daytime scenes.
The mdMapper200 is your gateway aerial mapping solution!
This highly capable starter package is easy to integrate into your tool chest.
Fly 20-25 minutes even in less than ideal conditions.
Our popular cameral selections make it easy to upgrade just the camera, not the whole system!
Low-Light Collision Scene Reconstruction Using Unmanned Aerial Systems
May 2018 Final Report - North Carolina Department of Transportation
After prior work by NCDOT and NCSHP showed that certain UAS can replace 3D scans by Faro for daytime scenes, under what conditions are UAS suitable for low-light collision reconstruction?
Further collaboration with RTI International produced results of a study design and data usefulness assessment. The University of North Carolina at Charlotte performed an image analysis and the impact of UAS trajectories, sensors, and lighting on reconstructions.

The mdMapper1000DG is your system to meet forensic mapping accuracy needs. It exceeds photogrammetry that is RTK supported.
Superior to RTK or PPK, this technology provides significant cost savings to users and enables access when images must be georeferenced in challenging locations including corridor mapping.
Used by hundreds of companies, the md4-1000 has the longest flight time on the market.
