Data Collection hardware

Our re-constructionists are equipped with the latest high tech equipment such as laser total stations that allow us to measure a scene quickly and efficiently. We are also equipped with high resolution digital SLRs and the good old fashioned measuring tape.

Laser total stations enable our accident re-constructionists to measure even the largest accident scenes with millimeter accuracy, resulting in accurate scene diagrams.

Measurement Data from total stations is downloaded directly into the PC/software in order to get the most accurate results. Direct downloading of measurement data enables us to plot data quickly and accurately, resulting in highly accurate accident diagrams and reconstructions, completed in a fraction of the time.

Clear the road faster!

Avoid unnecessary traffic delays and road closures. Have experts collect all data for accurate analyses and reconstructions. Measurement can be supplied in a variety of data formats or as a diagram.

Data Collector

MDA’s partners use ultra portable pocket personal computers (PC). Equipped with a range of software, these weather rugged devices make them an indispensable tool for our experts when it comes to mobile data acquisition. These PC devices are utilized for measuring surface deceleration values or scene geometry, and are equipped for all weather use. When competitors are relying on old data collection methods, MDA’s partners are utilizing this pocket PC technology to minimize human error and increase data collection efficiency. This saves our clients’ money and provides professional and reliable information.

Primary Use:
Collecting evidence,
Data Collector,
Crash calculation,
Statement taking
