Crash Scene Reconstruction Using an eBee Drone

This video is a fly-through animation of a 3D point cloud, which was produced by a senseFly eBee mapping drone. The point cloud depicts a real-life crash scene, over a mile long, in which two vehicles crashed while drag racing. According to accident reconstruction specialist Greg Gravesen, who managed this project, “This animation allows the viewer to get a unique perspective of the entire crash scene. It would have taken days to use a terrestrial scanner to complete this project. This type of exhibit is really effective evidence. It gives juries and clients a unique perspective that traditional methods, such as photography, just cannot compete with.”
