Crash Reconstruction Analysis

The Human Factors and Vehicle Safety Program uses a variety of technology, including video and data event recorder, to reconstruct the events leading to a crash. The technology allows us to see all of the events leading up to, during, and after a crash (pre-impact, impact, and post-impact). In some studies we also draw on police crash and medical examiner site reports to fill out the complete picture of the crash event.
