To aid in our analyses, NBI uses the latest technologies in the fields of accident reconstruction, biomechanics, and human factors. Commonly used technologies in accident reconstruction include electronic data recorders (EDR) which are used to download the on-board computer (i.e. “black box”) information from a vehicle, VirtualCrash and PC-Crash software which are used to develop simulations of accident and examine occupant and/or pedestrian dynamics, and a drone and FARO scanner, which are both used to develop 3-D models of a scene. In biomechanics, commonly used technologies include MADYMO which a software package used for the analysis of occupants in motor vehicle collisions, a tribometer which is used to assess the friction of a surface in slip & fall events, and helmet testing used to assess the efficacy of a helmet and potential for traumatic brain injury. In Human Factors, in addition to assessing lighting using a luminance meter, we also use the I.DRR system to help in the determination of perception-reaction timeRead more
