This webinar is led by ITE Transportation Forensics and Risk Management Committee.
Within the umbrella of Transportation Engineering is the subsection of Accident Reconstruction. Accident Reconstruction involves the investigation and analysis of motor vehicle collisions. By inspecting and evaluating the vehicles involved, collecting evidence from the collision scene, and extracting and evaluating vehicle black box data - engineers are able to determine what happened in a collision event.
This webinar will provide an overview of forensic analysis of transportation crashes from both a collision reconstruction and human factors perspective. Attendees will learn about common approaches from practitioners testifying in litigation. Attendees will learn about common principles of driver behavior, attention, reaction time, and decision-making, as well as technologies used in collision reconstruction and how they are applied.
- Introduce ITE members to the practice of Accident Reconstruction.
- Characterize limitations and capabilities of drivers in emergency situations, including perception-reaction time and decisions to brake or swerve.
- Identify situational factors that affect driver behavior such as visibility, lighting, weather conditions, conspicuity, fatigue, and distraction.
- Introduction to evidence preserving technologies and analysis methodologies.
