UAVs, commonly referred to as drones, are revolutionizing data collection for accident reconstruction.
At Walton & Associates, we are quick to incorporate the latest technology when it has the power to aid in the accuracy and efficacy of accident scene data collection. Driven by the continued refinement of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or drone technology, our experts realize the power of incorporating aerial videos and photos into the accident reconstruction process.
We leverage one of the industry’s most sophisticated flying cameras, a DJI Phantom 4 Professional, to quickly collect the most accurate data for our clients. Using this technology, we are able to collect high resolution 4K Ultra HD photographs and video of the entire accident scene in a very short period of time. Drone coverage gives a unique perspective and can be used to create high resolution scale diagrams, and 2D and 3D animations.
Our decades of experience has taught us that sometimes the clues that best explain the accident are not easily visible from the ground. A drone enables us to conduct investigations under all weather conditions while gaining broader views usually possible with traditional procedures.
