Automobile Collision Reconstruction: A Literature Survey
A great number of papers have been written dealing with the characteristics of automobile collisions. In this report, the principal research methods which are used are reviewed and the major papers dealing with each method are surveyed. Computer techniques which have been developed within the past few years are reviewed, and their utility and limitations are discussed. A modular approach, in which individual computer modules are used interactively by an investigator to reconstruct an accident in separate phases, is suggested.
