Simulation and Animation Solutions for Forensics


Whether you're active law enforcement or a private recon, Virtual CRASH is the ideal solution for accident reconstruction analyses. Easily incorporate your forensic evidence into your simulation environment. You can simulate or animate vehicle impacts, pedestrian accidents, commercial vehicle cases, or motorcycles. Virtual CRASH can help you quickly find the optimal solution in the shortest time.


Simulate vehicle impacts

Virtual CRASH uses an impulse-momentum rigid body dynamics model to simulate collisions between vehicles.

✔ Simulate vehicle dynamics and collisions in 3D

✔ Large vehicle database included

✔ Import and customize vehicle models

✔ Easily adjust vehicle size and inertial properties

✔ Real-time feedback from physics engine

 

Pestrian impacts

Virtual CRASH can quickly and easily simulate impacts involving pedestrians

✔ Drag and drop pedestrian model and pose

✔ Adjustable height, weight, and gender

✔Quickly visualize results

 

 

Tractor-trailers 

Simulate articulating vehicles with ease. 

✔ No limit to number of trailers

✔ Adjustable hitch position

✔ Simulate load shifting cargo

✔ Instantly visualize off-tracking

 

 

Motorcycle and bicycle impacts

The multibody collision physics model is unbelievably fast. Set up your motorcycle or bike impact scenario in minutes and get immediate results. 

 

Create awesome custom environments

Import total station data, point clouds from scanners and drones, and build surface terrains from your measurements.

With the CAD tools in Virtual CRASH, you can create beautiful scale diagrams directly within the simulation environment. 

Import your terrain mesh in 3DS or DXF format from whatever third-party application you like to use. 

 

 

 

 

Virtual CRASH 4's Total Station Surface Builder, you can construct triangular meshes directly from your total station point data

 

 

 

 

With the Easy Surface Builder tool, only in Virtual CRASH 4, you can quickly create complex terrain meshes from your point cloud data. The data can come from scanners or drones, it doesn't matter.

 

 

Virtual CRASH 4 also brings you Google Earth fully integrated into the user interface. Easily download aerial photos and terrain elevation data.

 

Generate path animations

✔ Create pure animations without using the simulation engine to control vehicle motion

✔ Specify key positions and orientations along the vehicle trajectories

✔ Export animated motion path data

 

Virtual reality videos

✔ Create 360-degree videos for playback online or using 360-degree video players.  

✔ Create top-bottom stereoscopic videos for playback using virtual reality headgear.
