Knott Laboratory provides forensic engineering and animation, Civil & Structural, and Fire & Explosion Investigation services to reconstruct accidents.

Interactive Animations

A uniquely customized 3D environment

Interactive Animations grant the ability to fully control important elements of a case in real-time. Using these presentations, a testifying expert can completely control a visualization by changing the camera view, adjusting key attributes, switching between hypothetical events, and much more. The level of detail and type of interactivity is tailored to the specific needs of the case.


Interactive Animations Semi Bus AccidentAn interactive 3D application provides a virtual environment for exploration of an accident scene, vehicle models, individual products and more. The technical expert, attorney, or adjuster actually drives the presentation. Unlike traditional models or flat photo displays, the 3D aspect also keeps the visual feel of reality which adds to the overall impact of the presentation. Interactive Animations are perfect applications for court, arbitration, mediation, intellectual property disputes or settlement purposes.


Shooting incidents occur often but thanks to the cruiser cam, we can determined better what caused them.
