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

Virtual Reality

A fully engaging user experience

An immersive experience for both analysis and visualization, Virtual Reality (VR) offers a range of capabilities, from virtual site visits and detailed inspection to interaction with a customized recreation of an incident. VR is able to immerse a user in an environment, providing them with a full range of view of virtual surroundings. This provides a useful tool for examining 3D scans of a site or object and allows for the use of reconstruction techniques to be implemented from within a virtual representation in 3D space.

Virtual Reality can take an interactive experience to another level. Customized accident reconstructions can be experienced as if a user is actually witnessing an accident first-hand, from within a 3D environment and from any angle. Controls and capabilities can be developed that are specific to a case and affect how an event is depicted through multiple scenarios. VR can bring an experience to life.

Experts in the Field

Our forensic engineers are experts in accident reconstruction, failure analysis and cause & origin. Our forensic engineers work directly with our in-house animation department to create state-of-the-art forensic animations for use in court, arbitration, mediation or settlement negotiations.
