Cardno has released new technology designed to help reduce man-hours required to clear an accident scene. To document and map crime scenes today, law enforcement often requires the lanes where accidents occurred to be closed, often causing major traffic delays. In addition, Cardno’s RPA platforms enable a more thorough 3D modeling and reconstruction of the accident, providing a much more detailed view of the event and surrounding scene. Using remote piloted aircraft (RPA) platforms, enables increased data collection, suggesting the best way to clear the scene and help turn a several-hour closure for accident documentation into less than 30 minutes. “One of the biggest advantages of the new system is our ability to arrive on a scene, deploy our UAV and in minutes, have the results we need,” said Renton (WA) Police Department Commander Chad Karlewicz. www.cardno.com.
