FORENSIC 3D METROLOGY
"the application of scientific measurement to the investigation and prosecution of crime"
Mr. Voitel has extensive experience in the 3D documentation and analysis of traffic and crime scenes. This includes the post processing of 2D and 3D data captured from drones, video cameras, 3D scanners and others. These data sets have subsequently been used to analyze critical incidents and create animations and visualizations to assist during investigations and eventually trial proceedings if necessary.
Traffic Collision Investigation & Reconstruction
Mr. Voitel also has extensive experience in the investigation and reconstruction of traffic collisions. His experience began as a motorcycle traffic enforcement officer with the Fullerton Police Department in 1994. He began testifying as an expert in 2000 with the Denver Police Department Traffic Investigations Unit and honed these skills working for a private engineering firm for many years.
Forensic Video Analysis
Mr. Voitel recently began teaching the Metrologist
Certificate course online for Axon Investigate (formerly iNPUT-ACE). This course emphasizes the fact that most
video has a variable frame rate, and making sure that the variability does not negatively affect an expert's analysis
is critical. He also teaches how to take measurements
from video using 3D point clouds.
