The union between a point and a point takes its name from the position and involves a phase of the accident. Knowing its evolution allows investigating the applicable improvements to avoid the same errors in future cases or circumstances.

The powerful and practical solution to investigate and reconstruct traffic accidents or crime scenes, which give us the keys to avoiding them in the future, is the union of Trimble’s hardware and software solution.

With the Trimble Forensics SX10 solution, forensic teams only have to pick up the instrument and work, spending less time on the scene, minimizing the danger of being exposed on a highway to collect data after a traffic accident. Parking is fast and simple, making data capture not only more efficient, but also extremely accurate. Even point cloud viewing and verification is done on site.
