Laser Scanners for Accident Mapping

  02/05/2012
More than half of police forces awarded funding by the UK's Department of Transport for the purchase of high-tech laser scanners have purchased RIEGL devices from 3D Laser Mapping. The laser scanning systems will be used to rapidly collect evidence at the scene of collisions, thus helping to reduce the length of road or lane closures and minimise congestion on the country's roads. Data collected by the scanners will be used by Collision Investigators to produce high-quality graphics and detailed plans of collision scenes for use in subsequent inquiries and court cases.

14 police forces out of 22 awarded funding have ordered a total of 26 RIEGL laser scanners. 3D Laser Mapping has already supplied a number of these devices and is rolling out the remaining equipment supported by a training programme. The GBP2.7 million Department of Transport funding, together with police and the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) contributions, enabled the purchase of 39 scanners by 22 forces in total.
