Topics: Accident Reconstruction
By attending this seminar, attendees will be able to:
This course is geared toward individuals interested in video and photographic analysis, including engineers, accident reconstructionists and investigators, and law enforcement. Individuals working in the field of autonomous vehicles and remote sensing will also find the concepts presented relevant since the photogrammetry principles taught in the course are the same used in the cameras and sensors installed on vehicles.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
