Using Computer Reverse Projection Photogrammetry to Analyze an Animation 1999-01-0093
Computer reverse projection photogrammetry (CRPP) is a technique of using computer software to obtain information from images. Use of this process can facilitate the analysis of a computer animation that depicts the reconstruction of an accident. This paper defines several digital image analysis techniques with a focus on CRPP and illustrates methods of employing their procedures. Specific aspects of animation validation and a description of the information needed to accurately complete an analysis also are described. In addition to discussing specific types of animation validation, the computer software and hardware required to perform analyses for a variety of platforms are mentioned.
