Sample printouts from our Expert VIN DeCoder®, Expert AutoStats®, and 4N6XPRT StifCalcs® programs for the subject test vehicles can also be downloaded from these pages.

 

Illinois Association of Technical Accident Investigators  (IATAI) Collision Reconstruction Conference - September 16-18, 2015

The testing for the conference Consisted of 3 crash tests

The first test was a 3 vehicle impact simulating a vehicle stopped behind another at a Traffic Signal or Stop Sign, which gets hit in the rear and being shoved into the rear of the vehicle in front of it.

The second test was a Head-On impact, with the lighter vehicle tavelling at 2 times the speed of the heavier vehicle, resulting in the heavier vehicle being shoved backwards.

The third test was an oblique font-to-front impact similar to an impact between a left tunring vehicle about midway through the turn and a through vehicle.
