Forensic science in a virtual reality

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Crime scene visualisation has evolved significantly from sketches on paper. Scenes can now be documented digitally, even with panoramic imaging. Advances in imaging technology, including 3D recording devices and virtual reality, hold tremendous opportunities for visualising and presenting crime scenes. However, they also present potentially significant pitfalls. The validation of imaging data collected at the crime scene and understanding measurements within and associated with the 3D models generated from these images are pivotal for avoiding misconceptions if this evolving technology is implemented.

This talk will explore the capability of state-of-the-art commercially available technologies to digitalise the scene of a crime and visualise it via immersive head-mounted displays, focusing on the issues relating to evidence acquisition and limitations of current viewing methods. The talk will also discuss potential future technologies.
