iNPUT-ACE Certified Metrologist (IAMC)

Building on their knowledge from the Operator and Examiner Certifications, students will learn how to get accurate measurements from video evidence.

The iNPUT-ACE Metrologist Certification gives students the foundational knowledge needed to get accurate measurements of distance and time from video evidence. Instructors will use the iNPUT-ACE VFR Lightboard to diagnose common errors that can come from counting frames. In the second course, students will go in-depth with using the Camera Match Overlay Tool for overlaying the video evidence on top of point cloud data for accurate measurements and calculations within a documented margin of error.

The certification track includes one 4-hour and one 5-hour course including Calculating Speed From Video and Reverse Projection: Camera Match Overlay.

Metrologist Certification Courses

Calculating speed from video course for getting distance and time from video evidence.

Calculating Speed from Video

4-Hours of Instruction

Upcoming Dates

  • Thursday, November 18
  • Monday, November 22
  • Monday, December 6

Description

Students will learn how to calculate accurate timing from video using the iNPUT-ACE VFR Lightboard instead of frame counting. This method will help students understand how to utilize recorded video while acknowledging the challenges that can complicate these calculations such as compression, rolling shutter and more. The introduction to HEX will help students understand the basic building blocks of video files and how different codecs read the metadata that can create inaccuracies in older methods of calculating speed.

Learning Objectives

  • Detailed Timing Metadata
  • Intro to HEX
  • Advanced Compression
  • VFR Lightboard Use

Recommended Prerequisite

  • iA Operator (or equivalent experience)
  • iA Examiner (or equivalent experience)

Who Should Attend?

  • Traffic Investigators (private/public)
  • Accident Reconstructionist
Reverse projection course for getting distance and time from video evidence.

Reverse Projection: Camera Match Overlay

5-Hours of Instruction

Upcoming Dates

  • Thursday, May 20
  • Thursday, July 22

Description

This class is designed to advance your knowledge of 3D rending and re-construction by introducing the iNPUT-ACE Camera Match Overlay Tool which allows video evidence to be overlayed on top of point cloud data allowing for accurate measurements and calculations within a documented margin of error. Additionally, students will gain the ability to measure object locations through Reverse Projection and 3D laser scan geometry.

The content for this class will be delivered in two parts: First, students must watch a 2 hour, pre-recorded video that focuses on theory. Second, students will attend the live, hands-on session with the instructor.

Learning Objectives

  • Camera Match Overlay
  • Integrating with 3D Modeling/Point Clouds
  • Correcting Lens Distortion
  • Matching (Registering) Points
  • Margin of Error Calculations

Recommended Prerequisite

  • iA Operator (or equivalent experience)
  • iA Examiner (or equivalent experience)

Who Should Attend?

  • Traffic Investigators (private/public)
  • Accident Reconstructionist
