FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D on French TV

Claude Guéant, French Interior Minister, visited the Institute for Criminal Research, to experience more about the latest technologies in crime scene analysis. There he took the chance to learn all about the Laser Scanner Focus3D. With this device investigators solve 20 to 30 crime scenes per year. Crime scenes are documented by laser scanning in 3D in a very short time without affecting the environment. Blood stains or bullet trajectories can then be analyzed in detail.

A particularly curious case was recently resolved thanks to the Focus3D. While only two bullets were shot, three dead bodies were found. The 3D scan of the scene helped to reconstruct the bullet trajectory and showed that a bullet bounced off a wall and then fatally hit the third person.


Extensive networking and learning possibilities at the European User Meeting 2012

Join us at the European User Meeting 2012 in Zurich on May 22nd and 23rd. Besides comprehensive presentations on 3D documentation and laser scanning technologies and applications you will have the chance to meet experts from your industry and share with them experiences and know-how of the latest developments.

Extensive workshops will cover topics from areas like Architecture, Heritage, Mining and tunnel construction, Quality control, Crime scenes, accident and danger zones documentation.
