An area of our expertise that is often overlooked is that of tachograph analysis. We have recently improved this area and invested in a forensic microscope to compliment our existing facilities. The microscope is linked directly to a computer. The data obtained from the analysis can be printed out in a line graph format to show the time, distance travelled and speed at which the vehicle was travelling at any particular point of the recorded journey.
This information shows the time taken to carry out a recorded activity in hours, minutes and seconds, the distance that the vehicle travelled between the two activities, the speed of the vehicle during time between the two activities and the rate of acceleration or deceleration of the vehicle, again between the two activities
The graphical interpretation of the evidence allows it to be easily understood.
