Webinar: Portable Advanced 3D Imaging for Footwear and Tire Impressions

A webinar on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 (2 - 3:30 pm ET) will explain the principles and capabilities of a fully automated portable system with an easy-to use-graphical user interface (GUI) for shoe and tire impression capture.

The presenters have four prototype systems ready to be evaluated by interested examiners or practitioners, providing opportunities for users to interact with the system and provide feedback to further improve the technology.

The entire hardware system includes a digital complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) camera, a digital-light-processing (DLP) projector, and a laptop computer. Captured images are processed to create a 3D surface map as well as a color image that is 100% aligned with the 3D surface. 3D data can be immediately visualized on the screen for monitoring capture quality, or saved to digital storage media.

Detailed learning objectives:

– Familiarize with one advanced 3D imaging instrument specifically for tire and shoe impression capture
– Familiarize with the principle behind such an advanced 3D imaging technology
– Learn how to use such an advanced imaging technology for evidence collection

Court Case Update

FINGERPRINT EVIDENCE went through a nearly three-year ordeal in the New Hampshire court system, but eventually emerged unscathed. On April 4, 2008, the New Hampshire Supreme Court unanimously reversed the decision of a lower court to exclude expert testimony regarding fingerprint evidence in the case of The State of New Hampshire v. Richard Langill. The case has been remanded back to the Rockingham County Superior Court.
