HVE-CSI • Crash Reconstruction Software
Fast • Accurate • Validated

HVE-CSI is a version of HVE designed specifically for law enforcement officers charged with reconstructing crashes. HVE-CSI provides the fundamental reconstruction and simulation capabilities used to investigate a crash by including two well known reconstruction software tools, EDCRASH and EDSMAC. These tools have been extensively validated, and results have been presented and accepted in courts worldwide for over 20 years.

HVE-CSI helps officers determine vehicle speeds at loss-of-control and impact, identify the causes of the crash and evaluate if any traffic safety laws have been violated. HVE-CSI creates extensive reports and simulation movies, allowing the reconstructionist to quickly complete an analysis, document their work and move to the next case. HVE-CSI's ease of use and extremely affordable price make it an attractive option for the entire crash reconstruction team.

HVE-CSI allows the user to quickly input and process the information for the crash by providing an integrated series of Editors shown in the composite image below:

  • Vehicle Editor - Use the Vehicle Wizard to create and quickly modify a generic vehicle to match your actual vehicles.

  • Environment Editor - Enter the dimensions of your crash site aerial photo, drawing or Google Earth map and HVE-CSI automatically builds a scaled surface with your image. You can then work directly over your actual crash site evidence and instantly compare your simulation results. It's that easy!

  • Event Editor - Set up your EDCRASH and EDSMAC runs by entering positions, velocities, driver controls and crush damage measurements. Use the Event Controller to reset the event, change your inputs, and quickly analyze alternative scenarios.

  • Playback Editor - View the EDCRASH and EDSMAC text reports, variable output spreadsheets, graphical vehicle trajectorys, damage profiles, and important references to support your work. You can also produce simulation movies to incorporate into your presentations.

  • HVE-CSI users wanting to improve their skills using HVE-CSI are contacting HVE Training Partners for assistance. Training is also available through the The Institute of Police Technology and Management (IPTM) in Jacksonville, Florida. IPTM is offering their Advanced Traffic Crash Reconstruction with HVE-CSI course on April 25 - 29, 2011. For a fee of $995, students receive training on the use of HVE-CSI and keep their own copy of HVE-CSI after the course. The course is designed for experienced law enforcement and private traffic crash investigators, claims adjusters, engineers, attorneys, safety officers and military investigative personnel. For more information about this course and to sign up for it directly with IPTM, please visit the appropriate page on the IPTM website using this link - IPTM-HVE-CSI.

    HVE-CSI is the choice of law enforcement reconstruction teams that need to work efficiently, with great accuracy and confidence in the results of their reconstructions. Equip your entire team with HVE-CSI by contacting EDC Sales or calling 503.644.4500.
