Over the past ½ century, there have been many advancements that have really changed the practice and education of Crash Investigation and Reconstruction. The use of a total station, crash simulation software, portable scanning, the use of a portable drone, and of course vehicle technology with EDR data. Amongst these advancements, in my humble opinion, is the work done by Dr. Muttart.
His efforts in conducting studies, gathering on-point scientific data and the creation of IDRR has greatly improved the science of Crash Reconstruction. Dr. Muttart’s work has and will continue to improve classroom teaching and reconstructionist abilities for objective scientific analysis.
It was my pleasure to recommend him years ago to join the staff at Northwestern University CPS and I highly recommend that all in this industry take Dr. Muttart’s classes a few times over the years and utilize IDRR when appropriate.
