Inspection of the Vehicle’s Systems
The inspection of the vehicle’s systems is aimed at finding out whether the systems of a specific vehicle were properly functional at the time of the accident. In the course of the investigation, all parts of a vehicle’s system that can influence the ability to exert control of the vehicle are examined, as well as the security features.
On the basis of this inspection, it can be determined if any faulty system has been damaged as a result of the accident or if it had been defect already before the accident happened.
At the Institute of Forensic Science, we examine the vehicle’s various systems as well as the various fluids it carries. From the results of these tests, conclusions in the following areas can be drawn:
» The proper functionality of the vehicle’s systems
» The maintenance status of the vehicle
» The factors causing fractures of the various systems
