Abstract

Prior to the implementation of computer equipment and software engineering into an expert practice, the relative position of participants of traffic collision in the roadaccident analysis was determined by creating a graph-analytical model. The modern foreign software package makes it possible to simulate the mechanism of traffic collision development at its various stages but they are complex and licensed which means they are quite expensive.

This article considers examples of the study of traffic collisions that occurred in conditions of limited visibility using ТАSolver software package developed at National Scientific Center «Hon. Prof. M. S. Bokarius Forensic Science Institute». Using the graphic-analytical method, this software package determines the distance at which the vehicle was located from the place of collision at the moment of danger for further movement. The use of ТАSolver software package is possible to determine the relative position of both a vehicle and a pedestrian in the event of a collision, as well as several vehicles at the moment of their collision. ТАSolver software package allows to quickly and easily simulate the situation of traffic collision that occurred due to an object that limited visibility.

The article purpose is to improve the quality of examinations and expert studies, reduce export’s labor costs, as well as increase the probative value of an expert’s opinion which will be facilitated by the use of ТАSolver software package for the study of traffic collisions that occurred in conditions of limited visibility.
