Where traveling for work is concerned, preparation is key. Factoring in the current challenges associated with COVID-19 and social distancing, integrating current technology to stay connected and work remotely becomes an essential part of the planning process. We at Kittelson LLC want to share ways we can take advantage of our technological resources to continue providing forensic transportation engineering services to our clients when working remotely. Whether it be physical inspections of sites and vehicles, meetings, preparing reports, or providing deposition testimony, KLLC has the technology that allows us to assist with meeting our clients’ needs.
Video conferencing has become a game changer for most working from home and KLLC is no stranger to this technology, having used it for years. With Microsoft Teams, we can have “face-to-face” meetings with our clients and each other, make presentations, and provide deposition testimony with high audio and video quality recordings.
Virtual Vehicle and Site Inspections utilizing our mobile video conferencing can provide live video feeds allowing clients to participate in the inspections from the safety of their home offices.
Drone technology allows us to perform inspections while maintaining physical separation, not only from each other but from roadway traffic. Drones can be used to take still shots and videos from various perspectives and collect and curate 3D point clouds of topographical features, vehicles, and full crash scenes, all while the operator remains at a safe distance.
KLLC provides the necessary precautions and safety measures to our investigators and clients attending inspections while practicing guidelines outlined by the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).
All KLLC staff are available and working together, whether working remotely from our homes or from the office. We remain at the forefront of connectivity as we navigate through these challenging times.
