Mediations perfect for animations

March 10, 2011

Van Kirk"Using ARAS 360, we have already successfully settled three mediation cases, preventing costly trials in each. ARAS 360 quickly allows us to create an animation consistent with the evidence, accurately representing the events as they occurred. When I needed an animated pedestrian walk pole ARAS delivered in a very short time, helping to demonstrate the energy dissipation after the crash. In that same matter, once we placed a camera into our driver’s position, we realized that the oncoming car causing the crash was totally hidden from view as it raced closely behind a second vehicle. Case settled, justice was served -- ARAS 360 is the real deal. This is an incredible tool!"
