Explico was retained to provide an analysis of the case. Our team of experts inspected a “sister” vessel that had the same interior dimensions but different flooring. During the inspection, Explico took photographs of the premises, surroundings, step, and room at multiple locations and from varying angles, as well as measurements of key features, and 360° walkthrough videos and photographs. A 3D immersive environment was created for this case and was based on actual measurements, photos, and videos. The immersive environment was also compared to the limited photographs provided by the individual using photo-matching techniques to identify the location where it was taken. The immersive environment created by our team allowed users in a study to more realistically observe the incident location by allowing them to determine whether or not there was a step-down or an “optical illusion” affecting one’s ability. For those who participated in the VR environment and simulation created by Explico, users saw the change in elevation between the bedroom and hallway.
