Nova Scotia RCMP is the only police force in Atlantic Canada using Robotic Total Stations to measure and store data at collision scenes. This technology allows Analysts/Reconstructionists to complete work more efficiently and open up roads more quickly following a collision.

This system only requires one operator. The tracking system maps the accident scene which is downloaded to a CAD system that can be viewed as a recreated image of the serious accident scene.  It tracks and records data from the operator through a camera/ GPS computer.
