Mobile Documentation Service for the integrated Police System iPolSys (iPolSys mobile)
iPolSys (integrated police system) supports digital graphical simulation of accident situations or crime scenes.
Inter alia it offers CAD functionalities like create, manage and analyze points, lines or surfaces. Within this
project the system shall be extended by a mobile data acquisition tool to ensure a complete and highly accurate
documentation and to provide a stable basis for legal decisions in processes. Core element is robust GNSS positioning.
The existing desktop solution iPolSys provides the processing and graphical presentation of situations with geodetic
and photogrammetric methods. It supports the investigator in starting from data input over processing up to the
documentation and report generation of traffic accidents and offenses. In order to offer a fully integrated
system which also covers the digital data collection in the field, a mobile application with integrated GNSS
module (RTK and post-processing) is developed within this project. The main target is the consideration of
legal rules and regulations as well as documentation standards for the seamless acquisition of all required
data. Furthermore, the risk of data loss an input errors is minimized and a reliable source of information
for responsible decision-makers in processes and disputes is established.
A tablet computer represents the basis of the mobile system. It runs the data acquisition software with intuitive
user interface and utilization of all available ambient and motion sensors (e.g. take pictures, measure distances
and angles). An external GNSS receiver delivers the required raw measurement data for processing by the RTK module
of the mobile application to achieve positions of very high accuracy. The reference measurement data is delivered
by a base station with well-known position. Under limited conditions, the measured data are only recorded and later
processed in post-processing on the desktop.
With this mobile unit a high-precision position determination can be offered, building the base for detailed digital
data acquisition of accident sites or crime scenes. Referring to form and report specifications, the user should be
guided through the strategic and complete collection of all relevant data and notified on gaps by the system.
