Food For Thought: Jack Leifer, Ph.D.

Video cameras – Here, There, Everywhere

Video cameras seem to be everywhere (and increasing in number on a daily basis), but what is less well known is the many ways video streams can be used. Many are familiar with the use of video for identification of people or as license plate readers. This lecture will highlight video’s other current uses such as calculation of vehicle speeds and determination of red light violations. Using basic physics and engineering principles that relate time, speed and distance, Leifer will present several case studies taken directly from his files demonstrating how video -- from a variety of different sources -- was used to either confirm or refute testimony on both sides of a case, or to ascertain how an event occurred.
