Vehicle Examiner, Vehicle Determination Simplified

March 17,2015 /

Vehicle Examiner /


DME Forensics is excited to announce our latest product, Vehicle Examiner. Having spent way too many hours over the years determining the make/model of vehicles, we decided it was time to streamline the process and make it easier and faster.

Proven Forensic Principles, but easy to use!

Vehicle Examiner is a web based application designed with forensic best practices in mind, while still providing the simplicity to allow you to use it for any level of make/model determination. Whether you are a forensic examiner working on a make/model determination for a robbery, or an investigator trying to identify a vehicle in a drive off, Vehicle Examiner will help you make a determination faster, and with less effort.

Find everything in one place!

We have selected more than 15 vehicle characteristics (such as third brake light location, license plate location, as well as the standard body style/number of doors) and are working through every car sold in the United States in order to put everything you need for a Make/Model determination in one place. Vehicle Examiner leverages the power of Edmunds to bring you pictures of possible vehicles directly from your search results. No more having to jump from car website to image search and back.

No more need for spreadsheets!

By searching with Vehicle Examiner, you can drastically reduce the amount of potential vehicles to review, even if the images of your unknown vehicle are very low quality. Once you have your list of potential vehicles, Vehicle Examiner will keep track of everything for you and allow you to generate reports of potential matches, and the vehicles that you have determined were not a match.

Coming Summer 2015!

We are wrapping up the primary development for Vehicle Examiner and will be starting our beta program later this spring. You can head over to the Vehicle Examiner website for some additional information. While you are there, don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter. We will be keeping you up to date with our progress and will begin looking for beta participants in April.

As always, if you have any questions or ideas, please let us know!
