When searching for an operational system for vehicle-damage investigation, photogrammetry is found to provide a practical solution. A system is designed featuring low capital investment and operational cost as well as providing simple operation and requiring only a minimum of data-handling procedures. This photogrammetric system is based on the stereo-camera concept and the enlargerdigitizer procedure. It utilizes primarily inexpensive off-the shelf components for both data acquisition and evaluation. This paper describes the system, its components, and operation. The results of a number of practical cases are presented and compared to those obtained by conventional means.
