Traditional forensic examinations are usually time consuming which can be problematic when investigations are underway and quick results are needed.  Traces must be detected on-site as soon as possible before they degrade and loose forensic information important for criminal investigation. Based on the results of the FORLAB project, the RISEN project will develop a set of real-time contactless sensors for the optimization of the trace, detection, visualisation, identification and interpretation on site.

Main objective 

The aim of RISEN project will be to develop and demonstrate contactless, non-destructive, automated sensors to identify, select and label trace materials. Data will be acquired in-situ and in real-time, processed and sent to a 3D augmented crime scene investigation system to produce an interactive 3D model of the scene with position and labelling of traces and relative results of the on-site analysis, to be available at any time for several purposes in the criminal justice system. The identified traces will be digitally marked and inventoried, and a digitalised chain of custody will be established in real-time implementing mechanisms that assure data integrity over its lifecycle.
