    Project Details

    Description

    Visual technologies are transforming the court environment. This project measures the impact of interactive displays on the trial process; specifically how computer simulations and 360o crime scene reconstructions may better inform juries, but potentially increase prejudice against defendants. The project brings in the key players as industry partners - police, prosecutors and judges -- working alongside academic experts in law, architecture, media studies, psychology and criminology. Blending observation and experimental approaches, the study tracks how jurors in simulated court settings use visual evidence in making decisions, and identifies ways of using interactive technologies most effectively, while minimizing negative impacts.
