Abstract—Technology has a great impact on human
civilization. In order to bring the technology to meet its
requirement, a system is developed. A system is a collection of
elements or components that are organized for a common
purpose. Through a system, technology is able to meet its
requirements and benefit humans. In terms of crime
investigation, previously, most of the crime investigation
processes had been done manually. However, Asante (2013) had
developed a simple application, which concerns the time of
death estimation. However, this application was not a fully
automatic system and was unable to give a proper contribution
to the forensic science field and the time of death estimation.
Thus, the Post-Mortem Interval Estimation System (e-PMI)
was developed to assist in estimating the time of death by
considering rectum temperature, ambient temperature, weight
of corpse, layer of corpse’s clothes, condition of corpse, and the
condition of air and water. This system is expected to become
the base system in estimating the time of death in order to
produce a more reliable and better result.
Index Terms—Technology, system, time of death.
