This disclosure describes a robotic forensic tool that includes sensing probes for performing automated forensic analysis. The robotic tool can support multiple sensing probes that are mounted such that they can hover over the device under test (DUT) and perform measurements. Tools are mounted on the robotic cantilever which enables navigation across a device under test to provide measurements of different physical properties of the device with minimal human intervention. Measurements can provide statistical analysis to drive regions of confidence and to provide inferences regarding the devices under forensic investigation. This setup includes a probe holder that enables its attachment to a robotic arm and adjustment of the probes while it scans the device. The probe tool includes an optical sensor that guides navigation over a device under test. An augmented 3D overlay is utilized to visualize the results via a visual image feed.
