Event Data Recorder Quick Reference Guide
Available in our lastest edition of On-Scene

On-Scene Vol. 23 No. 1 Fall 2019

Data Commonly Collected by Current Event Data Recorders

  • Vehicle speed
  • Collision severity
  • Brake, throttle, and steering inputs
  • Seatbelt usage
  • Airbag system status and deployment information
  • Anti-lock brake, stability control, and traction control activity
  • Rollover data
  • Advanced driver assistance functionality

Specific data recorded varies by vehicle.

Data collected from Event Data Recorders (EDRs) should be used together with traditional reconstruction techniques and can provide insights into a collision not available from other physical evidence.

EDRs have been proven to be accurate in most circumstances, but their data must be scrutinized to prevent misinterpretation.

Our experts are trained to download and interpret EDR data.  We have the expertise to properly use this technology in analyzing incidents from minor rear-end impacts to complex, multi-vehicle highway collisions.
