Inside Automotive Event Data Recorders
The 1.5-hour presentation will include a brief history of Event Data Recorders (EDRs), the various modules motor vehicles have that record collision-related data, and the equipment necessary to obtain the information properly and accurately.
These and other questions will be answered as we discuss the truths and myths surrounding EDR’s and the proper terminology used in association with EDR technology.
The attendee will be provided tips on knowing what to look for in EDR data outputs and being able to tell if the report you receive from law enforcement or an opposing expert is the complete, uncorrupted file.
The presentation will end with actual case studies to highlight this often-overlooked goldmine of information.
