Crash Data Retrieval (CDR)
We’re able to offer a full Bosh CDR (Crash Data Retrival) report which allows us to collect the Event Data Recorder (EDR) directly from many vehicles involved in accidents. We can test any compatible vehile with an OBD port where the vehicle can no longer be powered.
The data that we collect varies from manufacturer to manufacturer but will typically include road speed, steering input, braking and throttle inputs and seats occupied for the seconds leading up to the deployment of the airbag. Some manufacturers will also store data above a certain threshold despite there being no airbag deployment.
This process is non-destructive and only a copy of the data is taken which can then help in fraud detection, confirming authenticity and staged accident discovery.
