The Role of Event Data Recorders in Accident Reconstruction

TASA ID: 1308

On Tuesday, October 11, 2011, at 2 p.m. ET, The TASA Group, Inc., in conjunction with mechanical forensic engineering expert George H. Meinschein, P.E., presented a free, one-hour, interactive webinar, The Role of Event Data Recorders in Accident Reconstruction, for all legal professionals.

In passenger cars and light trucks, Event Data Recorders (black boxes) are electronic devices that are capable of capturing information related to a crash. This technology has become increasingly recognized as another tool for use in reconstructing accidents. The stored data that is available from an EDR should be treated as evidence, indicating that preservation and spoliation issues apply. During this program, the presenter covered the following:

  • The current status of Event Data Recorder (EDR) technology in passenger cars and light trucks 
  • Acronyms and terminology 
  • The various types of crash data available from an EDR 
  • How EDR data is accessed and preserved 
  • How EDR data can be used in accident reconstruction 
  • Federal regulations concerning EDRs
