Crash Data Retrieval (CDR) “Black-Box”
Examples coming soon!
From as far back as 1994, vehicles sold in the United States have been equipped with a Crash Data Retrieval (CDR) system, otherwise known as a “Black Box”. These systems record important information such as impact speed, braking, percent throttle, seat belt status, steering wheel angle, and whether or not an airbag deployment event occurred. Vehicle crashes require full documentation and preservation of evidence. Photographing, laser scanning, and mechanical component inspection are imperative in accident reconstruction, however the CDR data can definitively determine specific crash parameters.
