Crash data in supported vehicles is saved in the vehicles safety modules (airbag control module, powertrain control module, rollover sensor) and recorded with the EDR functionality within that module. Numerous tests have been performed and the crash data has been recoverable in a number of extreme conditions including fire, submersion in water, freezing temperatures and more.
Ever investigated a case/claim where there were multiple vehicles involved in an in-line collision? Many times it is difficult to accurately state if the “squeeze” car (the one in the middle) stopped in time but was subsequently pushed into the vehicle by the vehicle from behind OR hit the vehicle in front and then hit again in the back. With the CDR data, you can accurately assess this information based on the sequence of “events” recorded and the “positive” or “negative” acceleration recorded.
