On-Scene – Fall 2016

You likely already know about passenger vehicle Event Data Recorders (EDRs), still sometimes referred to as “black boxes.”  You may also know that downloading and interpreting crash data from EDRs require special equipment and training.

But did you know that most heavy vehicles also have EDRs?  However, the task of accessing and interpreting the data recorded by a heavy vehicle EDR, or HVEDR, is much more complex compared to passenger vehicles.

To learn more about HVEDRs, watch for the Fall 2016 issue of our On-Scene newsletter.
