TitleEvent Data Recorders (EDRs) in Australia: a new source of crash data
AuthorsDoecke SD
Year2017
TypeConference Paper
AbstractIn recent years Event Data Recorders (EDRs) have allowed public access to pre and post-crash data from some Australian vehicles. The Centre for Automotive Safety Research (CASR) began to download EDR data from vehicles in 2014 as part of its ongoing in-depth crash investigation activities. This extended abstract describes the data provided by the 15 EDR downloads to date. EDR data provides pre and post-crash information on a range of variables that are useful for road safety research. These include, but are not limited to: travel speed, impact speed, belt use and brake use.
