Paper: The use of data obtained with the Bosch Crash Data Retrieval Tool

Christopher Dunn, AITS February 2021

The use of data obtained using the Bosch CDR tool is widespread in the USA and common within the EU. Access to CDR data is not widely available in the UK and there is a lack of awareness of the potential of this additional strand of evidence in reconstruction. This paper describes a typical vehicle fitment and examines some ways in which the data may be used. It is intended to give some awareness of the limitations found within the data and to discuss some techniques that may be available in appropriate circumstances. The examination of CDR data should only be performed by suitably qualified analysts. It is hoped that this paper may give some appreciation of what the Analyst may, and may not, be able to do, and why.

EDR: First Step EDR approved by the GRSG.

Hans Bot and Jan Paul Peters, January 2021

We would like to inform you that the first draft regulation for EDR,  developed by the Informal Working Group IWG EDR / DSSAD, has now been approved by the parent committee GRSG.

The IWG has drafted two documents: a first with 41 data-elements and a second with an additional 23 data elements that will become mandatory two years later, to allow the car industry more development time.


This first draft has the same 41 data elements as the US regulation CFR 563 although many of the optional data elements have become mandatory in this new draft. (See document ECE-TRANS-WP29-2020-123rev1e.pdf).
At the same time, an amendment to the first draft has been submitted with 23 additional data elements. These additional data elements have an extra transition time of 2 years before they becoming a mandatory requirement. 


These additional data elements are Safety belt status, rear passengers, Tyre Pressure Monitoring, System (TPMS), Longitudinal and lateral pre-crash acceleration, Yaw rate, Traction Control Status,  AEBS status,   Cruise Control System,   Adaptive Cruise Control Status,  VRU secondary safety system deployment,  Far side-impact center airbag,  Lane departure warning system status,   Corrective steering function (CSF) status, Emergency steering function (ESF) status, Automatically commanded steering function (ACSF) and Accident emergency call system status.
(See document
ECE-TRANS-WP29-2021-058e.pdf with the 41 and the 23 additional data elements combined)

The two documents have now been forwarded to the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29) so that they can be considered and hopefully approved as UN Regulation in March. 


After adoption by WP29, The European Commission can draft the EU Delegated Act needed to make EDR mandatory in Europe as foreseen in the General Safety Regulation (2019/2144).  The EU Delegated Act will refer to the UNECE Regulation on EDR, complemented with requirements that are not foreseen in the UNECE Regulation, like retrieval, privacy, and security. 


The 41 data-elements will enter into force on the dates foreseen by General Safety Regulation (2019/2144). These dates are for new type-approval (new models) on the 7 of July 2022 and for new registrations on the 7 of July 2024. 


The additional 23 data elements will enter into force two years later: for new type-approval (new models)  July 2024 and for new registrations on July 2026.  Note: these dates apply to passenger cars and light-duty vehicles. EDR for Heavy goods trucks and buses will be introduced in 2029.

THE TAKE OVER

International Security Program

EUDARTS is one of the initiators of a unique global security project.

Hans Bot, December 30, 2020

 

Eudarts is one of the initiators of a unique field lab security project that parallels the developing 3-season international drama series "The Take Over".

The series begins in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, where ethical hackers take over control of a self-driving bus. Step by step this relatively small hack grows into a gigantic hack in which water works (bridges, water locks and weirs), traffic systems (traffic lights and traffic information systems) and transport systems (subway, ferries) in various Dutch and Belgian cities are not spared.

 

Subsequently, the ethical hackers themselves are hacked and the so-called hack virus spreads all over Europe with all its consequences. The chaos is complete when these are once again taken over by political hackers active worldwide.

Pre-production of the drama series is expected to begin this year. All the digital vulnerabilities used in the series will be inventoried, repaired, secured within the project and published immediately with the release of the series.

In this way, we try to prevent the series from becoming a manual for the malicious hackers in the near future. We know that governments, organizations and institutions in various countries are not ready for these digital public incidents. There are no protocols for police control rooms and there is not yet adequate software and tools to prevent such public hacks.

It is clear to everyone that significant cyber incidents or cyber attacks will take place on government agencies, defense and high-tech companies now and in the near future (list CSIS - Center for Strategic & International Studies).

If you think you can make a unique and active contribution to the content of the script, the solutions and / or the security of the digital vulnerabilities, please let us know: hans@eudarts.com

The last EUDARTS CDR Technician / Analyst courses of 2020 in

the UK, Poland, Israel, and Belgium are a fact.

Jeroen van Essen  December 2020

 

The CDR courses in these countries are a fact. The courses were organized by EUDARTS, AITS, GDTECH, and CrashData. The trainers share their knowledge and experience of the European EDR/CDR Technology with the students from all over Europe. The course gave the students the necessary Technician & Analyst information; To download the crash data, to identify any case-critical information, the reliability, and accuracy of this information, and also the use of Freeze-Frame data in accident investigations. Finally, everybody passed their exams. You can find the new CDR Technicians/ Analysts in the UK, Poland, Israel, and Belgium on the EXPERT PAGE

The Dutch National Police purchased software packages from our Digital Analyst software program.

Hans Bot December 2020

 

The Dutch National Police has now purchased 22 software packages from our Digital Analyst software program. The software assists the Forensic Accident Reconstruction Departments in the analysis of data from EU approved digital tachographs. The latest version introduces support for Smart Tacho (Generation 2 tachographs). VU data from the older Generation 1 tachographs and Smart Tacho's can now be imported and analysed. Smart Tacho data also introduced a new GNSS (GPS) positioning system to show the location of the vehicle at the start and end of a work period and also after every three hours of accumulated driving by any driver. This data can be shown on a Google Map by right-clicking on anything within a Daily Activity record item in the left data pane and choosing the View Location option. More information
