INT. EUDARTS CDR Technician and Analyst certification courses
Tesla information & EDR technology is added to the
EUDARTS CDR Analysts course.
EUDARTS EDR Analyst Course
Due to the phenomenon COVID 19, we are forced to postpone all our classroom courses. We tried to convert the course so that we could deliver it digitally with Microsoft Teams. However, it turned out to us that we had to lose so much in quality and plan so many days to be able to give the course that we decided not to do this. The EDR Analysis course must meet the mandatory 32 study load hours and if we have to do this digitally, the course lasts 8 days of 4 hours and we cannot do practical exercises. This is not feasible for the students.
If you are nevertheless interested in the EDR analysis course, send your name and email address to email@example.com . We can then make a student list per country and you will receive a message from us when a course can be given again and we can schedule you.
If you have a location where a COVID 19 proof course can be given of at least 10 people, we would like to hear from you and we can schedule a course.
EUDARTS EDR Analyst Kurs
Aufgrund des Phänomens COVID 19 sind wir gezwungen, alle unsere Unterrichtskurse zu verschieben. Wir haben versucht, den Kurs so zu konvertieren, dass wir ihn mit Microsoft Teams digital bereitstellen können. Es stellte sich jedoch heraus, dass wir so viel an Qualität verlieren und so viele Tage einplanen mussten, um den Kurs geben zu können, dass wir beschlossen, dies nicht zu tun. Der EDR-Analysekurs muss die obligatorischen 32 Lernstunden erfüllen. Wenn wir dies digital durchführen müssen, dauert der Kurs 8 Tage mit 4 Stunden und wir können keine praktischen Übungen machen. Dies ist für die Studierenden nicht machbar.
Wenn Sie dennoch an dem EDR-Analysekurs interessiert sind, senden Sie Ihren Namen und Ihre E-Mail-Adresse an firstname.lastname@example.org . Wir können dann eine Studentenliste pro Land erstellen und Sie erhalten eine Nachricht von uns, wenn ein Kurs erneut gegeben werden kann und wir Sie planen können.
Wenn Sie einen Ort haben, an dem ein COVID 19-Proof-Kurs mit mindestens 10 Personen angeboten werden kann, würden wir gerne von Ihnen hören und einen Kurs planen.
EUDARTS EDR Analisten-cursus
Door het fenomeen COVID 19 zijn wij genoodzaakt om al onze klassikale cursussen uit te stellen. We hebben geprobeerd om de cursus om te bouwen zodat we hem digitaal konden geven met Microsoft Teams.
Ons bleek dat we dan echter zoveel aan kwaliteit in moeten boeten en zoveel dagen moeten inplannen om de cursus te kunnen geven dat we besloten hebben hier van af te zien.
De EDR Analyse cursus moet namelijk aan de verplichte 32 studiebelastingsuren voldoen en als we dat digitaal moeten doen dan duurt de cursus 8 dagen van 4 uur en kunnen we geen praktijkoefeningen doen. Dit is niet haalbaar voor de studenten.
Indien U toch interesse heeft in de EDR-analyse cursus stuur dan uw naam en emailadres naar email@example.com.
Wij kunnen dan een studentenlijst maken per land en dan krijgt U van ons bericht wanneer er weer een cursus gegeven kan worden en dan kunnen we U inplannen.
Mocht U zelf een locatie hebben waar een Covid 19 proof cursus gegeven kan worden van minimaal 10 man dan horen wij dat graag van U en kunnen we een cursus inplannen.

new CDR Tool web presence
Hans Bot June 26, 2020
Bosch is pleased to announce a new CDR Tool web presence at www.BoschCDRTool.com. This new global landing page is now the official CDR Tool website and replaces the links from the large CDR tiles on the current Bosch Diagnostics site (www.boschdiagnostics.com). All CDR Tool related links previously accessed via Bosch Diagnostics are now available from the www.BoschCDRTool.com site!
Bosch is a world leader in Event Data Recorder (EDR) information and imaging technology. Since 2000, Bosch Crash Data Retrieval (CDR) products have been trusted internationally by law enforcement, crash researchers, auto manufacturers, and government agencies to access EDR information on a wide range of passenger cars, light trucks, and SUVs.
EDR : Automated/Autonomous and Connected Vehicles (GRVA).
Hans Bot , June 2020
Here is an update of the progress of the regulations regarding EDR and DSSAD. Progress halted due to the Corona crisis: the session in Washington (at the end of March) was canceled and therefore it took a while to find a way of working. They now have 2-weekly 2-hour online sessions, and work is underway on further proposals. This is difficult, negotiating online is very difficult, but they are slowly working towards a result.
Status DSSAD for ALKS (logging of Lane Keeping System actions).
A version of the DSSAD text had already been delivered during the Tokyo session (January) and has now also been discussed in the GRVA (Groupe Rapporteur Vehicle Automatic, the parent group for DSSAD). Most elements have been approved, and the text has therefore largely been taken over as a paragraph in the ALKS regulations. The ALKS regulations are on the agenda for discussion in the WP.29 on June 23/24.
The ALKS regulations, with the DSSAD description in paragraph 8, can be found at https://www.unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/trans/doc/2020/wp29/ECE-TRANS-WP29-2020-081e. pdf
Discussions on the EDR are much more diverse, and it has taken a long time to find a reasonable online working method. The assignment from WP.29 was to deliver a First Step EDR at the November session, plus a document (roadmap) for the Next Step EDR. This means that a First Step EDR regulation must already be submitted to the GRSG (Groupe Rapporteur Securite Generale, our parent group for EDR) July 1st This may still be worked on in Q3, but no "major" adjustments or new elements may be included.
Partly because of time constraints and divergent views, the Presidents have now chosen to focus on what they do agree on. The basis is the US CFR 563 scheme, this is a good scheme, but more than 10 years old and in need of modernization. In any case, there will be a number of adjustments and expansions that they can agree on internationally. However, due to the time pressure, it is quite possible that some of our European wishes will not be honored, but will be transferred to the Next Step EDR.
To get an idea of the content of the discussions, you can look in the following folder:
The document SG-EDR-06-01 EDR-Working-Draft.doc is the provisional version of the regulation, the other documents are proposals from OICA, China, and a number of European parties.
“Digital Vehicle Forensics” seminar University of Ljubljana (UL) Slovenia.
March 6, 2020: The Faculty Mechanical Engineering (FME) of the University of Ljubljana (UL) Slovenia and the EVU-SI organized an informative educational seminar in the field of “Digital Vehicle Forensics” (DVF) for the current EVU expert witnesses.
The seminar, the candidates will be informed about the field of DVF tasks and challenges, the expert knowledge and levels of qualifications required to perform DVF, based on which upon passing the examination they would be appointed as expert witnesses by the Slovenian Ministry of Justice.
During the seminar, the candidates were informed about DVF, tasks and challenges, the professional knowledge and qualification levels required to perform DVF, on the basis of which they are appointed as experts by the Slovenian Ministry of Justice when the exam is passed.
On behalf of Hans Bot, EUDARTS trainer Jože Škrilec presented the EDR / CDR technology, the CDR training courses and the developments within the EDR / DSSAD working group.

The Dutch National Police, the Netherlands Vehicle Authority and the Department of Waterways and Public Works (RWS) have taken the initiative to submit a request to the TRAN committee of the European Parliament to also apply EDR in PTW vehicles. By means of a draft, it will be urged to add the category L3 (motorcycles) in the implementation of Article 6 of the General Safety Regulation - data recorder for incidents.
EDR-DSSAD-04-05 Consolidated Review of Contracting Party EDR Activities & Way Forward Netherlands
1. Review of the existing national/regional activities EDR National activities of the Netherlands
• Accident Reconstruction and Analysis. By national authorities like National Forensic Institute, Police VOA (Traffic Incident Analysis), Rijkswaterstaat (Road Management Authority), RDW (Registration and Type Approval Authority), SWOV (Scientific Research traffic Incidents).
• Fraud investigation. Fraud investigation by insurance companies and RDW.
• EDR for motorcycles. The Police are performing a lobby (at the EU and TRAN, supported by the FIM) to improve and speed up the EDR for motorcycles within the General Safety Regulation (in many accidents in the Netherlands motorcycles are involved).
• Data Taskforce. An international coalition is working to distribute SRTI (Safety Regulated Traffic Information) data so that it can be reused by other vehicles. When an accident happens, this information can also be used as SRTI data.
2. Way forward for EDR Way forward for EDR of the Netherlands
• Since Motorcycles are involved in a lot of accidents, the Netherlands would like to extend the scope of the EDR with motorcycles as soon as possible.
• Since pedestrians and cyclists are involved in a lot of accidents, the Netherlands would like to extend the scope of the EDR with pedestrians and cyclists as soon as possible.
Kees Duivestein / Jan Paul Peters will present the paper "Event Data Recorders and Powered Two-Wheelers" at the upcoming IFZ conference in Cologne.
EDR : Automated/Autonomous and Connected Vehicles (GRVA).
Hans Bot , February 2020
To achieve the implementation of the GSR, TRL has been entrusted by the European Commission with a task to provide technical support in the development of the regulation text. The objective of the Commission is to achieve a high level of harmonization among the Parties, based on the text stipulating the collection and in-vehicle storage of a wide range of collision-related data elements, for both conventional and automated vehicles, and providing for appropriate privacy-by-design requirements. The Commission expects the Regulation to be endorsed by the WP29 in November 2020. This is necessary to take the future UN Regulation into account while drafting the implementing measures under the GSR. After November 2020, the work should continue on the provisions on EDR for heavy vehicles, required in the EU as from 2026.
GRVA's priorities include:
Safety and security of vehicle automation and connectivity:
(See the Framework Document on Automated Vehicles)
Functional requirements ("FRAV")
Validation Method for Automated Driving ("VMAD")
Cybersecurity (and software updates)
EDR / Data Storage System for Automated Driving (currently)

General Safety Regulation has been published
Hans Bot / Jan Paul Peters Delft, The Netherlands, 2019, December 16
EDR mandatory in 2022 Event Data Recorders in new cars will be for new models from 6 July 2022 and for new cars from 7 July 2024. This is the consequence of the publication of the GSR. For the official text of the 23 languages see:
The unofficially called General Safety Regulation has been published as regulation (EU)2019/2144 in the Official Journal of the EU L325 on 16 December 2019. According to article 20, the Regulation will enter into force the 20th day after the publication. That means that from the 5th of January 2020 the Regulation is directly applicable to all citizens and enterprises in the EU as European law. The regulation will require the equipment of ADAS systems, pedestrian protection and Event Data Recorders (EDR) in new motor vehicles.
The regulation has foreseen a number of transition periods. The first phase including EDR will enter into force for new type-approvals from 6 July 2022 and for new registrations from 7 July 2024 as far as passenger cars and vans concerned. For trucks and buses, these dates are 7 January 2026 and 7 January 2029.
For the second phase, applicable to advanced emergency braking for pedestrian and cyclist and for advanced driver distraction warning systems, the dates are 7 July 2024 resp. 7 July 2026 for all categories. The technical requirements for EDR and the different ADAS systems will be published later by the European Commission in a so-called delegated act.
Article 6 of the Regulation stipulates that these technical requirements have to be ready 15 months before the first application date, which is 7 April 2021. The technical requirements for EDR are at this moment prepared by an informal working group at the UNECE World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29). The European Commission, as well as the authorities from many countries, including EU Member States, the USA, China, Japan, NGO’s and Manufacturers, participate in this working group. Differences in priorities, safety philosophies and above all cultural differences have to overcome before finding a consensus.
The aim is that the draft requirements are ready for adoption by WP29 in November 2020. That would allow adoption as a delegated act by the European Commission, before the date required by the regulation (April 2021). To achieve this schedule and avoid a delay in the introduction of EDR, the working group is discussing a two-phase introduction of EDR: in 2022 a first phase based on the current US requirements plus some easy to agree on amendments and the second phase with all parameters for ADAS systems in 2025.
International Road Safety Award
Just before the publication of the regulation, the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) and the European Commission received the International Road Safety Award from HRH Prince Michael of Kent for providing the evidence for the adoption of the 2019 Pedestrian and General Safety Regulations. Since 2014, the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), has worked with the European Commission to assess the feasibility, costs, and benefits of over 50 safety measures to update mandatory new vehicle safety standards in Europe.
Bringing together all stakeholders, the team identified a package of measures that offer maximum casualty benefit while being cost-effective for society. This package, which will be incorporated into the Pedestrian and General Safety Regulations and is predicted to save 25,000 lives in EU-28 over the next 16 years.

EUDARTS group and AnalyzerPro announce cooperation
Hans Bot / Jozef Skrilec & Matthias Schmidt December 2019
AnalyzerPro, software for accident calculation and analysis is a tool designed for forensic experts, police forces and insurances. It unites all parts of software-based accident reconstruction into one app: Design of sketches, the kinematic calculation in various modules and 2D as well as 3D depiction come together. Furthermore, there is collision analysis in different methods and even a computer-optimized collision analysis algorithm implemented. The latest development of AnalyzerPro has focused on the implementation of different kinds of readable data, such as DDD digital tachograph files. The next logical step is the analysis of retrieved Bosch CDR data.
We kindly ask all experts to send us their .csv files in order to get as much information as possible on all different kinds of cars.

Development of electronics in Motorcycles
will facilitate EDR-capability
Jan Paul Peters and Kees Duivestein, April 26, 2019
In Europe, Jan Paul Peters and Kees Duivestein started a tour to Head Quarters of the major Motorcycle OEM’s. As it seems EDR currently isn’t a major topic in the Motorcycle Industry, although the potential contribution to safety and reducing casualties on European roads certainly isn’t neglected.
For now upcoming implementation as the (Delegated) Regulation (EU) Nr. 134/2014 of 16 December 2013 attracts more attention, especially the IUPR (In-Use Performance Ratio) with regard to the Euro 5 environmental performance of motorcycles.
The Regulation will be effective in 2024 but there is still no picture of "how", in particular, the PEMS (Portable Emissions Measurement System), which is quite a challenge for motorcycles for practical reasons.
But the technical consequences such as the OBD for Motorcycles also implicates steps further to EDR-capability. For one of the OEM's, some actions are set to get the complete overview of models with EDR-capability.
Forensic researchers of the Dutch Police force will keep this in mind in case relevant accidents with these models will occur in the near future. With MODARTS we will continue our efforts to get the full picture of required specifications for Motorcycle EDR.
