Gathering, Preserving, and Using Non-Traditional Sources of Electronic Data in Your Trucking Case
Presented By: DRI's Trucking Law Committee
Attendees will hear from an experienced Professional Engineer with extensive experience in crash data retrieval and analysis and from a seasoned trucking lawyer regarding non-traditional sources of electronic data that can be used to vigorously defend motor carriers and drivers in your trucking cases. Specifically, attendees will learn about the electronic data (other than a passenger vehicle’s airbag control module (ACM) or a commercial vehicle’s electronic control module (ECM)) that may be gathered following a collision, including infotainment systems, collision avoidance systems, ABS systems, traffic signal data loggers, and more. Additionally, the speakers will discuss best practices associated with the collection and preservation of these non-traditional sources of electronic data and how you can use the data obtained from such non-traditional sources in your trucking cases.
