Black Boxes is the colloquial term of recording devices. This term was first used for flight recorders on airplanes, although their actual color has always been yellow and/or bright orange.
Today the concept has been adapted to be used in cars, trains, boats and even bicycles.
The device (an Event Data Recorder or Voyage Data Recorder) collects information such as video from the front and the back of the car, as well as information about the speed, temperature and application of breaks.
There are several patents and different devices. Some are working constantly, overwriting the last few minutes, until an event (such as a collision) occurs. Some are triggered by the event.
The data are easily recovered if the recorder is intact. However it may be not easy to recover something, when the recorder is damaged during the accident.
Strathclyde Forensics can help you recover safely, forensically sound data from such recorders. The data can then be presented in any form it is required.
Such investigations are of particular interest to people involved in crashes, insurance claims and investigations.
