Heavy Vehicle Electronic Control Module Data Use in Crash Reconstruction  

THIRD IN THE COMMERCIAL VEHICLE CRASH INVESTIGATION SERIES

This course will assist you with the forensic collection and analysis of event data that is available in Heavy Vehicle Electronic Control Modules (HVECM), also referred to as Heavy Vehicle Event Data Recorders (HVEDR).

During the training, you will learn how to analyze the data that is imaged from an HVECM and then apply the information to your investigation. We will explain the data that is available and can be imaged from commercial vehicles and conduct a detailed discussion of the various reports obtainable from Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Mack/Volvo, International and other manufacturers.

Finally, we will image available vehicles and show you how to use and reconcile HVECM data with other methods of reconstruction analysis as well as examine and analyze the data to determine its validity.

  • Accessing and imaging data using the recommended hardware and software
  • Latest HVECM devices and available data, including but not limited to:
    • Detroit Diesel
    • Mercedes-Benz
