What Your Vehicle’s Black Box Is Reporting

The Christian Science Monitor reports on growing concerns about privacy issues related to vehicle event data recorders (EDRs) or “black boxes” (although they are apparently grey in color). Vehicle manufacturers are currently not subject to uniform standards regarding the data this equipment gathers. However, information collected from the EDRs often plays a prominent role in post crash analysis, including evaluating vehicle speed, deployment of airbags, force of braking, and the use of seatbelts.
