Attendees will learn the basic functions and parameters of a heavy vehicle event data recorder, how they work, and what they record. They will also learn the differences between heavy vehicle EDR manufacturers, and what data is available from each specific manufacturer,  along with changes for the industry moving forward. Secondarily, utilizing real world case studies, they will learn when and what electronic data can be preserved, and how that data works in conjunction with physical evidence to provide an understanding of a potential case.
