Using Ford EDR Pre-crash Stability Control System Data

This article focuses on the ability of the accident reconstructionist to use stability control systems event data recorders (EDR) to calculate the: (1) speed at impact better than with pre-crash speed data; (2) distance to impact after first brake application or steering input; (3) lateral distance a vehicle moved during an erratic steering event base on stability control lateral acceleration or yaw rate; and (4) the change in approach angle at impact relative to straight down the road.
