The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is proposing to require event data recorders (EDRs)—widely referred to as “black boxes”—on all new passenger vehicles sold in the United States. Although over 90% of the new cars and light trucks sold in the United States already come with EDRs intended to capture information about the final seconds before a crash, these are installed voluntarily by the manufacturers. This book discusses the background of automotive black boxes. It also provides issues that these black boxes create, as well as a engineering data analysis. (Imprint: Nova)
