Bosch CDR Tool
The Bosch CDR Tool is a reliable, versatile, and increasingly powerful industry standard platform that retrieves EDR data from the vast majority of modern vehicles. After EDR data is downloaded from a vehicle, the CDR Tool software generates a detailed report that can be used by investigators in a variety of ways.
Over the past two decades, CDR reports have become an increasingly vital part of traffic investigations conducted by insurance claims adjusters and Special Investigative Units (SIUs). They are also routinely used by law enforcement agencies and accident reconstructionists. EDR data translated by the Bosch CDR Tool is admissible in court, and CDR reports have been used to identify fraudulent insurance claims, verify insurance claims, and assess vehicle speed and driver input in the moments leading up to a crash.
It’s All About the Evidence
When investigating a car accident or insurance claim, no single piece of information can paint a complete picture of what occurred and who was at fault. Law enforcement officers and insurance professionals know this fact all too well.
First-hand and eyewitness accounts of the incident are notoriously unreliable. Environmental factors and road debris can change between the occurrence of the event and the on-scene investigation. Video of the incident, if it’s available, may not capture key in-vehicle actions that influenced a crash.
Any investigation requires an analysis of the various human, vehicular, and environmental factors that may have influenced or caused the accident. Within that universe of evidence, an unbiased and reliable source of information has emerged, and even grown more powerful as in-vehicle technology has advanced: The Event Data Recorder (EDR). The EDR is a device that automatically records important technical information inside the vehicle in the seconds before, during, and after an accident or critical event. The Bosch CDR Tool retrieves the EDR data and saves it to a secure file on your computer.
