Automotive forensics is a branch of digital forensics relating to recovery of digital evidence or data stored in automotive modules, networks and messages sent across operating systems. Vehicles are equipped with a CAN BUS network which enables automotive modules to operate on, messages are broadcasted across the CAN BUS network and can be recovered under forensically sound conditions. Digitpol is an accredited vehicle forensics examination agency, we conduct examination on all types of vehicles and stand alone parts to undercover evidence that can be used to investigate crimes.
Vehicle Forensics: Digitpol identifies, acquire and analyse data from vehicle systems for Investigations.
We conduct forensic analysis on automotive systems. We specialize in the examination of ECU's. Clusters, Keys and built-in OEM GPS Satellite Navigation systems, known as Infotainment or Telematics systems. Our forensic team has been conducting research on automotive systems since 2009. Together with system manufactures, we have built a solid and robust method to recover forensic data from all vehicle modules. We recover identification data, crash data, historic faults and errors from all types of vehicles. We examine vehicles on-site or at our forensic laboratory.
We can recover evidence from the following systems installed in the following vehicle brands.
BMW | Toyota | Ford | VW | Audi | Skoda | Seat (RNS510)
Volvo | Mercedes-Benz | Nissan
Many other OEM Systems which run similar operating systems. To find out more we require the VIN and the right documentation.
Examples of data extracted
- Bluetooth ID from paired & non-paired phones (IMEI)
- All Call logs / Incoming / Outgoing / Missed
- last GPS fixes (last locations driven)
- Entered routes
- Other Driver information
- RDS info
- Media files
- Music files with forensic detail
- Many historic details
Recovery of Deleted Digital VIN and KM data
We specialize in recovery of deleted KM, VIN and Serial numbers from all types of coded ECU's. ABS. Airbag modules, Instrument clusters (dashboards), Keys and Navigation units.
- KM reading
- VIN & Serial numbers
- History and faults with times and KM
- Crash data, events and historic faults.
Is The Key Original? Does it belong to the claim?
Recovery of data from Keys - Transponder Chip Forensics
- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
- Transponder ID
- How many keys are coded to the vehicle, which key is it
- The last KM reading
- The Fuel status
- Vehicle data paired with the last entry
Recovery of trace routes, way points, phone records and bluetooth data.
