Crash Data Retrieval

Crash data retrieval is a branch of digital forensics relating to recovery of digital evidence or data from a vehicle under forensically sound conditions. The phrase crash data retrieval (CDR) usually refers to retrieval of crash data from a vehicles on board computers such as Engine Control Unit, Airbag Control Unit, ABS and Safety modules. 

Digitpol experts specialise in Digital Investigation of Motor Insurance Fraud. We are experts in the analysis of “staged collisions” where a vehicle has been reported as crashed, however the collision never happened. We deploy digital forensic methods to undercover the traces stored in vehicle modules. We recover the last events such as any collisions and can identify the vehicle's engine temperature at the time of the collision, the KM reading and the time and date the collision took place. These parameters often assist claims handlers to solve or verify claims. In some cases a fraudulent claim can be detected.

 

If you are a victim of a staged crash or fake collision contact Digitpol for an examination as the fraud can be proven by digital evidence stored in vehicle on-board computers.

Keyless Theft Investigation

KEYLESS entry car theft is gaining proliferation across Europe and Asia as more criminals are using radio transmitters to perform ‘relay’ car hacks to steal high end vehicles. Car Crime Criminals are exploiting the vulnerabilities of keyless entry system using pairs of radio transmitters by capturing the signal from the car’s fob. The crime can happen close to the owner without their knowledge or by a relay attack.

Keyless entry allows drivers to open and start the vehicle without even touching the fob or even removing it from their pocket. Fraudulent claims whereby the owner provides a non-original key to the insurance company are growing. To verify the key, Digitpol can check if the key belonged to the reported stolen vehicle. In some cases the key was not from the reported vehicle.

Recover the Evidence

We work for Insurance, Legal or Police agencies to provide support with the following areas:

  • Examine the vehicle for digital traces of an accident
  • Discover by digital traces where the accident took place (2016 +)
  • Examine the key to determine the identity by digital data
  • Examine the instrument cluster to recover Mileage fraud and recover the orginal mileage
  • Mechanical examination of a motor vehicle
