Vehicle Key Forensics

Vehicle Key forensics is a branch of automotive forensics relating to recovery of digital evidence or data stored in vehicle keys and transponder chips, data such as VIN, KM, Make, Model, Last KM and Identifiers can be recovered under forensically sound conditions.

Key Forensics

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

Our Expertise

Infotainment Forensics

We conduct forensic analysis on automotive GPS systems for Law Enforcement Agencies and testing for OEM’s. We specialise in the examination of built-in OEM GPS Satellite Navigation systems, known as Infotainment or Telematics systems. Our forensic team has been conducting research since 2009 on the investigative techniques to acquire forensic data from embedded vehicle GPS systems. Together with system manufactures we have built a solid and robust method to recover forensic data.

ECU Identification

On behalf of Law Enforcement Agencies and Insurance firms, our SMV team are capable of recovering deleted forensic data from coded parts. We can recover deleted KM, VIN and Serial numbers from flash and memory chips using a method known as chip-off forensics.

  • Chip-off forensics
  • Recovered Identities
  • Recovered Deleted Data
  • Recovered KM data
Crash Data Recovery

We 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.
