ARCCA’s Dr. Jim Mason, an Accident Reconstructionist and Expert in Infotainment & Telematics Systems, was recently asked to appear on an NBC Nightly News telecast to demonstrate the types of personal data your vehicle is continuously storing about you — in most cases, without your knowledge.
While the information gathered can be invaluable to accident reconstructionists when investigating accidents, stolen vehicle and fraudulent, staged or questionable vehicle claims, many vehicle owners are unaware that their vehicles are storing information about their calls, their contacts, their navigation history, when a door was opened/closed, and even what music they listened to.
