Brian Man­ches­ter, Esquire is the man­ag­ing part­ner of Man­ches­ter & Asso­ciates prac­tic­ing with his father R. Bruce Man­ches­ter.  Accord­ing to their web­site:  “The Law firm of Man­ches­ter & Asso­ciates is located in Belle­fonte, PA in Cen­tral Penn­syl­va­nia.  Our cen­tral­ized loca­tion allows us to han­dle crim­i­nal defense cases through­out the State of Penn­syl­va­nia. At Man­ches­ter and Asso­ciates we under­stand when peo­ple find them­selves accused or charged with a crime, they have numer­ous ques­tions about the PA judi­cial sys­tem. We also under­stand how peo­ple can feel stressed or anx­ious and even depressed when crim­i­nal legal sit­u­a­tions occur.”  I know Brian and he is a very com­mit­ted crim­i­nal defense practitioner.

1. What the heck is going on in this picture?

2. What sort of infor­ma­tion can be gathered?

Our Geek of the Week answered:

What is happening is someone is downloading information from the vehicles  electronic data recorder “EDR”.  It is also called a car’s black box.  The EDR records speed, and breaking incidents.  Not all breaking incidents are stored.  It does not store everything that goes on in the car’s history. The data storage is limited and overwrites itself after a certain period of time that varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

The software programs that are used to download this data vary from manufacturer to maufacturer.

[BLOGGER’S NOTE: Honorable mention goes to Dan Hynes, Esquire who correctly answered: “The picture is utilizing an event data recorder/ crash data retrieval. This is a system of hardware/software that can be attached to certain vehicles after an accident. The information sent to the computer can include things such as whether the seatbelt was  on, the speed of the vehicle immediately prior to impact, and whether the driver was braking.”]
