Advanced EDR Data Analyst: August 5-9, 2024: Tucson, AZ sponsored by the Pima County Sheriff’s Department


Working first with Vetronix to help develop the initial “Vetronix CDR Tool Training Certification” course in 2000 and then working uninterrupted with Bosch since 2003, the Collision Safety Institute continues to offer unparalleled, comprehensive, and detailed training and support on the Bosch CDR Tool data for reconstruction applications. The current content of the CDR Data Analyst’s Course covers the very latest in crash data from all supported manufacturers and is up-to-date with the latest version of the CDR Tool software. This course expands on that information and knowledge base.

Instructors:  W. R. “Rusty” Haight, Shawn Gyorke, Mike Ditallo

In addition to what would otherwise be traditional EDR data from the core OEMs associated with the Bosch CDR Tool, this course explores the use of data retrieved using the Tesla EDR Tool, Tesla CAN Bus (diagnostic) data, the Hyundai and Kia EDR Tools, and active safety system data from various manufacturers.

This course, the Advanced EDR Analysis course, is designed to act, in limited part, as an update for those who have attended a CDR Tool Data Analyst Course within the last ~2 years and then supplement the initial Analyst Course by introducing specific advanced topics and other methods and tools for data retrieval beyond that retrieved with the Bosch CDR Tool.

Over 5 days, the CDR Tool Data Analyst course can reasonably only cover a finite amount of information. Adding additional case problems designed to illustrate specific concepts not to mention trying to address EDR Tool data from non-Bosch CDR Tool systems are beyond the scope and time limitations of the core 5 day CDR Tool Data Analyst course.  Through concept presentation followed up by case problem examples and hands-on activities, the Advanced EDR Analysis course is designed to extend the reconstructionist’s familiarity with the Bosch Tool retrieved data as well as data retrieved using the Hyundai, Kia and Tesla EDR Tools and Tesla CAN Bus data.

There is no hands-on “downloading” activity in this class since it is assumed that those in attendance have recently completed the Technician course and understand that process along with the underlying concepts of data storage in the EDR subcomponent, CDR software troubleshooting and related error messages and their solution(s). For that reason, there is no need to bring a complete CDR Tool to this course. However, attendees must have a computer because course materials and exercise data sets are delivered digitally. Activity in this course is focused on reading, understanding, and applying a CDR Tool data translation report to a normal, situationally complete reconstruction.
