There are 90 seconds of speed and position data before the incident triggered, as well as 30 seconds after the incident. Additionally, G-forces on all 3 axis as measured by the accelerometer can be viewed for…

IVMS and post-event accident investigations

A major benefit of the Digicore IVMS system is that it has the ability to provide second-by-second data for purposes of accident investigations. IVMS units record data a number of times per second, but not all of this is sent back-to-base as this will generate a significant quantity of data,…
