Aart Spek is an engineer and has more than 25 years of experience in road accident reconstruction. The first case where he combined digital and physical traces dates more than 15 years back, and he helped shaping this ‘hybrid approach’ by sharing several of his findings within the EVU-conferences. Currently he chairs the EVU’s scientific committee.
In this webinar Aart will explain how BMW allows Event Data extraction for several of its European market models, starting 2019 and up.
For older vehicles it is often found that speed data in BMW’s unique “Central Fault Memory” – called “ZFS” – that was introduced in 2008. In this talk Aart will explain how ZFS-data differs from ordinary “freeze frame data”, where it originates from, how it is time stamped and why it’s more usable for accident reconstruction. He Will show how to extract it (basically by digging for certain files on your computer after an ISTA-readout) and will discuss the findings from his validation tests.
The webinar is on 25th May 2022 at 10:00 BST [please ignore any error in the automated emails where the time might be shown as being in a different zone]
