Infotainment and Telematics

Today’s technology-driven world has crossed over to passenger vehicles, and data from navigation, communication and entertainment systems can all be downloaded. Our engineers can extract and analyze that information with advanced, and very specialized, software.

This data can be used in a number of different ways, but most commonly for:

  • Accident reconstruction
  • Criminal or civil case resolution
  • Vehicle fleet management

Infotainment vs. Telematics: What’s the Difference?

Infotainment refers to the combination of information and entertainment in a vehicle — this is the system that connects the occupant to the digital world, such as pairing mobile devices through Bluetooth or USB.

Infotainment data can be essential in cases of litigation. Data collected could include:

  • Call logs
  • SMS logs
  • Media files (audio, video, images)
  • Connected Devices
  • Contacts
  • Device Events

Telematics most often refers to navigation systems, the system that interacts with the world outside the vehicle. Data collected may include:

  • Destinations
  • Trackpoints (recorded vehicle travel history)
  • Saved travel routes
  • Velocity logs
  • Doors opened
  • Parking lights (on or off)
  • Odometer readings
  • Power events
