Global Automotive Event Data Recorder Market 2017-2021
About Automotive Event Data Recorder
An EDR is a device installed in a vehicle for recording the operation of vehicle systems for a few seconds (close to 20 seconds) during the time of occurrence of an accident. The recordings are predominantly used for assessing the functioning and effectiveness of vehicle systems during and after accidents. It is imperative to note that neither can the data in EDRs be deleted nor can the EDR (also referred to as car's black box) be disabled.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive event data recorder to grow at a CAGR of 18.06% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global automotive event data recorder market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the penetration of EDRs in the overall passenger cars market.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Event Data Recorder Market 2017-2021

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The VORAD collision warning system is an extension of the EDR system. While EDRs record information such as the host vehicles' speed, acceleration, braking, steering angle, and throttle position, the VORAD collision warning system tracks or monitors the other vehicles on the road relative to the host vehicle. This warning system is commonly used in the commercial vehicle market to increase safety. The VORAD collision warning system uses sensing technologies such as radar sensors to sense the road scenario with respect to the driving pattern of the host vehicle. Therefore, in the event of an accident, the data tracked by the VORAD collision warning system, is very useful in finding out the actions of the host vehicle relative to the driving proximity and speed of the other vehicle on the road prior to the accident.”
According to the report, road crash cases are increasing in number, and many times, the drivers are at fault. However, it is often difficult to convict or acquit the person committing the error due to the lack of evidence. In such cases, EDR data can be very useful. Courts can issue legal orders to the owners of the car asking them to reveal the EDR data and in such cases, the owners are legally required to disclose the extracted data.
Further, the report states that several sources reveal that privacy breach will continue to be a concern in the automotive EDR market. Customers are less aware of the parties to whom authorization can be given to access the data recorded by EDRs and whether such data can be accessed only if the vehicle gets damaged during a crash or can be used even when there is some sort of an accident involving the vehicle. In many cases, it is also not clear to them who is the authorized person to access the recorded data.
