Up-to date vehicles have their status data continuously recorded by ride dynamics sensors and at least temporary stored to be able to guarantee the function of currently common security and driver assistance systems. If an authorized expert has access to these ride dynamics data then his/her task is to process it such that conclusions about vehicle movement can be derived therefrom. A comparison of values furnished by internal ride dynamics sensors with those measured by well-established reference measuring instruments within the scope of this study shows that ride dynamics sensor values are able to furnish important reference points about vehicle movement before collision that in traditional accident reconstructions are usually determined by estimation only.
