More ThaN Point A to B

Vehicles are more than just tools to get us from point A to point B. They are packed with technology that keeps us safe, comfortable, informed, and entertained. Even the simplest modern vehicles are a complex networks of electronic systems that must work together so that the vehicle may operate properly.

Data Generation

The average vehicle generates over one terabyte of data each day. Under normal conditions, a vehicle has over 150 Electronic Control Units (ECU’s) that are purpose-built computers designed to execute specific tasks or functions. These units collectively run on over 300 million lines of code. These systems include everything from engine control, braking systems, airbag control, and much more.

As an investigator, it is important to start to think of a vehicle as a collection of individual systems with each system possibly containing a repository of information that may be relevant to your investigation. Gateway Forensics approaches vehicles exactly that way to give you the information you need from your vehicle – whether in prosecution or defense.
