Did you know the navigation, communication and entertainment systems in passenger vehicles gather data that can be downloaded later? They do, and SAMAC can extract and analyze it thanks to specialized software and training from digital forensics leader Berla.

These systems help connect drivers and vehicle occupants to the outside world, but the data they collect can prove extremely valuable in many ways.

This data can be used 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, via pairing mobile devices through Bluetooth or USB.

Data collected:

  • 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 can include, among others:

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