Accident reconstruction with telematics is the process of using telematics data to understand the events that occurred before, during, and after a collision.
Telematics data is highly valuable because it provides an accurate, scientific record of events. It allows you to go beyond word-of-mouth testimony. The granularity of the data can tell you many things about the accident. Telematics makes it possible to gain a broader perspective by looking at the historical patterns for a specific driver or vehicle.
MyGeotab offers access to a number of different types of data that are critical to accident reconstruction, including the Trips History, Accident and Log Data, Speed Profile, and the Accelerometer and RPM graphs. By reviewing and analysing this data, you can verify the events of the accident.
