Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Event Data Recorders (EDR)

This vehicle is equipped with an EDR. The main purpose of an EDR is to record, in certain collision or near collision-like situations, such as an air bag deployment or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding how a vehicle's systems performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle dynamics and safety systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less. The EDR in this vehicle is designed to record such data as:

  • How various systems in your vehicle were operating;
  • Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened;
  • How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal; and,
  • How fast the vehicle was traveling.
  • Sounds are not recorded.

These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which collisions and injuries occur. NOTE: EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a nontrivial collision situation occurs; no data are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data (e.g. name, gender, age and collision location) are recorded. However, other parties, such as law enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying data routinely acquired during a collision investigation.

To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required and access to the vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer and NISSAN dealer, other parties, such as law enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information if they have access to the vehicle or the EDR. EDR data will only be accessed with the consent of the vehicle owner or lessee or as otherwise required or permitted by law.
