Toyota's 'Black Box' Could Hold Accident Clues


Toyota (TM) cars have a "black box". Although it's not as sophisticated as those used in airplanes, it does record data about a car's performance and activity. The box is officially called an "event data recorder" and according to The Wall Street Journal," It records vehicle and engine speeds as well as brake, accelerator and throttle positions and other data that can help determine the causes of accidents."
