The purpose of this app is to assist in the retrieval of heavy truck “black box” event data. This app will decode heavy and medium duty truck Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) for most 1991+ truck manufacturers for the purpose of determining the year, chassis manufacturer, engine manufacturer, ECU family and validity. It will then list what software tool is needed to download the engine’s Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and if calibration and/or incident data is available. If incident data is available, it will give a brief description of the data. Major known issues are also shown in the notes section.
• Chassis Manufacturer
• Engine Manufacturer
• Check Digit Validity
• Software Tool(s) Required to Access Calibration and Incident Data

The form can then be emailed. The default address is email@example.com, but this can be changed to whatever the end user desires.
This app does not require an internet connection.
It is intended for accident reconstructionists, insurance adjusters, safety managers, and attorneys.
