OXNARD, Calif., Jan. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Under the aegis of Transport Canada, Mecanica Scientific Services Corporation (Mecanica), published the Commercial Bus Heavy Vehicle Event Data Recorder Feasibility Study it recently completed in 2020 on a dedicated website, https://www.transcanadahvedr.ca. Transport Canada, based in Ontario, Canada, is the federal agency which is responsible for transportation policy and programs throughout Canada, relating to safe, secure and environmentally sound transportation. Mecanica is an Oxnard, California based scientific and engineering consulting firm that specializes in event data recorders and accident reconstruction related to vehicle crashes and fatalities. The feasibility study examines implications for developing a commercial passenger bus event data recorder (EDR) standard, focusing on the feasibility of equipping heavy vehicle event data recorders (HVEDRs) in motorcoaches, buses and school buses. This could improve accident rates, driver safety and training, and crash analysis while the data made available to transportation safety authorities can identify highway/infrastructure design issues and vehicle or system issues, as well as refine national crash and emergency response databases.
