VEHICLE DATA COLLECTION AND EVENT DATA RECORDERS
Your Hyundai vehicle is equipped with many high technology, electronically controlled systems thathelp to ensure your vehicle operates properly and provides the performance that you expect. Thesesystems utilize computers to monitor the operation of various systems and components and help tocontrol their operation. These computerized system operations are wide-ranging and involvecomponents to reduce emissions, to continuously evaluate the readiness of the airbag and seat beltpretensioner systems, to determine when the airbag and seat belt pre-tensioner systems should bedeployed and then to activate the deployment, and if equipped, to operate anti-lock braking, tractioncontrol and electrical stability control to assist the driver to control the vehicle in difficult drivingsituations. These systems electronically store information that is useful to service technicians whenthey need to diagnose and repair these systems. Additional information is stored only when a crashoccurs that results in the deployment of the airbags or seat belt pre-tensioners. This type of data storageis done by devices called event data recorders(EDR).After a crash event, the airbag and seat belt pre-tensioner computer system, known as the SupplementalRestraint System Control Module (SRSCM) or Airbag Control Unit (ACU), may record some informationabout the condition of the vehicle and how it was being operated. This information consists of datarelated to seat belt usage and if there was diagnostic information in the airbag or seat belt systemsat the time that a crash occurred, and if the ACU sensed that a crash of sufficient severity occurred torequire seat belt pre-tensioner or airbag deployment.
To retrieve this information, special equipment is needed and access to the vehicle or the device thatstores the data is required. Hyundai will not access information about a crash event or share it withothers except:
o in response to an official request of police or similar government office, oro with the consent of the vehicle owner or, if the vehicle is leased, with the consent of the lessee, oro as part of Hyundais defense of litigation, oro as required by law.
