i think the Scion's / Toyota's use a different brand, but i'm pretty sure they use one. I had this page book marked because it tells me where mine is. Basically they know how fast you were going, how far the Brake was pressed down, and how much throttle you were giving it 5 seconds before the crash. (it loops over itself every 5 seconds, and stops recording upon airbag deployal)
Q: What data can be downloaded from the vehicle's air bag module?
A*: Recorded data depends on vehicle make, model and year. The following data is typical of what is found on a newer GM vehicle.
* Vehicle speed (5 seconds before impact)
* Engine speed (5 seconds before impact)
* Brake status (5 seconds before impact)
* Throttle position (5 seconds before impact)
* State of driver's seat belt switch (On/Off)
* Passenger's air bag enabled or disabled state (On/Off)
* SIR Warning Lamp status (On/Off)
* Time from vehicle impact to air bag deployment
* Ignition cycle count at event time
* Ignition cycle count at investigation
* Maximum ΔV for non-deployment event
* ΔV vs. time for frontal air bag deployment event
* Time from vehicle impact to time of maximum ΔV
* Time between non-deploy and deploy event (if within 5 seconds)
How in the hell fast was he going to roll it on a turn thats on a highway? Highway turns are soooo gradual and slow already. I mean, i could see if it was a country road that had like a 70 degree turn.
But most highway turns are like 20 degrees over 200 yards or more.
