CDR data can be used to compute pre and post impact speeds using Vector (EDR-Momentum) sending that data to 360 LM for further analysis. The 360 LM  information can be sent directly to SMAC (Simulation) by clicking on a few buttons. 

The Time-Distance EDM module will use EDM or CDR speed information to analyze the data and plot the deceleration curves for the vehicles unavailable in any other program.

Glimpse the power of REC-TEC Platinum  

Crush5 with Vector Integration computing the pre-impact and post-impact speeds of both vehicles

Crush 5 - Vehicle 1

Crush 5 - Vehicle 2

Crush Crush5 - Maximum Engagement

Crush 5 (1-click) data transfer to 360 Linear Momentum

360 Linear Momentum Graphics (Plane of Impact)

360 Linear Momentum (1-click) data transfer to Vectors (EDR-Momentum) with Formulae displayed

Easy (1-click) transfer of both input and computed data from one module to another is a hallmark of REC-TEC Platinum.  It not only serves to verify the computations using completely different methodologies, it generates additional data resulting in a more comprehensive picture of the event in question.
