Vehicles Solve Crime

FBI Director James Comey recently stated “the cell phone is probably the single most important piece of evidence you will find at a crime scene today.”  As the Internet of things (IoT) continues to evolve, these devices and platforms will come in a wide array of shapes and sizes, including systems found in motor vehicles.

From the SUV of Syed Farook used in San Bernardino, to those used in a wide array of crimes around the world, a significant number of crimes committed today involve a motor vehicle. Vehicle systems store a vast amount of data such as recent destinations, favourite locations, call logs, contact lists, SMS messages, emails, pictures, videos, social media feeds, and the navigation history of everywhere the vehicle has been. Many systems record events such as when and where a vehicle’s lights are turned on, which doors are opened and closed at specific locations, and even where the vehicle is when Bluetooth devices connect.  As such, vehicle data can be highly useful for investigators around the world.
