Crash Data Retrieval

Dean Tekell Consulting now offers Crash Data Retrieval imaging services.

Event Data Recorders, or EDRs store a vehicle’s status data around the time of a major event, such as an impact, sudden stop, or sudden movement. Depending on the type of vehicle, EDRs may be called Airbag Control Modules (ACM), Sensing Diagnostic Modules (SDM), or Restraint Control Modules (RCM). (These EDRs are sometimes erroneously called “Black Boxes.”) The Crash Data Retrieval results can be used to help unravel the order of events in vehicle collision cases.

To learn more about how Crash Data Retrieval with EDRs may help you in your Accident Reconstruction needs, check out this helpful video from the Crash Data Group:

Traffic Engineering

Dean Tekell Consulting exists to provide advice on the safe, efficient, and environmentally compatible movement of people and goods on streets, highways, parking lots, sidewalks, bikeways, and transit systems.

Depending on your business or need, Dean Tekell Consulting can help you determine how customers and clients are likely to drive, ride or walk to get to a site, through a site and away from a site. This is done with the application of proven engineering study techniques in combination with a knowledge of driver, pedestrian, traffic and vehicle operating characteristics.

Municipalities typically use Dean Tekell Consulting, through their consulting engineer, to resolve traffic engineering problems that occasionally arise in smaller towns. Residents in towns of all sizes request assistance from their local government for the control of speeding traffic, the correction of "dangerous" intersections, problems with poor traffic signal timing, and the installation of new traffic signals. The lack of public transportation is also a critical deficiency in smaller towns. These services are not requested often enough, in one town, to justify the maintenance of traffic or public transportation expertise by a general civil engineering consultant. Dean Tekell Consulting is a value-added service that a traditional civil engineering consultant can offer their municipal clients without adding the expense of a full time traffic engineer to their staff. These same consultants find Dean Tekell Consulting useful for the swift preparation of safe and efficient work zone traffic control plans required in road design projects for State and Local Governments.
