The freedom on the roads could soon be over with the further advent of electronics in cars and the surveillance possibilities it opened up. Toll and navigation systems provide an entry point, advanced accident data recorders or. -The use of an accident data recorder (UDS) or a driving data recorder (FDS) for cars is another matter.
