When are logs reliable?
Toyota's official answer seems to be either It depends or "The data retrieved from the EDR is far from reliable", unless the data exonerates them, in which case "the EDR information obtained in those specific incidents is accurate".
There’s got to be a blog post somewhere in that.
- Did the log record what actually happened. Did the log record when something actually happened?
- Do the logs represent the events in the order that they occurred?
- Are the time stamps accurate?
- Are there gaps in the logs? If so, can we determine where the gaps are?
Unless the logs are stamped with a serial number, odds are that you cannot verify completeness.
I've never testified in court.
