Because of the potential for inclement weather in various parts of the US and in the interest of finding a major airline hub, the EDR User’s Summit will be held again near the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas.
The EDR User’s Summit was first held at the Sheraton North Houston from 2006 through 2013. Scheduling being what it was, the Summit moved to a different venue in 2014 but we’re happy to be back at the renovated Sheraton North Houston for 2024. A special Summit Attendee rate code EDR24 has been posted and must be used for the best rate for the period during and around the Summit. There is a hotel link on the Collision Publishing website with more information about the conference venue hotel.
No, and unlike the last hotel venue, there are more hotel opportunities and restaurants near the Sheraton at Intercontinental Airport. That said, past attendees valued (a) being close to the airport for travel expenses and (b) convenience to the conference venue as important factors in the location of the conference. Many police agencies and some companies are reluctant to allow for car rental or expensive ground transportation for their employees attending a conference.
As such, staying near the selected hub airport remains a primary consideration. Staying at the Sheraton means you’re an elevator ride to and from your room to the conference meeting room while a number of restaurants are either walking distance or a short ride share away.
It’s too early to post the final list of topics for the next Summit, however, some topics which have been set include Toyota Techstream data from a 35-year employee at Toyota, Tesla CAN Bus data interpretation and, Tesla CAN Bus data limitations and ranges, case problems based on crashes where EDR data played a major role in understanding the crash, and more. As topics and titles are finalized, they’ll be posted here at the Collision Publishing website.
As with the topics for the upcoming Summit, it’s too early to post the final list of speakers. As speakers and their presentation titles are finalized, they’ll be posted here at the Collision Publishing website.
As in the past, the EDR User’s Summit schedule will be submitted to ACTAR for CEU pre-approval but since it’s too early to post the final list of topics for the next Summit, it’s too early to see about CEUs. We believe the CEU sign in will follow the i-Attend Self Check-In process ACTAR uses and is as identified at here.
Yes, the Collision Safety Institute CDR Tool Technician Train-The-Trainer program will be offered on 4 February, 2024 at the conference Hotel from 8am to 5pm.
Those who qualify for the course will receive the CDR Technician Train-The-Trainer program which includes the Bosch CDR Tool Technician course, the Tesla EDR Technician Course, and the Hyundai and Kia EDR Tool Technician Course, handouts, instructor PowerPoint, instructor notes, exams, exam keys and additional handout material for the Trainer to distribute to those attending their course. The course is then licensed to the instructor for 2 years.
Travel, ground transportation, and lodging are the responsibility of those attending the Summit. During the Summit, breakfast (3 days) and lunch (2 days) will be provided at the Summit venue. Evening meals are “on your own” for attendees at the restaurant in the hotel, across the street, or a short ride share away.
