Bookout v. Toyota Motor transcript continues
A. Yes. The testing that he performed, he used data logging equipment to record, you know, things like the accelerator pedal position, both sometimes outside the car, what it looked like, electrically.
And also inside the computer there was a tool that we had from Toyota called a tech stream. He was able to monitor certain memory locations inside the computer log. Ran to see, for example, whether the computer thought the brake was pressed, in comparison to whether the brake was actually pressed and things like that.
Q. Was the data that he collected from these tests compiled into some documentation that people like you could take and read and use?
A. Yes, in Mr. Louden's expert reports.
Q. All right. And have you reviewed the data and reports of failure relating to the test that was done on the '08 and '05 Camry?
A. I have.
Q. Have you considered that information as part of your analysis in this case?
Q. In terms of talking about, from this slide, memory corruption and task death, have you pulled the piece of the data from some of testing that helps explain what you are talking about?
Q. Is that the next slide?
A. Yes, it is.
Q. Let's look at that. All right. The title here is Example of Unintended Acceleration. The first thing I wanted you to do is tell us what it is we're looking at.
A. Okay. So we're looking at a bunch of different pieces of data all plotted together in one graph. And just to generally orient you, elapsed time that is being measured across the bottom in seconds. So this particular piece of the graph begins at time 80 seconds on his clock and ends a little bit after 150 seconds, maybe 155 there.
And then on the vertical axis we see the speed of the vehicle. He was measuring that in kilometers per hour. And so we're seeing that in kilometers per hour.
I've made some notes here in miles per hour to make it a little easier to understand.
Q. Is a plot of some of data that Mr. Louden collected from some of his testing?
Q. Can you walk us through it and explain to us what we're seeing here?
