The paper refers to the project to develop two economical prototypes, of the universal on-board devices: Event Data Recorder – black box for all types of the motor vehicles, Event Data Recorder - black box for all types of the motor vehicles, registering eCall notifications. The device will record much data concerning the vehicles technical condition, the way it was driven and RTS. The recorder may be used in the passenger, company and cars with the right of way, taxies, buses and trucks. The recorder may serve the purpose of the neutral witness for the police, courts and insurance firms, for which it will facilitate making the reconstruction of the road accidents events and will provide proofs for those who caused them. The device will bring about more law-abiding and efficient driving, which will significantly contribute to decreasing the number of the road accidents and limiting the environmental pollution.
