What does ADR mean?

ADR stores data from all of the car's key sensors as well as two FIA-specific accelerometers. These enable the FIA to use the ADR as an aircraft-style black box recorder to collect accident data. If the car is involved in a major collision with forces exceeding 18g, the ADR will activate a medical warning LED light on the cockpit top to alert marshals of the severity of the accident, allowing them to provide appropriate care to the driver.
