How Does it Work?

The Universal Traffic Recorder uses a two-channel surveillance system for front and rear that can be controlled via a Smartphone app for Live Viewing, Data Management, and setting adjustments.​

The Modes

The Universal Traffic Recorder has three different surveillance modes. Each features different functionalities tailored to different driving and parking situations that you may find yourself in.

Standard Mode

  • Normal mode for Recording
  • The recording starts when the engine is turned on, and stops when the engine is turned off
  • Ring buffer, which means when the storage inside the recorder is full, it will delete the oldest data to make space for the new data recordings (this function is across all three modes)
  • The data is stored on an SD card and will not be overwritten by Event or Parking modes

Event Mode

  • Impact triggered recording
  • If the acceleration sensor exceeds it’s threshold, the recorder will immediately begin recording the relevant data
  • Sensitivity of the acceleration sensor can be adjusted via the Smartphone App
  • Separate files are saved with a pre-defined length
  • Data is stored on an SD card and will not be overwritten by Standard or Parking modes


Parking Mode

  • Radar based recording
  • Record mode starts when the engine is turned off
  • The recorder remains in standby until movement is detected by the radar sensor, then the recording will start
  • Sensitivity of the radar sensor can be adjusted via the Smartphone App
  • Over 72 hours of Standby mode is possible
  • Separate files are saved with a pre-defined length
  • Data is stored on an SD card and will not be overwritten by the Standard or Event modes

The Smartphone App

The Audi Universal Traffic Recorder has a user-friendly and intuitive interface, designed specifically for the Recorder, and is available free of charge.

The capabilities of the App include live viewing, data management, car finder plus adjustments to sensors. A built-in Wi-Fi hotspot within the recorder allows for seamless transmission of data.
