Today, the development of the automotive industry is associated with the phenomena of electromobility, autonomous vehicles, digitisation and telematics. New vehicles contain a large number of electronic control units which process and preserve digital data on the vehicle’s activity and its occupants, including communication with the external environment. This data can also be used for forensic purposes, as described in this paper. Attention is also paid to current trends, problem areas and safety risks. The paper deals with sources, classification, characteristics and uses of digital information in vehicles for forensic purposes from various perspectives, paper describes main problematic issue of Digital Vehicle Forensic. The present-day development, advancement and operation of vehicles is inseparably linked with the introduction of electronic devices and digitisation. As a result of this trend, vehicles process, transmit and save a large quantity of operational data and data connected with the activities of the vehicle’s occupants. This trend has a sharply rising character, especially in connection with the development of electric engines and an effort to create and put into operation entirely autonomous vehicles that do not require the active involvement of a driver in order to reach their established destination.
