1. A method in an electronic processing system comprising a memory and one or more processors, the method comprising:

  • receiving, at the electronic processing system, sensor data representing information collected by a sensor (i) located on or in a vehicle and (ii) configured to sense an environment external to the vehicle, wherein receiving sensor data includes receiving a first plurality of data points indicative of a plurality of respective states of the environment external to the vehicle at a plurality of respective times;

    receiving, at the electronic processing system, external data that (i) was received by the vehicle from a handheld mobile communication device of a pedestrian external to the vehicle via a wireless link and (ii) is indicative of objects sensed by the handheld mobile communication device, wherein receiving external data includes receiving a second plurality of data points indicative of an additional plurality of respective states of the environment external to the vehicle at a plurality of respective times;

    receiving, at the electronic processing system, synchronization data indicating a temporal relationship between the first plurality of data points and the second plurality of data points;

    storing the received sensor data, the received external data, and the received synchronization data in the memory;

    generating, via the one or more processors, an animated re-creation of an event involving at least one vehicle using the stored first plurality of data points, the stored second plurality of data points, and the stored synchronization data; and

    causing the animated re-creation of the event involving at least one vehicle to be displayed.
