本車両には、車両の制御や操作に関するデータなどを記録するコン ピューターが装備されており、各機能の作動時や操作状況[により]{LLL}、主に 次のようなデータを記録します。

I want to understand what により here implies.

My understanding: The vehicle data is recorded by computer for control and operations of the vehicle and for each operation function time and operation status data is primarily recorded.

My Issue: により meaning is "by means of". So, does the primary vehicle operation function time and operation status is primarily recorded and the control and operations are recorded as a result, or is it vice-versa?

The ~により means "depending on~~".

Some examples:
「状況により」「状況によって(は)」"depending on the circumstance"
「場合により」「場合によって(は)」"depending on the situation"
「時と場合により」「時と場合によって(は)」"depending on the time and situation"
「文脈により」「文脈によって(は)」"depending on the context"
