NASA to help probe unintended auto acceleration

The Feds own GM and Chrysler. The Feds will do and "objective" evaluation of Toyota's problem. No conflict of interest. No shading the results to slam Toyota and profit the government owned GM and Chrysler.
No conflict of interest at all. <snicker, snicker>
I have some ocean front lots in Arizona that I'll sell the gullible-cheap.

Good!
There are certain "disturbance" problems with electronics in space which NASA has overcome a LONG time ago.
So tons of experience there. They will greatly help to speed up the "learning curve" of the "new to electronics" automotive industry.
I've read that if you use the wrong design of spark plug wires, this can cause EMI problems with vehicle systems - clearly there is not enough shielding in automobiles from EMI if this is the case.
And shielding costs money. Something the automotive industry would be opposed to (until NASA shows them the way!).

Definitely true, if you use the wrong ignition cables (in some models) you can transmit an objectionable amount of RF energy. The old Kettering setups could function like spark gap transmitters of a century ago.
No doubt NASA has engineering expertise. But I hate to think what this will cost if the government throws them a bone and we pay for it.
For a scientist, I am not in favor of much more NASA spending. We dont need to go to Mars..
In fact we dont even need to go back to the moon. We've been there and no one was home.
People argue about the wonder fallout from the space race. BS.. If you want to invent a microwave oven, then put research dollars in microwave ovens.
NASA today, IMO, is just a governmental money pit.
