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.
NASA to help probe unintended auto acceleration
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
NASA today, IMO, is just a governmental money pit.
