For "Fly-By-Wire" vehicles we already know the CAUSE of unintended malfunctions,
its close proximity broadcasting of digital signals by RF devices such as CELL PHONES
Its why aircraft do NOT permit CELL PHONEs onboard an aircraft that is taxing to takeoff
In USA cell phone frequency range is ~800MHz wherein wavelength = c, speed of light /
frequency, to give a wavelength of ~14". Any T-shaped FM antennae picks up this signal IF
top of T is 14" or half of the T is 7". Does a half wave antennae protrude into an auto cockpit?
Can we say "Turn Signal" wherein a 7" length of wire is connected to the CRUISE CONTROL>
When Mrs. Rhonda Smith testified in congress that her runaway Toyota dropped to 35mph after she called her husband, that "God Intervened". Sorry but her CELL PHONE intervened
NO ONE in congress nor gov't DOT asked the next logical question- When no. did you dial?
Why? Last thing gov't needs is another car co. to Bail Out as NO ONE would buy a Toyota
So we have another GOV'T COVERUP, which only adds fuel to the firestorm that Americans
are coming to the realization that "AMERICA is a BIG CORPORATE LIE"
sorry about that
Finally, a verified mechanical cause for once.
