Automobile electronics -- doesn't it appear that there's too much?


Toyota/Lexus has problems with electronics causing uncontrolled acceleration and delay in brake activation. I'll bet they and other manufacturers have or will have similar problems, just not yet widely publicized. Electronics and software are NOT reliable, as you can observe with your desktop. And that is in mild environments, not the harsh environments automobile electronics are subject to. Every glitch in your home computer, if a similar one in a car, could cause a crash. Your programs can be backed up. Your car isn't. Yes, mechanical and hydraulic systems can fail, but they repair easy
