+ - NHTSA Has No Software Engineers To Analyze Toyota->

thecarchik writes: NHTSA officials told investigators that the agency doesn't employ any electrical engineers or software engineers leaving them woefully unable to correctly investigate what caused the most recent Toyota recall. A modern luxury car has something close to 100 million lines of software code in it, running on 70 to 100 microprocessors. And according to consultant Frost & Sullivan, that number will rise to 200 to 300 million line within a few years. And the software that controls the "drive-by-wire" accelerators of Toyota and Lexus vehicles is one potential culprit in the tangled collection of issues, allegations, and recalls of many of those vehicles for so-called "sudden acceleration" problems.
