The report details the results of a two part study to examine the integrity of automotive electrical equipment and to determine the electromagnetic susceptibility of automotive electronic systems. The design and failure modes for various electrical components and recommended corrective measures are discussed in the first half of the Report. The second half deals with the potential susceptibility of electronic control systems to electronmagnetic radiation and the results of a measurements program designed to determine the extent of the susceptibility of three existing systems to the electromagnetic environment. This half of the Report emphasizes the need for EMC standards and discusses various measurement techniques and means for setting limits in order to establish standards.
