NASA, National Research Council To Investigate Toyota Accelerator Flaws And Electronic Controls

NASA will examine Toyota Motor (NYSE:TM) accelerator flaws and electronic vehicle controls as the U.S. continues its probe into incidents that are linked to about 51 deaths, according to a Bloomberg report.

The National Research Council will also investigate unintended acceleration and electronics in vehicles from all automakers, according to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

The results are expected to take about 18 months from the National Research Council and NASA results are expected to be out "probably sooner."
