Has Tesla looked at doing any additional EMI/EMC testing to confirm the vehicles will be safe for passengers that have implanted ICDs or pacemakers?
yes, as that is required by the law in most countries and probably all the countries the currently are selling the roadster
Honestly; why would it even be an issue? Because it has an electric motor? There's a smaller electric motor in every ICE car already. It's called the starter motor.
Emissions testing (not immunity) is appropriate - however, manufacturers of pacemakers and ICDs are required by law to demonstrate an appropriate level of immunity (EMI testing) to all emissions. This wasn't always true - but it is today.
Your monitor probably has much higher emissions than that efficient electric motor. Especially because distance square root reason, but also because it really is efficient, electric energy is changed to kinetic in ratio which just doesn't leave much to radiate anywhere.
Anybody wearing earplug speaker is putting variable frequency magnet inside their heads. That's a couple of thousand times closer than anything in car drivetrain, that means to reach same level of electromagnetic radiation engine would require something like couple of trillion terawatt of power which it obviously doesn't have. A cell phone in your pocket is actually a radio emitter/transmitter which means it is also several hundred times more powerful EM emitter than EV electric systems, and that also is a lot closer and still not causing any problems.
If you ask me entire "emission testing" is just BS for a reason that some pseudo-sciences have managed to get people worried.
Hey Timo, you have links to what kinda variation the EV drivetrain has versus your average cell phone for this? If I remember right, you get 10x more exposure from the cellphone than you do from the EV motor, or am I thinking of something else?
