      The main problem with wired data transmission is exposure to electrical noise. In environments with extremely high noise levels, special care needs to be taken in order to accurately send data between two or more devices. In the case of motorsports, extreme noise on any critical data lines can cause engine failure, putting the driver’s safety at risk. The purpose of this paper is to explain effective construction techniques for noise reduction in a wiring harness, as well as to review how certain serial data protocols will handle errors in harsh conditions.
