Jaguar Land Rover to test cars for ‘electromagnetic compatibility’

Modern cars are offering more and more technology and now Jaguar Land Rover claims it is the solution to make sure these gadgets won’t go wrong. The British firm has created an electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) laboratory in Gaydon, which JLR says will “help vehicles of the future meet current and future legislation and quality standards for connectivity and electronics”.

The new Range Rover Sport is the first JLR vehicle to undergo a test program at an in-house facility. The laboratory is able to test whether electrical equipment and systems function correctly under electromagnetic interference.

The laboratory consists of two anechoic chambers, a rolling road to mimic car noise at road speeds, and equipment to analyze the battery, electric motor, and other individual components.

The purpose of testing electromagnetic compatibility is to ensure that things like Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, 4G, 5G, adaptive cruise control, wireless charging will work under sub-optimal conditions.

Peter Phillips, senior manager of electromagnetics and compliance at Jaguar Land Rover, said: “The importance of testing our vehicles for electromagnetic compatibility cannot be underestimated.”

JLR said that with the growing number of electric powertrains and the range of digital and cloud-based services on vehicles, from software-over-the-air updates to autonomous technology, it is important for EMC to provide testing quality, legal and customer satisfaction. important for. ,
