It Has Come To This: Jaguar Land Rover To Test Vehicles For Electromagnetic Compatibility


As cars start becoming more and more like “computer on wheels,” Jaguar Land Rover has taken the necessary step to protect their upcoming vehicles from possible electromagnetic interference.

The British luxury brand just showed off the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) laboratory at Gaydon in the U.K. The test facility will ensure that all its vehicles will meet all current and future legislation and quality standards for connectivity and electronics.

The all-new Range Rover Sport, which launched in May, was the first vehicle to undergo testing at the in-house facility.

A critical aspect of vehicle performance, EMC is the ability of electrical equipment and systems to function correctly in their electromagnetic environment. It works by limiting the unintentional generation, propagation, and reception of electromagnetic energy to reduce the risk of unwanted effects such as electromagnetic interference.

Jaguar Land Rover’s new vehicle laboratory features two anechoic chambers: an electrically ‘quiet’ rolling road that enables engineers to test vehicles at speed, as well as equipment to assess the performance of individual components, such as batteries or electric motors. Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, 4G, 5G, adaptive cruise control, wireless charging, and blind spot monitoring are all examples of vehicle services and features that the facility will test for EMC.

With industry advances set to increase the number of electric powertrains and the range of digital and cloud-based services on vehicles, from Software-Over-The-Air updates to autonomous technology, testing for EMC is crucial to delivering quality, legal, and customer satisfaction. This new facility demonstrates Jaguar Land Rover’s commitment to giving customers the most advanced in-vehicle connectivity as the business accelerates electrification through its Reimagine strategy.

  1. Does computer on wheels sound good? Or is it better to stick to ICE vehicles and why?
