Jaguar Land Rover shifts even more focus into electric cars and connectivity in a bid to meet current and future legislation and quality standards.

05 Aug 2022 | International News : U.K.

The Jaguar Land Rover group has taken a deeper step into the electrified future of greater connectivity. It is doing so by opening a new facility to test the next generation of vehicles for electrical and radio interference.

The Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) laboratory at Gaydon in the U.K. will ensure future vehicles meet current and future legislation along with quality standards for connectivity and electronics. The first vehicle to undergo this bespoke testing programme at the in-house facility is the new Range Rover Sport, which launched in May.

EMC is a crucial element of vehicle performance, which concerns the ability of electrical equipment and systems to function correctly in their electromagnetic environment. It limits the unintentional generation, propagation and reception of electromagnetic energy to reduce the risk of unwanted effects such as electromagnetic interference.

The 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.
