Today's vehicles contain more and more electronics with RF technology, radio components, radars and high speed data buses. This makes it difficult for automobile manufacturers to ensure that electronic emissions remain within specified limits and that vehicles are not susceptible to external interference sources. That's why, at EMV 2020 in Cologne (Germany), Rohde & Schwarz will present EMC test solutions specifically for users in the automotive industry: the fastest CISPR-25 certification, a robust and compact BCI test system, and R&S AdVISE version 5, which keeps a close eye even on vibrating display elements during EMS tests.
The automotive industry is investing large sums in electromobility. In doing so, it is focusing not only on developing battery-powered cars but also on equipping its plants with modern production technology.

Aside from well-established OEMs, customers also include many new manufacturers of battery vehicles.
The Open Manufacturing Platform (OMP) has expanded, with new steering committee members and new working groups established. OMP is an alliance founded in 2019 to help manufacturing companies accelerate innovation at scale through cross-industry collaboration, knowledge and data sharing as well as access to new technologies. The OMP was founded under the umbrella of the Joint Development Foundation, which is part of the Linux Foundation.
The global industry leader in creating unique, moving experiences for the automotive world, and HERE Technologies, a global leader in mapping and location platform services, today announced that they have teamed up to integrate HERE location intelligence with the Cerence Drive portfolio to bring advanced AI-powered mobility assistant offerings to the automotive industry.
