Advances in Automotive Performance Verification Testing for 5G and EMC Applications

Unique Program on 5G and Connected Vehicles Headlines IEEE Webinar


CEDAR PARK, Texas, May 28, 2020 ETS-Lindgren experts will present the emerging technology topics of 5G communications and connected vehicles during a 90-minute webinar hosted by the Chicago Chapter of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society (VTS).  The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, June 10, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm CDT.  Speakers include ETS-Lindgren's Jari Vikstedt, Director, Wireless Solutions, and Garth D'Abreu, Director, Automotive Solutions.  With today's modern electric, hybrid, and autonomous vehicles becoming increasingly reliant on wireless communication for safe, reliable, and robust performance, the webinar program is unique in featuring these two related technologies.  Following the presentations, Dr. Alvin Chin, Chair of the VTS Chicago Chapter and Senior Machine Learning Researcher at BMW Technology Corporation, Chicago, will moderate an interactive Q&A session.


Garth D'Abreu will present "EMC and Wireless Test and Measurement: Challenges and Solutions for Connected Vehicles."   Automotive trends in wireless capabilities for high data streaming, incident detection warning, anti-collision/adaptive cruise control radar, wireless entry, and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-cloud (V2C) communication are just a few of the features impacting the functionality of today's modern vehicles.  Vehicle level antenna pattern measurements as well as EMC measurements are essential to verify the performance of these Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.


The second presentation by Jari Vikstedt, "The 5G New Radio: Implications for EMC and Antenna Testing," will review the challenges of wireless technologies and their tight integration with various electronic, computer, and communication devices, including those increasingly found in connected and autonomous vehicles. This presentation will discuss possible solutions to address the challenges generated by the 5G New Radio and mmWave applications.


The Los Angeles Chapter of the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society (EMCS) is a co-sponsor of the webinar.  The extended webinar was organized as a courtesy to IEEE members and prospective members in order to provide quality education during the challenging times of COVID-19. There is no charge to attend.  Registration information, complete presentation abstracts, and speaker biographies are available here.  Note the "Advances in Automotive Performance Verification Testing for 5G and EMC Applications" webinar will be available on-demand once the live session ends; visit for the link to the recorded webinar after June 10.
