JLR New EV Test Facility    

This space age-looking room isn’t a sneak peek at Stormzy’s hi-tec recording studio, it’s Jaguar Land Rover’s brand new facility to test the next generation of vehicles for electrical and radio interference.

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

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.
