Purpose and goal

The project objectives are: Increase knowledge among the partners of how electromagnetic interference degrade the performance of digital radio communication Develop methods for characterisation of interference Develop methods for determining interference impact on digital radio receivers Develop simple simulation models Gain input to contribute to standardisation Systems to analyse are 3G, 4G, GNSS (GPS), WLAN (802.11g), C-ITS (802.11p). All objectives in the project were fulfilled.

Expected results and effects

The result from EMCCOM will: Increase the reliability of measurements at ECU level. By using reliable test methods on ECU level, the chance of detecting design flaws in early stage is greatly increased. By using modelling the results from the ECU measurements requirement specifications at ECU level can be written more exact. Increased knowledge behind requirement levels leads to cheaper components since extra margins can be avoided. Balancing against other attribute requirements can be performed with confidens. Cost reductions by means of a more effective verification.

Planned approach and implementation

The five partners in the project decided before the project started to create a common working group that met physically every week to work with the practical parts of the project. This has been a success. The cooperation have given this group other tasks to solve among the partners. Apart from this it has been very good for the working climate.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
