    Electromagnetic simulation is becoming more important in the automotive industry as the use communication systems within the vehicle are becoming more complex. These systems include blue tooth integration with mobile phones, AM-FM and TV antennas and GPS receivers. In addition to these requirements the radiation hazard that these electrical systems can pose on the human body can also be assessed.


  • EMC Programme Management
