The article reports that automotive testing firm MIRA Ltd. has opened a heavy vehicle electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) chamber at its headquarters in Nuneaton, England. Manufacturers will be able to use the chamber to assess the EMC performance of whole vehicles, rather than assuming the various radio frequency (RF) systems work satisfactorily together. MIRA has recruited five full-time staff to run the facility.
