Test and measurement solutions for the automotive industry

Test it. Trust it.

Automotive testing solutions

Autonomous driving promises users exceptional mobility and travel comfort, as well as encouraging OEMs and Tier 1s to achieve the anticipated "vision zero", the EU target of no traffic fatalities by 2050. However, their success holds a major prerequisite: diverse automotive components and functions need to be coordinated and interact without errors.

Managing increasingly complex electronic systems and industry standards such as automotive Ethernet create additional requirements for automotive testing, alongside security issues. Such challenges would be unmanageable without the introduction of innovative automotive test solutions that support the transfer of road tests to the test rig for reproducibility as well as test automation.

Our solutions for all trends in the automotive industry

Advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS) will play an increasingly important role in making driving safer and more comfortable. Such systems can save lives, but a slight error can result in an incorrect assessment of the situation. Due to the complexity of the different technologies being used, including radar, automotive connectivity, V2X communications and emergency call, comprehensive automotive testing is necessary to ensure correct functionality and maximum safety.

We offer test solutions from R&D to production that combine high reliability with class-leading performance, ensuring that Rohde & Schwarz is your trusted partner.
