Remote keyless entry system testing

Vehicle access control (UWB, BLE)

Key technology for modern vehicles

Remote keyless entry has been a standard feature even in lower-end passenger cars for some time now. New models are increasingly equipped with locking systems where proximity is sufficient to enable the car to be started, allowing the key to remain in the driver's pocket.

The technology for these wireless systems is also changing. The use of ultrawideband (UWB) technology is on the rise. The technologies for remote keyless entry (RKE) differ greatly from each other. Therefore, the requirements for suitable test solutions are also quite diverse.

Rohde & Schwarz offers tailor-made test solutions, including hardware, software, conceptual design and support, from a single source.
