Who Should Attend?

This webinar series is ideally suited to Engineers, Team Leaders, Engineering Managers and Directors in the automotive industry working on antennas, communication and navigation systems, EMC, ADAS radars, and PCB design and industrialization, who are required to deliver innovative products with outstanding electromagnetic and connectivity performance in shorter timescales.

Webinar Topics

Vehicle Antenna Simulation and Optimization | May 24, 2023 – 3pm (CEST)

Part 1 will cover simulation driven design of vehicle antennas. By means of several simulation examples – considering 4G/5G, V2X, BT, FM/DAB, keyless-entry applications – antenna and connectivity performance evaluation will be demonstrated. A special focus will be on optimization methods to improve antenna design and antenna positions in the vehicle.

Automotive Antenna Integration and Virtual Test Drive | June 7, 2023 – 3pm (CEST)

In part 2, antenna integration analysis with numerical simulation will be discussed. Typical integration scenarios and challenges such as optimal placement of antennas behind plastic parts will also be covered. In particular, this webinar aims to explain the evaluation of antenna vehicle positions in virtual test drives using propagation models in urban, sub-urban and rural scenarios.

Automotive EMC Simulation | June 14, 2023 – 3pm (CEST)

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the focus of part 3. Numerical simulation for typical EMC problems – such as radiation or crosstalk at cable harnesses, or emissions from electrical power trains – can help to identify and analyze potential EMC issues at an early stage and find corrective actions. A digital twin for vehicle immunity tests will be presented to better understand the different exposure situations of EMC tests on a component and vehicle level. Furthermore, methods for shielding effectiveness analysis will be described.

Radar, Composites Materials and Machine Learning | June 28, 2023 – 3pm (CEST)

In part 4, advanced topics for electromagnetics will be presented. After an overview on radar simulation on different integration levels, the numerical treatment of modern anisotropic composite materials will be explained, followed by a discussion on use cases in CEM. Typical antenna and EMC examples will be used to illustrate the use of regression, classification, clustering, dimension reduction and evolutionary learning in electromagnetics.

PCB Verification for Reliable and Safe Automotive Electronics | July 5, 2023 – 3pm (CEST)

PCB verification is the focus of part 5. PCB verification identifies and suggests corrections early in the design stage. Through verification, users check a pre-prototype layout design against geometrical design requirements and best practices. As an outcome, the risk for product functional, electrical, and assembly issues is reduced.
