Vehicles interconnectivity is a thing from the future that we are experiencing today.
The United States
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and automotive OEMs set the standards for the US. These generally reference international standards for EMI limits and test methods, as defined by ISO, IEC, CISPR as well as American ANSI documents.
For the European union and for many other countries the ‘E’ mark, is a mandatory requirement. The E-mark is applied to components, separate technical units (STU), and electrical sub-assemblies (ESA) as well as the complete vehicle.
United Nations & Most Other Countries
For most countries, the relevant automotive EMC standard is United Nations regulation ECE R10, currently at revision 5, which includes EMC requirements for electric (EV) and hybrid-electric vehicles (HEV).
Such as India and China, have their own local requirements.
Vehicle manufacturers like Tesla, Ford, Chrysler, GM, Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Mercedes, BMW, Volkswagen, and others have their own standards. In many cases these standards often have stringent specifications, such as Ford CS2009, Chrysler- Fiat CS11979, or Nissan NDS02.
Wireless technologies, such as radar systems
The introduction of new wireless technologies such as automotive radar systems at 24/77/79 GHz and 5G connectivity, which can operate between 24 and 86 GHz require complete certification including verification for compatibility with each other and existing car systems.
