The EM-safety project aims at increasing public confidence in the safety of fully electric vehicles (FEV) regarding electromagnetic fields (EMF). In the EM-Safety project there are ten partners, representing industry, institutes, and universities. The partners and the focus areas in this project are briefly described under Partners and Project details.
Depending on the magnitude and frequency of the field, exposure to an electromagnetic field may affect both electronic components and biological matter. International standards exist to ensure that the products placed on the market are safe. Electromagnetic safety includes two important aspects that concern both product exposure and human exposure:
Basic restrictions - Electric fields
Reference levels - Electric fields
Reference levels - Magnetic fields
