Chapter Profile—The IEEE UK and Ireland VTS Chapter
Oliver Holland, Chapter Chair

The IEEE UK and Ireland VTS Chapter was formed in 2011 by Dr. Oliver Holland of King’s College London and Dr. Keith Nolan of Trinity College Dublin. It was formed in recognition of strong interest expressed by members of VTS in the UK and Ireland in the creation of a local Chapter, noting prominent mobile communications, vehicular communications and vehicular technology research and industrial interests in the UK and Ireland.

Ever since its inception—and, indeed, inherently in the approach taken to its formulation—the IEEE UK and Ireland VTS Chapter has striven to capture the interests of both the vehicular- and communications-related technology areas, as well as the interaction between them, on both sides of the Irish Channel.
