Chapter Profile—Santa Clara Valley
Siva Uppalapati

The IEEE Santa Clara Valley (SCV) Section VTS Chapter is located geographically in Santa Clara valley (a.k.a. Silicon Valley), California. With enormous changes and innovation happening in Autonomous vehicles, Silicon Valley is becoming an Auto-Hub. It has also become a hub for many other innovative concepts in urban transportation. Leading automobile makers Tesla, Ford, Nissan, and Mercedes-Benz have established research facilities in this vicinity. 

Since 2016, the IEEE SCV VTS chapter has organized many technical events among VTS members and beyond, and is involved in collaborations with San Jose State University.
