Message from the EiC

Welcome to the November 2017 issue of VTS Mobile World—your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter. This issue contains a report from IEEE VTC2017-Fall, held in Toronto 24–27 September. We will also introduce a member of the VTS Board of Governors members, Fabrice Labeau, who was re-elected for a three-year term 2017–19. Fabrice also reports on one of the most interesting and popular VTS member services: the Distinguished Lecturer program.

This issue of VTS Mobile World include informative technical reports on motor vehicles, connected vehicles, mobile radio, and transportation systems—all major activities of the Society.

As usual, I look forward to receiving your feedback on how we are doing and how we can better serve all VTS members in future.  You can contact me directly by email at a.jamalipour@ieee.org.  Read More...
