Welcome to the second issue of VTS Mobile World in 2018—your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter. In this issue, our new President opens the door to a unique feature of IEEE: Volunteerism, which according to his note, would enable professional and personal growth.
Our Vice President—Mobile Radio also gives an update on his portfolio within VTS activities. And we introduce newly-reelected member of the VTS Board of Governors Professor Lajos Hanzo, and thus begin our series of introductions to the five members elected for the term 2018–20. You will also see the newly uploaded contents to the VTS Resource Center, plus, much more.
This issue of VTS Mobile World includes informative technical reports on motor vehicles, connected vehicles, mobile radio, and transportation systems—all major activities of the Society. Associate Editor-in-Chief Richard Yu has selected a nice article published recently in IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine on LTE-V for Sidelink 5G V2X Vehicular Communications, and provides a technical summary.
As usual, I look forward to receiving your feedback on how we are doing, and how we can better serve all VTS members in the future. You can contact me directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
