Message from the EiC

Welcome to the May 2018 issue of VTS Mobile World – your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter. In this issue, our Society President reflects on supporting innovation and research in autonomous vehicles, an important area for VTS.

Later on, our Standards coordinator provides an update on the new initiatives in IEEE 802.11 for V2X, broadcast services, and full duplex. You will meet another re-elected Board of Governors member, who is quite known to all as our immediate Past President. And as we near the next Society flagship conference, VTC2018-Spring in Porto, Portugal, a short preview on this exciting event is presented.

I hope you enjoy reading this issue and, as usual, I look forward to hearing from you in 2018 on how we can better serve all VTS members. I can be reached at a.jamalipour@ieee.org.  Read More...
