Message from the EiC

Welcome to the April 2019 issue of VTS Mobile World – your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletterwith a new design for easier navigation! I hope you like this new look, but please feel free to tell me your opinion about it.

In the issue, our Society President explains some of the many services VTS provides to all its members in support of their professional growth. The Motor Vehicles article introduces you to the Robotic Electric Vehicle developed by the German Aerospace Center.

These are just some of those interesting articles you will see in this issue. I look forward to hearing from you in on how we can better serve all VTS members.  I can be reached at a.jamalipour@ieee.org.  Read More...
