Message from the EiC

Welcome to the December 2019 issue of VTS Mobile World – your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter. This is our last issue for the year, and also it will be my last issue as Editor-in-Chief.

After four enjoyable years, I am stepping down from my role as EiC of VTS Mobile World, and leaving it in the capable hands of our Associate EiC, Richard Yu. I am confident that he will deliver great issues to your mailbox going forward.

I hope in the past four years you have found VTS Mobile World to be a great source of information on Society activities and the greater world of vehicular technology. Our President will also have his final message for this year as he takes the role of Junior Past President of the Society.

As always, I am always available to hear your feedback; just send me a note at a.jamalipour@ieee.org. Happy holidays!  Read More...

A Fond Farewell!
Alexander M. Wyglinski, IEEE VTS President

I will continue to serve on the Board of Governors as Junior Past President, to ensure a seamless transition to our next President—Abbas Jamalipour—and also to continue advancing the goals of IEEE VTS.  Read More...
