Message from the EiC

Welcome to the March 2020 issue of VTS Mobile World – your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter. In this issue, we feature a new video on “Energy Sources and Energy Management for Electric & Hybrid Vehicles” available at the VTS Resource Center.

Also included are recently published papers in the IEEE Open Journal of Vehicular Technology, and regular technical columns on mobile radio, connected vehicles and transportation. In addition, there is a message from the EiC of the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology.
