Message from the EiC

Welcome to the February 2021 issue of VTS Mobile World – your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter.

In this issue, VTS Vice President—Mobile Radio Jae Hong Lee gives a message about mobile radio in IEEE VTS for 2021. In addition, VTS IEEE Press Liaison Peter Chong calls for qualified authors to expand the VTS technical book offering. And recently published papers from the IEEE Open Journal of Vehicular Technology are also included.

As always, I am always available to hear your feedback; just send me a note at Richard.Yu@ieee.org.  Read More...

Message from the Vice President—Mobile Radio
Technology for Our World Today
Jae Hong Lee

Wireless networks can facilitate monitoring and tracing of COVID-19 cases by collecting data through mobile phones and analyzing them to assess the possibility of exposure to the disease.

Recently, a variety of applications for wireless networks and mobile phones have been proposed for this purpose.  Read More...

Open Calls
Call for Authors: VTS IEEE Press
Peter Chong, VTS IEEE Press Liaison

IEEE Press supports a book series for IEEE VTS on vehicular technology, the IEEE Press Series on Vehicular Technology. IEEE VTS is seeking qualified authors to expand the VTS technical book offering.

A Routing Protocol for UAV-Assisted Vehicular Delay Tolerant Networks
Zhaoyang Du, Celimuge Wu, Tsutomu Yoshinaga, Xianfu Chen, Wang Xiaoyan, Kok-Lim Alvin Yau, and Yusheng Ji

Vehicular delay tolerant networks (VDTNs) enable information sharing among mobile nodes in scenarios where cellular base stations are unavailable and the connections between the mobile nodes are intermittent. While unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have shown to improve the performance of VDTNs, existing routing protocols, such as PRoPHET, consider the encounter probability between mobile nodes only, which does not fully address the characteristics of UAVs in route selection.  Read More...

Novel MIMO Technique for Wireless Terabits Systems in sub-THz Band
Majed Saad, Nour Al Akkad, Hussein Hijazi, Ali Chamas Al Ghouwayel, Faouzi Bader, and Jaques Palicot

This paper proposes a generalized MIMO Spatial Multiplexing (SMX) system with a new Index Modulation (IM) domain called filter IM domain. Results show that SMX-FSIM with a linear receiver has better performance, robustness to phase noise, lower transceiver cost, higher SE/energy efficiency gain, and lower power consumption.  Read More...
