IEEE VTS New Fellow MembersóClass of 2016

The IEEE Fellow grade is used to recognize unusual distinction in the profession. Each year, a new class of IEEE Fellow awardees is conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors. The number of new IEEE Fellows each year is limited to 1/10 of 1% of the IEEE voting membership. 

The IEEE Vehicular Technology Society Fellow Evaluation Committee evaluates nominations for IEEE Fellow. The Vehicular Technology Society receives such nominations in portable and mobile communications, automotive electronics, and land transportation.  Accordingly, the VTS Fellow Evaluation Committee may change each year depending on the mixture of nominations received in each of the three technical areas.
