Message from the EiC

Welcome to the May 2020 issue of VTS Mobile World – your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter. I hope you are doing well and keeping safe.

In this issue, we feature a new video—Advanced Data Analysis for Train Resource Planning with Python—available at the VTS Resource Center. Also included are recently published papers from the IEEE Open Journal of Vehicular Technology.

In addition, there is a message from the Chair of the VTS Ad Hoc Committee on Autonomous Vehicles. You will also find an update about the VTS Distinguished Lecturers and Distinguished Speakers Program in response to COVID-19.

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

Volunteers Wanted for Autonomous Vehicles Committee

Capacity Planning of PEV Charging Infrastructure
A. Abdalrahman and W. Zhuang

Editor-in-Chief Sumei Sun invites all to peruse the following two IEEE OJVT articles.

The firstóPlug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging infrastructure is necessary to accommodate the rapid increase in PEV penetration rate. Capacity planning of PEV charging infrastructure (EVCI) must ensure not only a satisfactory charging service for PEV users but also a reliable operation of the power grid. In this paper, we propose a quality-of-service (QoS) aware capacity planning of EVCI. Read more...

Fair Coverage by Energy-Constrained UAVs
H. V. Abeywickrama, Y. He, E. Dutkiewicz, B. A. Jayawickrama and M. Mueck

The second—Unmanned Aerial Vehicle mounted mobile base stations (UAV-BSs) have limitations compared to fixed infrastructure. This paper proposes methods based on Reinforcement Learning and Deep Reinforcement Learning to provide efficient and fair coverage to the ground users. Read more...
