  • Message from the Editor-in-Chief

    Dear Members of the IEEE Transportation Electrification Community, It is my pleasure to join the Community’s eNewsletter team as the new Editor-in-Chief and to join efforts with several Associate Editors and Authors to bring you selected articles and announcements on transportation electrification. This is a time when transportation electrification is of global interest due to increasing climate change concerns which transportation electrification will help reduce. Along with exciting achievements and innovations in energy conversion, energy efficiency, ...

  • Autonomy, Safety, Electric Transportation – Related? Complementary? Conflicting?

    By Philip Krein, Chair, IEEE Transportation Electrification Community Sometimes it seems as though the problems associated with autonomous vehicles are not effectively posed.  Much of the literature seems to emphasize questions along the lines of “How can an autonomous vehicle successfully negotiate traffic and obstacles to move from point A to point B?” This, in essence, is a robotics challenge, and reflects impressive advances in robotics over the last few years.  It sounds good, but consider a different ...

  • Join us at 2016 IEEE Transportation Electrification Conference and Expo

    By:  Berker Bilgin, 2016 General Chair Every year in June, ITEC brings academia, industry, government agencies, and the general public together to discuss the advancements, opportunities, and challenges in transportation electrification – one of the most important technological, social, and economical transformative shifts of the next century. ITEC aims at helping the industry transition from conventional vehicles to advanced electrified vehicles including heavy-duty and off-road vehicles, airplanes and ships. The 2016 IEEE Transportation Electrification Conference and Expo ...

  • Dynamic Wireless Charging of Electric Vehicles En Route

    By: Leandros A. Maglaras, et all Electric Vehicles [EVs] have the potential to reduce carbon emissions, local air pollution and the reliance on imported oil [1]. The European commission aims to reduce road transport emissions by 70% by 2050 [2]. Dynamic wireless charging of electric vehicles [3] could become a preferred method since it would enable power exchange between the vehicle and the grid while the vehicle is moving ubiquitously. Mobile energy disseminators (MED) are a ...

  • Electrically Assisted Torque Sensor Based Wheelchair with Dedicated Solar Charger Kit

    By: Dr. A.K.M Abdul Malek Azad Millions of physically impaired people completely rely on wheelchairs for their indoor and outdoor mobility. For some developing countries, such as Bangladesh, the most available wheelchairs are driven manually by physically disabled people. Even though these three or four wheeled manual wheelchairs have emerged as blessing for them but there is no overlooking of the substantial amount of physical force that needs to be exerted by the physically handicapped people ...
