Message from the Chair - May 2022

Welcome to the IEEE Transportation Electrification Community!  

Our mission is to coordinate all things transportation, electric and smart, within IEEE.  Honestly, our task gets bigger every day with applications that would have been thought of as “futuristic” if not downright crazy just a few years ago, from autonomous cars to fully electric airplanes and super high-speed trains.

 By Lawrence Ulrich

Most automakers are dying to sell you—and the world—an electric car. But they’re up against the challenge of our global-warming time: dauntingly tight supplies of both batteries and the ethically sourced raw materials required to make them.

Strategies for reducing the fossil-fuel impact of electric vehicles

Contributed by Philip T. Krein, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Zhejiang University, China

The impact of electric transportation on pollution and reduced carbon emissions and fossil-fuel consumption is complicated. On the one hand, well-designed electric vehicles (EVs) use much less energy per mile than conventionally-fueled vehicles. For passenger cars, good all-electric designs use roughly a quarter of the energy per mile of gasoline cars, tracing back to the source. On the other hand, the emissions impact tends to be much more local, and depends on how electricity is generated in a region.

The Future of Transportation for Reducing Emissions

by Kaushik Rajashekara, IEEE


The advancement of flying cars and eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) vehicles is reshaping the future of transportation. In addition to helping us reach our destinations more quickly and cut road traffic congestion, flying cars and eVTOL vehicles could help dramatically reduce the overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation globally.

Smart Electrification is Revolutionizing Farming Today

Our guest was none other than “e-farming” Guru, Dr. Brij Singh, Technical Fellow and Region 4 Manager of External Relationship, Deere and Company. In this podcast, Dr. Singh highlights several burning issues related to smart e-farming and explains how modern electrical machinery will make the lives of farmers easier. He also clarifies how e-farming will influence the farms of the future and change the way crops are produced. He particularly places importance on the role of power electronics and AI/IoT within the e-agricultural sector. He also talks about the role electrified drones will have moving forward. Finally, he talks about developing nations in continents such as Africa and Asia and how farmers there are adapting to agricultural tech advancements, especially from a social perspective. He also exclusively mentions how he and his family have been involved with agriculture and farming in India since the early 1400s. We were indeed honored to host Dr. Brij Singh as our guest for this timely episode on smart electrified farming.
