Message from the Chair - March 2020

Welcome to the IEEE Transportation Electrification Community! 

Our mission is to coordinate all things transportation 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 year ago, from autonomous cars to fully electric airplanes.

Electric Vehicle Manufacturers Need Engineers with AI and Robotics Skills

by Kathy Pretz

Just about every car manufacturer—including BMWFordGeneral MotorsJaguar, and Toyota—has announced plans to build more electric vehicles and phase out cars with internal combustion engines. As of early 2018, automakers in Germany had invested US $52 billion in EVs, Chinese car companies $21 billion, and those in the United States at least $19 billion, according to Reuters. BloombergNEF’s 2019 Electric Vehicle Outlook predicts that EVs will make up 57 percent of passenger car sales globally by 2040.

GE Aviation Electrifies Airplane Engines to Meet Carbon Emission Goals

by Kathy Pretz

The aerospace industry is under intense pressure to reduce its impact on the environment. Between 2021 and 2035, the industry will have to offset a total of 2.6 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide under the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation, an emissions mitigation approach for the industry.

Internet of Things Technology Will Connect Highways, Street Lights, and Vehicles

by Kathy Pretz

As more and more intelligent cars and autonomous vehicles hit the road, some engineers are thinking about what can be done to smarten up the streets on which they travel.

Doing so could allow smart cars and trucks to exchange information with other vehicles, traffic management centers, and private companies about traffic congestion, accidents, and weather conditions. The key to making it happen is an Internet of Things system that includes sensors embedded in the roadway and on traffic lights.
