About IEEE SCC42 (IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee on Transportation)

Established by the IEEE-SA Standards Board and being supported by over 30 IEEE Societies and Councils, IEEE SCC42 Transportation (IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee on Transportation) leads the coordination of IEEE standardization activities for technologies related to transportation, especially in the areas of connected vehicles, autonomous/automated vehicles, inter- and intra-vehicle communications, and other types of transportation electrification. These technologies include but are not limited to Mobile Apps, Sensor Networks, and Communications that allow human to vehicle, vehicle to vehicle, vehicle to infrastructure, vehicle to platform, and vehicle to everything exchange of information and data. Where standardization needs exist, the SCC will develop guides, recommended practices, standards, and common definitions of terms. Click here for more background information:

The following IEEE SCC42 groups are recruiting new members. Each group will have monthly or bimonthly WebEx meetings, plus one or two face-to-face meetings every year. IEEE SCC42 does NOT provide any financial support for the members to attend these meetings, remotely or in person. The next IEEE SCC42 face-to-face meeting series will be held in conjunction with the upcoming ICCVE 2015, which is the most-searched connected vehicles conference in the world. If you want to join our efforts, please simply reply this email and indicate which group(s) you are interested in becoming a member of. Thanks for your consideration.
