IEEE - Smart Travel

The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) is the world’s largest technical professional association.  One of many projects underway, is the IEEE’s development of advanced technology to be used in mass transit and road traffic computing and communications systems.  The goal is to incorporate new security, wireless, sensor, robotics and other technologies into intelligent transport systems, to make consumer travel safer. These advancements promise to provide some pretty amazing benefits, including:  electric highways with charging stations for electric cars on long drives traffic-adaptive cruise control wireless sensor-based early warning systems to prevent collisions magnetic transport systems for more sustainable mass transportation  “We continue to leverage global techniques in engineering, computing and technology to advance integrated communications systems for automotive, railway and aircraft guidance," said Professor Azim Eskandarian, an IEEE member who is on the Board of Governors of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society. “From developing artificial neural networks for network modeling, driver behavior modeling and automotive safety, to improving vehicular situational awareness, engineers are working to progress vehicle collision avoidance methods, advance traffic warning systems and improve driver assistance.”
