THE IEEE is participating in a series of global events to promote transportation electrification.
IEEE is the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity.
Kicking off in Beijing on August 31 and continuing on to Vancouver, Portugal, Vienna, Dallas and ending in Florence on December 19, the IEEE Transportation Electrification Initiative will reach electric vehicle (EV) stakeholders at 12 different events around the globe.
According to IEEE, the goal of transportation electrification is to make it clean, efficient, connected and safe.
“Vehicle electrification is gaining critical momentum in all major markets. As the first generation of products have been introduced, manufacturers are learning more and more about the true customer demands and standardisation needs,” said Joachim Taiber, conferences committee chair for the IEEE Transportation Electrification Initiative.
With a growing market for EV and hybrid vehicles, the Transportation Electrification Initiative conference and event program is oriented towards identifying the next tranch of needs both for innovation and standardisation.
The events will include presentations on industry-leading topics, including battery technologies, advanced charging, powertrains and connected vehicles. It is anticipated that these developments will need to be integrated with the smart grid, the Internet of Things (IoT) and the intelligent highway as the industry moves to the next level of transportation.
