2017 ieee technical field awards

IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award

IEEE Transportation Technologies Award

Sponsored by Dr. Kiyo Tomiyasu, the IEEE Geoscience and Remote
Sensing Society, and the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society

Sponsored by the IEEE Industry Applications, Industrial Electronics, Intelligent
Transportation Systems, Microwave Theory and Techniques, Power Electronics,
Power & Energy, and Vehicular Technology Societies

J. Nicholas Laneman

C.C. Chan

For contributions to wireless network
communication theory, algorithms, and
architectures

For contributions to the advancement of
electric vehicle technologies

At the forefront of modern communications research, J. Nicholas
Laneman's contributions are driving the development of nextgeneration wireless networks that are reliable, spectrally efficient,
and secure. An early proponent of cooperative communications
and relaying techniques, Laneman's highly cited work has served
as the foundation for one of the most active research areas in
wireless communications. The concept involves mobile users in a
wireless network cooperating with one another to convey their
information to a common destination, relaying each other's information to provide more robust paths from sender to receiver.
His research has been integral to both achieving higher date rates
and extracting higher diversity from communications channels
for more efficient and reliable communication.
An IEEE Fellow, Laneman is a professor of electrical engineering and founding director of the Wireless Institute in the College
of Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame,
IN, USA.

One of the earliest international authorities on electric vehicles, C.C.
Chan has been at the forefront of developing technologies enabling
clean and efficient transportation methods benefiting the environment. Chan has made extraordinary contributions to the theoretical
analysis and optimization of electric machines, power electronic devices, converters, special mechanical structures, and cooling systems
that meet the special needs of electric vehicles including adaptive decoupling control, electromagnetic and thermal field analysis, hybrid
architectures, and energy management. Considered the first comprehensive book on the topic, Chan's Modern Electric Vehicle Technology
provided the fundamentals for modern electric vehicle technology,
addressed key issues, and assessed their environmental impact. His
recent research in smart charging and vehicle-to-grid systems has
gained attention from not only automakers but also power utilities.
An IEEE Fellow, Chan is a professor with the University of
Hong Kong's Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Hong Kong.
IEEE Undergraduate Teaching Award
Sponsored by the IEEE Education Society

Susan M. Lord
For contributions to the development of
more inclusive and innovative undergraduate teaching in electrical and
computer engineering

Considered by students and colleagues as an extraordinary educator and role model, Susan M. Lord is making engineering education more accessible and appealing to diverse students.At the University of San Diego (USD), Lord has coordinated redevelopment
of the first-year engineering course multiple times to enhance
student learning and improve retention. She also implemented
laboratory programs for engineering design to foster continuous
improvement. In her drive to make engineering education more
welcoming to students of diverse backgrounds, she has conducted
research to help faculty better understand who their students are,
their pathways into engineering fields, and their classroom experiences. Lord was the first USD engineering faculty member to
incorporate service learning where the students present hands-on
science to middle- and high-school classes.
An IEEE Fellow, Lord is a professor and chair of engineering at
the University of San Diego, San Diego, CA, USA.
