David John Law

William C. Lindsey

For leadership of and contributions to
the development of IEEE Standards with
global impact, particularly 802.3 Ethernet Standards

For contributions to synchronization and
digital communication technologies

David John Law has inspired a rich culture of professionalism,
transparency, and a drive to "go the extra mile" to ensure the quality
of IEEE 802.3 Ethernet and other IEEE standards. His contributions share a central theme of demystifying standards and demonstrating the value of a rigorous standards development process.
As chair of the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working group, under Law's
leadership the breadth of the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Standard has
grown beyond enterprise and campus networks as he has worked
to see important expansion of capabilities into new, diverse applications. Law has provided expert guidance to other standards
efforts through his work with the IEEE-SA Standards Board, the
IEEE Standards Education Committee, and the IEEE 802 LAN/
MAN Standards Committee's University Outreach Program.
An IEEE Senior Member, Law is a distinguished technologist
with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Oban, Argyll, Scotland.

William C. Lindsey's synchronization and communications research has spearheaded the digital communications revolution
and created novel technologies for space and mobile wireless
communications. Lindsey's work on carrier and clock synchronization methodologies for demodulation and decoder timing
significantly improved the performance and efficiency for both
data communication and spacecraft tracking and reduced the size,
weight, power, and complexity of these devices. Lindsey's digitaldata transaction-tracking loop (DTTL) enabled the decoding of
the first photos of Mars from NASA's Mariner spacecraft as well
as images from the Voyager missions, and it was critical to Space
Shuttle and space station communications efforts. It also led to
the concept of "digital phase-locked systems on a chip" used in
modern mobile radios and localization systems.
An IEEE Life Fellow and member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, Lindsey is a professor of electrical engineering
at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

IEEE Nikola Tesla Award

IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award

Sponsored by the Wolong Electric Group Co., Ltd., the IEEE Industry
Applications Society, and the IEEE Power & Energy Society

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

Adel Razek

Emilio Frazzoli

For contributions to coupled multiphysics
modeling and design of electromagnetic
systems

For contributions to planning, control, and
fleet operation algorithms for autonomous
vehicles

Considered one of the most successful multiphysics researchers,
Adel Razek's modeling and design tools are responsible for making commercial energy conversion devices more efficient and reliable. He was among the first to develop coupled electromagnetic
and circuit analysis and further developed the multiphysics field
by adding coupled thermal and mechanical analysis. His work has
led to the better understanding of electromagnetics in electrical
machinery and electromagnetic devices and has allowed engineers
and scientists to achieve higher accuracy in determining the different variables governing the operation of industrial systems and
to account for realistic system operation. Other areas impacted
by Razek's work include traction in electric vehicle drives, electromagnetic compatibility, nondestructive testing, smart material
actuation, robotics, and biomedicine.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Razek is senior research director (emeritus) and professor (honorary) with the National Center for Scientific Research and Centralesupelec, Gif Sur Yvette, France.

Emilio Frazzoli is a driving force in developing planning and control algorithms for the safe and reliable operation of autonomous
vehicles in real-world environments. Frazzoli has created control
software that allows autonomous cars to generate only trajectories
that satisfy all "hard rules" (such as "do not hit pedestrians") while
satisfying as many "soft rules" ("if possible, stay in left lane") as
possible. His Rapidly-exploring Random Trees (RRT) algorithm
is considered the state-of-the-art in motion planning. One of his
projects helped gain understanding of the impact of autonomous
cars on urban mobility. This project featured the first vehicle authorized to drive autonomously on public roads in Singapore using "rules of the road" planning and the first analysis of the social
and economic impact of autonomous cars on a city.
An IEEE Senior Member, Frazzoli is a professor with ETH
Zürich, Switzerland, and the chief scientist of nuTonomy, Inc.,
Cambridge, MA, USA.
