Society Spotlight
Leading the Transportation
Electrification Revolution
By Bruno Lequesne, Chair, IEEE Transportation Electrification Community
It is not a hyperbole to say that the world is
undergoing another technical revolution, with
electricity (again) at its center. A key pillar of this
transformation is the move to electrify transportation,
and IEEE members are leading this effort. The IEEE
Transportation Electrification Community (TEC) was
formed in 2015 to coordinate the numerous activities
within IEEE on propulsion, communication, and
autonomous driving that form the main thrusts of this
sea change. Within TEC, we discuss the technologies,
standards, and projects that will enable the clean,
connected, and efficient transportation and vehicular
systems of the future.
We are working on cars, of course, but innovative
technologies are being developed to electrify ferries,
off-road vehicles, farming and mining equipment,
drones, and even airplanes! TEC has members in
all of these industries. We have a presence in Asia,
Europe, North and South America, and in developing
nations, because this transformation is not happening
in a few industrialized nations, but worldwide.
Each region is doing it in its own way and with its
own priorities.
As an IEEE group, TEC is fairly new, but we are
capitalizing on past and on-going efforts within the
many IEEE societies. We have a quarterly newsletter,
with the next issue open to all topics related to TEC,
while future ones will each have a special focus.
Previous issues are available on the TEC website, and
past articles have been indexed on Google Scholar.
We participate in a number of conferences covering
the various aspects of transportation. For example,
the ITEC series, with events in North America,
Europe, Asia-Pacific, and India, focuses on propulsion,
charging, and infrastructure. In June, ITEC+EATS will
be held in California, ITEC Asia-Pacific is expected
to be held in October in China, and a similar event,
ESARS-ITEC, is planned for later in Europe. ITEC+EATS
is a combined conference with the TEC-AIAA Electric
Aircraft Technologies Symposium, a growing yearly
THE BRIDGE
event addressing the new and exciting developments
in electric aircraft propulsion. Check out events in
intelligent transportation systems as well.
This field is expanding rapidly, and continuing
education is critical for engineers working in this
industry. TEC provides webinars, tutorials, podcasts
and workshops for seasoned engineers, young
engineers honing their skills, and engineers
transitioning to electrical applications with a
non-EE background. A focused group of " Women
in Transportation " was started last year, and is
organizing online roundtables. For students, TEC
organizes or participates in a number of competitions,
as highlighted in the September 2021 Newsletter
and the IEEE TEC Prize Ph.D. Thesis Talk - 3 Min
Ph.D. Challenge, where emerging researchers are
challenged to summarize their cutting-edge work
within 3 minutes.
The year 2022 will see exciting changes for us. TEC
is hoping to move to a next phase and increase its
support base of IEEE societies, thereby providing
a single place within IEEE for professionals in the
transportation industry to learn, mingle with others,
present the results of their work, and meet young
individuals eager to join this technical revolution. We
expect to have local groups and chapters (we already
have one in Beijing and another being formed in
India), help develop new standards, and expand our
activities further in this cross-disciplinary area.
Consider becoming a member of TEC. Membership
is free if you are already a member of one of our
sponsors, which include the following IEEE Societies:
AESS, DEIS, IAS, IES, ITSS, PES, PELS, and RS.
For those that do not belong to one of our sponsors,
our participation fee is US $10 for individuals and
higher-grade members of IEEE or US $5 for students
(IEEE membership is not required for membership).
Don't just join, volunteer!
