IEEE Unveils Transportation Electrification Web Portal to Promote the Development and Use of a Wide Range of Electric Vehicles

IEEE, the world's largest professional association advancing technology for humanity, today launched the IEEE Transportation Electrification Web Portal as part of its newly formed IEEE Transportation Electrification (TE) Initiative, created by IEEE Future Directions to help accelerate the development and implementation of new technologies and innovations in the rapidly evolving electrified transportation industry.

An integrated gateway to intelligence, education, and timely news from IEEE and other expert sources, the IEEE TE Web Portal provides information on a cross-section of topics, including the latest technological advancements related to clean, efficient power conversion for all types of electrified transportation for air, land and water. Among the transportation technologies covered are electric vehicles (EVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), as well as heavy-duty vehicles, utility vehicles, rail, off-road vehicles, airplanes, underwater vehicles, and ships.

Launching on the heels of the highly successful IEEE Electric Vehicles (EV) Conference held in March 2012, the IEEE TE Web Portal is intended as a resource for manufacturers, engineers, computer scientists, researchers, policymakers, educators, academics, and governments, as well as consumers and other stakeholders interested in learning about various aspects of transportation electrification.

“The shift towards modernized transportation and the adoption of advanced electric vehicle technologies is inevitable, and there is a rapidly growing industry and ecosystem emerging in support of this lucrative global market opportunity,” said Russ Lefevre, co-chair, IEEE Transportation Electrification Initiative. “The IEEE TE Initiative and Web Portal have been established to serve the needs of all key stakeholders seeking insightful information and meaningful ways to engage in making electrified transportation a reality.”

The IEEE TE Web Portal is the go-to source for articles and technical publications related to transportation electrification. It is also a dedicated resource for news items on the latest TE developments happening around the world; updates on standards and standards projects; and educational conferences and events. Additionally, it offers a roster of companies, universities, government institutions, IEEE Societies, and industry associations essential to the development and deployment of electric vehicles and electrified transportation.

“When you look inside electric drive vehicles you see the entire IEEE organization at work. As with many other electronic technologies, like computers, networks, and components, IEEE has the intellectual property, innovators and entrepreneurs by which all the components of an electric vehicle can be developed and connected together to build a next generation transportation solution,” said Lee Stogner, co-chair, IEEE TE Initiative.

“It's not just the battery or motor that IEEE has helped to make happen – every vehicle in the transportation electrification suite contains thousands of elements that depend on IEEE fields of expertise. For example, the Chevrolet Volt alone has more than 10 million lines of code that were developed using processes, standards and technologies promulgated by the IEEE,” continued Stogner.

The IEEE TE Initiative was established by IEEE Future Directions, which serves as a catalyst for supporting new technologies, incubating emerging technologies, and introducing innovative applications of current technologies. Another upcoming IEEE Future Directions activity is the second annual IEEE Technology Time Machine (TTM) Symposium on Technology Beyond 2020. Being held in Dresden, Germany May 23-25, the IEEE TTM Symposium brings together world-renowned experts to discuss in a tutorial way the evolutionary and revolutionary advances in technology landscapes in the next decade.

Sessions at the 2012 IEEE TTM Symposium include: Advanced Medical Technologies; Cloud Computing; Collective Intelligence; Cyber Physical Systems; Electronics Beyond CMOS; Future of Media; Networks Supporting Future Applications; and Smart Transportation by executives from companies and organizations such as Aalborg University, Alcatel-Lucent, Associated Press, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Google, IBM Microelectronics, Intel-GE Care Innovations, LG Display, Microsoft Research, NASA, Nokia Siemens Networks, Oracle Labs, Philips Research Europe, Politecnico di Milano, SAP, Siemens, TU Chemnitz, TU Dresden, University of California at Berkeley, Vodafone R&D, and Volkswagen Group, among others.
