5G and IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society (ITSS)

The IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society (ITSS) advances the theoretical, experimental and operational aspects of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies as applied to Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). ICT-based ITS have been developed and deployed for more than three decades for improving safety, traffic efficiency, energy efficiency and comfort. The core technologies in the ITS domain are sensor technology, telecommunication, information processing and control technology. Different options can be combined in different ways to create stand-alone in-vehicle systems and cooperative systems (v2x).

5G will play an important role in v2x and automated transport. ITSS has added-value for the development of 5G technologies and industrial standards based on the requirements of the automotive industry, systems providers and infrastructure service providers, as well as for exploitation of the 5G research and innovation results.
