Cyber Security in the World Around You

The need for cyber security is increasing as the number of devices interconnected by cloud technology grows. Because everyday life is growing more reliant on technology, the likelihood of any one cyber attack having significant and far-reaching consequences is also growing. In 2018, researchers from the University of Kent identified fifty-seven different ways in which […]

Free Webinar: IEEE Guide to Autonomous Vehicle Technology

You are invited to participate in a live complimentary IEEE course program webinar presented by Dr. Alexander M. Wyglinski, Dr. Nasser Lashgarian Azad, and Dr. Steve Vozar.

Automated vehicle (AV) technology offers many potential benefits to drivers. However, there is still some remaining uncertainty about efficacy and usability when users interact with these systems. This webinar will address this uncertainty as well as cover foundational and practical applications of autonomous, connected, and intelligent vehicle technologies.

Key Take-Aways:

  • How to properly identify typical sensors used in an AV
  • Learn to assess the benefits and drawbacks of different sensing modalities
  • How to model and evaluate the performance of intelligent vehicle control algorithms using state-of-the-art techniques and concepts
  • Live Q&A session

U.S. Postal Service Tests Autonomous Trucks in Two-Week Pilot Program

On 21 May 2019, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) launched a two-week pilot program that utilizes self-driving trucks to transport mail from Phoenix, Arizona to Dallas, Texas. This test is a major step toward commercializing autonomous vehicle (AV) technology for hauling freight. The self-driving trucks traveled on major interstates, covering more than 21,000 in 45 […]

Are We Ready for Pilotless Planes?

While the government’s vision is to have driverless cars on the road by 2021, new research shows that 57% of UK citizens wouldn’t feel safe in an autonomous vehicle (AV). However, nearly two-thirds of respondents said they feel safe when flying aboard an airplane. What many respondents may not realize is pilots train in a […]
