About the IEEE SCC42 Transportation

Established by the IEEE-SA Standards Board and being supported by over 30 IEEE Societies and Councils, IEEE SCC42 Transportation (IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee on Transportation) leads the coordination of IEEE standardization activities for technologies related to transportation, especially in the areas of connected vehicles, autonomous/automated vehicles, inter- and intra-vehicle communications, and other types of transportation electrification. These technologies include but are not limited to Mobile Apps, Sensor Networks, and Communications that allow human to vehicle, vehicle to vehicle, vehicle to infrastructure, vehicle to platform, and vehicle to everything exchange of information and data. Where standardization needs exist, the SCC will develop guides, recommended practices, standards, and common definitions of terms.
