Joint Transportation Chapter

IEEE Vancouver Joint Transportation Chapter


Welcome to the home page of the IEEE Vancouver Joint Transportation Systems Chapter!
Our next event is the ITS Technology Innovation Forum which is being held at the University of British Columbia on 28/29 March 2023. See more information here.
Our joint chapter represents two IEEE technical societies:
  • IEEE Vehicular Technology Society – VT06
  • IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society – ITS38

and is led by Prof. Dave Michelson, email dmichelson at

We serve the members of these IEEE technical societies, but also welcome interested IEEE members and others in the broader transportation engineering community in Vancouver.

The IEEE Vehicular Technology Society is concerned with with land, airborne and maritime mobile services; portable commercial and citizen’s communications services; vehicular electrotechnology, equipment and systems of the automotive industry; traction power, signals, communications and control systems for mass transit and railroads.
