IEEE Austrian Chapter on Intelligent Transportation Systems
The field of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) aims at the improvement of transport systems by reducing not only traffic congestion and carbon emissions but also enhancing road safety-related issues. ITS cuts across several disciplines and includes systems which rely upon sensor data collection for driving patterns analysis as well as cooperative, connected and automated systems. The IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society (ITSS) Austrian Chapter aims at advancing the theoretical, experimental, and operational aspects of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies as applied to ITS. It fosters programs for the growth of ITSS-related activities, such as access to technical innovation, cutting-edge information and networking opportunities. Several activities include for example the organization of Distinguished Lecturer Series, Workshops and Conferences and the recognition of significant contributions in the field of ITS by the Chapter members.
