About IEEE SCC42 (IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee on 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. For more background information, please visit:

The following IEEE SCC42 groups are recruiting new members. Each group will have monthly or bimonthly WebEx meetings, plus one or two face-to-face meetings every year. IEEE SCC42 does NOT provide any financial support for the members to attend these meetings, remotely or in person. The next IEEE SCC42 face-to-face meeting series will be held in conjunction with the upcoming ICCVE 2015, which is the most-searched connected vehicles conference in the world. If you want to join our efforts, please simply reply this email and indicate which group(s) you are interested in becoming a member of. Thanks for your consideration.

IEEE SCC42 WG2040 (Standard for Connected, Automated and Intelligent Vehicles: Overview and Architecture Working Group)

This standard defines an architectural framework for connected, automated and intelligent vehicles. This standard leverages existing applicable standards.

With major advances in information, communications, electric and electronic technologies, vehicles are becoming more connected, automated and intelligent. This trend is predicted to be one of the most significant drivers of transformation and growth in transportation and automotive markets. This standard will promote cross-domain interaction, aid system interoperability and functional compatibility, and further benefit humanity by helping develop an active, open and cooperative ecosystem for the future of transportation.

IEEE SCC42 WG2040.1 (Standard for Connected, Automated and Intelligent Vehicles: Taxonomy and Definitions Working Group)

This standard specifies the taxonomy and definitions for connected, automated and intelligent vehicles.

With major advances in information, communications, electric and electronic technologies, vehicles are becoming more connected, automated and intelligent. This trend is predicted to be one of the most significant drivers of transformation and growth in transportation and automotive markets. This standard specifies the taxonomy and definitions of terms used in the 2040 family of connected, automated and intelligent vehicles standards. This standard will facilitate cross-domain discussions and collaborations by defining different types/levels of connectivity, automation and intelligence as well as their various combinations applied to vehicles.

IEEE SCC42 WG2040.2 (Standard for Connected, Automated and Intelligent Vehicles: Testing and Verification Working Group)

This standard defines an overarching framework of testing and verification of the connectivity, automation and intelligence aspects and their combination for connected, automated and intelligent vehicles. This standard identifies existing applicable standards for testing and verification, and defines the integration of these standards into a consistent testing environment.

With major advances in information, communications, electric and electronic technologies, vehicles are becoming more connected, automated and intelligent. This trend is predicted to be one of the most significant drivers of transformation and growth in transportation and automotive markets. This is an evolving industry and there are currently no agreed upon requirements or standards for the testing and verification of connected, automated and intelligent vehicles. The outcome of this project will be to develop requirements for the testing and verification of connected, automated and intelligent vehicles. This will include the technical requirements for testing, the processes required and identify gaps in the existing standards that will need to be addressed for testing purposes.

IEEE SCC42 TF1 (Cybersecurity in Transportation Task Force)

This task force is responsible for assisting IEEE SCC42 in analyzing cybersecurity risks in transportation with respect to mobile device/wearable to vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication as well as communication between control systems inside of the vehicle. Furthermore ongoing or planned standardization activities in the cybersecurity domain will be assessed for relevance for transportation applications.

IEEE SCC42 TF2 (Road Electrification Task Force)

This task force is responsible for assisting IEEE SCC42 in understanding the potential of existing or emerging technologies relevant for road electrification in particular in combination with connected vehicle and automated driving technologies. Based on the technology assessment in selected IEEE research publications as well as other scientific sources standardization aspects are identified that could be led by IEEE.

IEEE SCC42 AG1 (Global Policy Advisory Group)

This advisory group is responsible for assisting IEEE SCC42 in observing and studying transportation policy of various countries, regions and organizations, and drafting responses, recommendations or statements on transportation policy.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. Yu Yuan
Chair, IEEE SCC42 (IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee on Transportation)

About ICCVE

You are cordially invited to attend the upcoming 4th IEEE/TRB International Conference on Connected Vehicles and Expo (ICCVE 2015) in Shenzhen, China (www.iccve.org). As one of the four “tier-1” cities of China, Shenzhen is the largest electronics industry base in China and probably also in the world, and is adjacent to Hong Kong and Macau. Previous ICCVE conferences were held in Beijing (December 2012), Las Vegas (December 2013) and Vienna (November 2014).

ICCVE is a unique conference in the field of connected and automated vehicles, as it gathers all the relevant communities together to enable the direct interlock between the domain experts in transportation/automotive industry and the enabling technology developers in ICT industry, and it also provides a perfect mixture of the industry insights disclosed in speeches/panels and the latest technology advances presented in technical papers. Moreover, holding ICCVE 2015 in Shenzhen China will provide a rare and invaluable opportunity for the worldwide technology leaders to improve the Chinese industry’s awareness of the trend and urgency of investing in connected and automated vehicles, and to tap into or expand in the China market. On the other hand, ICCVE 2015 will also be a one-stop venue to learn all the original innovations, unique business models, and other natures and dynamics in the Chinese transportation/automotive industry.
