Leading with Enthusiasm

It’s January 2017 and it’s already been a busy year advancing technology for humanity in IEEE Region 6, staring in Las Vegas where the stars aligned January 2-4 to bring in students and young professionals, to meet and learn from some of our amazing professional and technical stars at our IEEE Rising Stars Conference. 2017 looks to be IEEE’s year of the young professional and our dual technical and professional tracks aimed to both empower and engage them.  We led with so much enthusiasm, that our region’s young professional event is now heading over to IEEE Region 10 (Asia and Oceania) where 2017 means an IEEE Rising Stars Conference for them too. 

The Consumer Electronics Show comes in not-so-coincidentally along with Rising Stars.  It may not be an IEEE event, but its 177,000 tech attendees make it a beacon of advancing technology for both our public visibility and our technical activities.  Our 2015-16 Director, Thomas Coughlin, reported on consumer electronics trends in IEEE Spectrum’s Tech Talk with his blog on “CES 2017: AR, VR and IoT Will Be Hot, 3D Printing Not” blog on the newest technology trends.   One of the major trends are innovations in intelligent security in a world with more autonomous devices and automated responses. Much focus is on the consumer electronics side of the security problem, also I am putting together a 2017 special issue of the IEEE Aerospace & Electronics Magazine on cyber security in aerospace and welcome article submissions that tackle security for aviation and space, including UAS.

It’s a new year for leadership in our region and I am grateful to our volunteer leaders who have stepped forward to bring us forward, and, of course, we want to acknowledge the contributions and accomplishments of all those who have led us to our role of embracing and making the future IEEE.  Our first gathering as a region is kicks off with a meeting in Los Angeles February 3-5 and it brings together leaders from our sections across the west, our region, and our IEEE.  I love to learn and we have a program designed to offer us an opportunity to do just that, while also to collaborate, plan, inspire and become inspired to advance technical and professional activities, mentor and lead, and work towards a membership that grows and meaningfully includes and enthuses across our IEEE.

-Kathleen A. Kramer

Director, IEEE Region 6

Registration site is:

http://clastech2015.eventbrite.com

What are some of the technical topics that will be presented at this meeting, all by well qualified
experts in their field? See below the short list of the announced topics, in which some “guesses”
on the anticipated detailed subjects to be covered are added in parenthesis.

  • Satellite communication with In-Flight connectivity (Can we “talk” to our satellite? Can we
    track our satellite? Can we avoid near–encounters with other satellites in near-by orbits?)
  • End-to-end antenna and associated feed network design (a tool for antenna system engineers?)
  • Inflatable and transportable antennas (will they be wearable too?)
  • 5G / test and measurement viewpoints (How much more data connectivity and transfer can we pack
    into the next generation of smartphones? How will we verify this data connectivity?)
  • Terahertz radar for distant TBD through-clothes imaging (Are these better that Homeland
    Security airport scanners? How much?)
  • Monolithic phased array: RF out to optical frequencies (Laser frequencies, anyone?)
  • GaN power amplifiers for higher and higher frequencies (70 GHz and beyond, with wider
    bandwidths for signal transmission and modulation to boot)
  • In-Situ antenna measurements using National Instrument / AWR design tool suite (How effective
    are your lab measurements?)
  • Demonstration of electromagnetic analysis using ANSYS HFSS commercial programs
  • Electronic packaging (or, can we make a device that works within a form-factored package?)

Yes, you as an attendee will have to pick and choose what sessions to attend; there are three
simultaneous tracks. Plan for an interesting and intense day of technology updates.

And of course you yourself are also more than welcome to join us if you are interested. Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message.

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:
http://standards.ieee.org/news/2014/ieee_scc42_transportation.html
http://www.iccve.org/2015/download/IEEE SCC42 overview.pdf

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.

Co-sponsored by Orange County and Los Angeles County Consultants Networks

Dr. Goodman will explain how humans are unique animals in their use of energy. How we really need to use a lot of energy to thrive, and yet–getting most of that energy as we now do by burning something–we are rapidly making the Earth uninhabitable for humans.

This is our dilemma: How to get all the energy we need without killing ourselves in the process. Dr. Goodman will then describe briefly a very audacious solution that not only gives us all the energy we could possibly use and at a cost far smaller than what we now are paying, it will also let us cure our global climate problem, and much more. If we choose this path we’ll face a wondrous array of engineering challenges along the way, and reap enormous benefits at the end. Do any of you wish for space travel for everyone? That’s included as well.

UCLA Extension is offering Winter 2014 Short Courses.

December 10, 2013 in Buenaventura Section, Central Coast Section, China Lake/Bakersfield Section, Coastal Los Angeles Section, Education, Foothill Section, LACCN, Metro Los Angeles, OCCN, Orange County Section, San Diego Section, San Fernando Valley Section by tsnyderpe

UCLA Extension is offering Winter 2014 Short Courses.  UCLA Extension is one of the largest providers of continuing education in the United States, and continues a 50+ year tradition of presenting quality technical and management short courses for engineers, information technology professionals, and technical managers seeking to keep abreast of new and rapidly changing technologies. Take a 2-5 day short course emphasizing on highly specialized content.

 

We will be offering a short course on Multitarget/Multisensor Data Fusion Techniques on Jan 22-24.  This course describes sensor and data fusion methods that improve the probability of correct target detection, classification, identification, and state estimation. These techniques combine information from collocated or dispersed sensors that utilize either similar or different technologies to generate target signatures or imagery. Topics include the effects of the atmosphere and countermeasures on millimeter-wave and infrared sensors to illustrate how the use of different phenomenology-based sensors enhances a data fusion system.
