IEEE New Zealand North Section


Vehicular Technology Society

The IEEE Vehicular Technology Society (VTS) is an IEEE society with technical activities concentrated around three pillars: Wireless Communications, Automotive Electronics and Motor Vehicles, and Land Transportation. VTS was first established in 1949 as the Professional Group on Vehicular Communications (PGVC) of the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE). When the IRE and AIEE merged in 1963 to become the IEEE,  the PGVC then became the Vehicular Technology Society (VTS).

The VTS Distinguished Lecturer (DL) program is one of the largest in IEEE, with approximately 50 world-class speakers available to provide lectures to VTS chapters around the world. The VTS DL program is available to VTS local chapters. VTS also regularly releases educational video modules for our members. Please refer to for more information on VTS.

The purpose of the IEEE VTS New Zealand North Chapter is to foster the fast growing interests in Autonomous Vehicles, UAVs, Vehicular Communications, Networks, Management, and Security in New Zealand North region.

The Chapter will organize technical activities, possibly in collaboration with other IEEE chapters and organizations, in the form of workshops, seminars, distinguished lecturer tours, and demonstrations. These interactive events will facilitate connection and collaboration among VTS members and beyond.
