The IEEE Vehicular Technology Society Fellow Evaluation Committee evaluates nominations for IEEE Fellow. The Vehicular Technology Society receives such nominations in portable and mobile communications, automotive electronics, and land transportation. Accordingly, the VTS Fellow Evaluation Committee may change each year depending on the mixture of nominations received in each of the three technical areas.
