IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine publishes peer-reviewed articles covering advances in areas of interest to the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society: the theoretical, experimental, application and operational aspects of electrical and electronic engineering relevant to motor vehicles and associated land transportation infrastructure. (a) Mobile radio shall include technologies appropriate to terrestrial mobile vehicular services. (b) Motor vehicles shall include the components, systems and auxiliary functions. (c) Land transportation shall include the components and systems used in both automated and non-automated facets of ground transport technology, especially as they relate to vehicular systems.

The magazine focuses on intra-vehicular components, systems and applications. It includes tutorials, surveys, coverage of emerging technology in the aforementioned fields, and serves as a means for the IEEE VTS governing body to communicate with its membership.


The IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine is a premier quarterly magazine established as an international technical reference in its main areas of interest: mobile radio, connected and automated vehicles, automotive electronics, and transportation systems. 

Along with original technical papers, the magazine features editorial columns describing the latest news and developments in mobile radio, connected and automated vehicles, automotive electronics, transportation systems, standards, educational activities and Society news.

The magazine seeks original application, tutorial or survey-style papers describing new breakthrough ideas and technologies in mobile radio, connected and automated vehicles, automotive electronics and transportation systems.

Prospective authors are invited to submit to the main calls for papers and open special issue calls for papers as listed in the sidebar, following the submission instructions.
