ITS Podcast Episode 35: IEEE IV 2016 Special Issue with Coelingh from Volvo cars and Anna Nilsson-Ehle from SAFER

This is episode 35 for July 2016, a special issue about the still warm Intelligent Vehicles Symposium 2016 that has just happened in Sweden a few days ago. We have been there and we have prepared such a good selection of contents around it. We have one of its keynotes to speak about Volvo’s vision on automated driving. He is Erik Coelingh, Senior Technical Leader for Safety and Driver Support Technologies at Volvo Cars. He talked about Volvo’s exciting project Autopilot that will be starting as soon as next year in Gothenburg, the city where IV2016 was held.

We also talked a little bit with Anna Nilsson-Ehle, Director of SAFER, host organization for IV2016, together with Chalmers university. It is a very interesting hub organization connecting together a big number of stakeholders on mobility safety. Very interesting stuff.

We also have comments from the Prof. Jonas Sjöberg IV2016 General Chair, Prof. Brendan Morris, IV2016 Program Chair and also Prof. Daniel Zeng, IEEE ITS Society President.

We have also included our regular mini sections, Transportation in History and Book Review, done by our volunteers Mehran Shirazi and Prof. Haluk Eren.

The Japanese SCMaglev's EDS suspension is powered by the magnetic fields induced either side of the vehicle by the passage of the vehicle's superconducting magnets.
