ITS Podcast Episode 37: Intelligent Vehicles in the Outer Rim with prof. Felipe Jimenez

Here we are again with the best periodical podcast on Intelligent Transportation Science and Engineering. We have a very interesting menu for today. We will talk about how the intelligent vehicle field is evolving in the periphery of Europe, far from Daimler, BMW, Volvo and other huge car-makers. We will talk with professor Felipe Jimenez from Madrid about it!

Prof. Felipe Jimenez, UPM.

Of course, we also have a News Mini-section, by Dr. Maryam Kaveshgar. She will tell us about a very interesting autonomous buses initiative up in cold and fascinating Finland! Don’t miss it!

Do you think you know all about automatic cruise control? Maybe you can learn a bit about the history of that convenient and fancy technology’s history in another brilliant History Minisection by professor Mehran Shirazi.

Additionally we will have another book review by prof. Haluk Eren about how transportation management can benefit from social media, a very hot and emerging topic in our field.

If you want to jump to Prof. Jimenez’ talk, it starts at 10’17”.
