The mission of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society (ITSS) is to advance the theoretical, experimental, and operational aspects of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies as applied to intelligent transportation systems (ITS), defined as those systems utilizing synergistic technologies and systems engineering concepts to develop and improve transportation systems of all kinds.

History of the Intelligent Transportation Systems Society

The following archives document the history of the Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, which was officially founded as the Intelligent Transportation Systems Council on January 1, 1999, following a vote by the IEEE Technical Activities Board (TAB) to transform the TAB Ad Hoc Committee on ITS into a permanent entity. The ITS Council became a Society in 2005 and published its first newsletter as a Society in March of that year (Volume 7, Issue 1, of the Newsletter).
