The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) on a yearly basis presents 32 Technical Field Awards (TFAs) for contributions to or leadership in a specific field of interest of the IEEE. For nearly a century, the IEEE Awards Program has paid tribute to technical professionals whose exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions have made a lasting impact on technology, society, and the engineering profession. Each year the IEEE Awards Board recommends a select group of recipients to receive IEEE's most prestigious honors.
The IEEE Transportation Technologies Award was established in 2011 and is presented to an individual, a team, or multiple recipients up to three in number, recognizing advances in technologies within the fields of interest to the IEEE as applied in transportation systems. The award consists of a bronze medal, certificate, and cash honorarium. The award is sponsored by the following IEEE Societies: IEEE Industry Applications Society, IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, IEEE Power Electronics Society, IEEE Power & Energy Society, and IEEE Vehicular Technology Society.
