VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday starting November 24 through November 28, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience.
 

IIHCC focuses its attention on the ways that people interact with one another and with their environment. Interest areas in this DA include smart, healthy, and sustainable cities and communities; transportation systems; human safety, health, and wellness; integrated energy systems; network science and engineering; public policy; and cyber-physical systems. The initial focus for IIHCC will be on four themes: Ubiquitous Mobility: The location-agnostic promise of new communication and information technologies Automated Vehicle Systems: vehicles that can transit safely and efficiently through our communities independent of a human operator Smart Design and Construction: an intelligent, integrated, adaptable, responsive, and sustainable human-centric built environment Energy: the underlying innovations that will be required in the production, distribution, and consumption of energy to realize such a system
