Traversing the Earth through land, sea and air is one of the oldest motivations for the development of technology. From the ancient invention of the wheel to modern devices like trains, planes and automobiles, transportation remains a constant concern for society.

Considered the "Edison of Transit", Frank Sprague made huge advancements in regards to electrical engineering in transportation. The Richmond Union Passenger Railway line served as a prototype for the first commercial street car. Henry Ford would later mass produce automobiles, making them an affordable reality for most Americans. Jet engines were developed during World War II with the V1 and V2 Rockets, which would set the stage for the developments in both air and space travel over the next decades.

IEEE's interests in transportation are represented by the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society and the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, which both publish numerous magazines and journals like Systems Magazine and Intelligent Transportation Systems Magazine.
