10 years of news and resources for members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

March 2017

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) is honored to announce the elevation of 73 of its members to the grade of IEEE Senior Member. These members have demonstrated outstanding professional performance, exhibited professional maturity through long-term experience, and established themselves as leaders in their respective IEEE-designated fields of interest. Senior Member is the only membership grade that is eligible to be nominated for IEEE Fellow. The new Senior Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society are:

Overview
The Board of Governors of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) has allocated $20,000 for Member-Driven Initiatives for the 2017 calendar year. The funding is open to all Signal Processing Society members, Chapters and Committees. However, all proposals must include the involvement of the local Chapter to encourage geographic development. Allocation of funds will be competitive.

Remotely controlled ships, piloted by people on shore, and autonomous ships, which can take actions for themselves, are the latest beneficiaries of increasing digital connectivity and intelligence. This IEEE Spectrum articles provides an insider's perspective on autonomous ships in high seas, covering sensing, communication, collision avoidence, compelx maneuvers and more.

For our March 2017 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with iris biometrics, including sensor development, prosthetic iris preparation, camera and illumination settings and signal processing algorithms.

The Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee (IVMSP TC) reports on the upcoming ICIP and ICASSP conferences, the recent IVMSP workshop and new TC members.

Udacity formed their core Self-Driving Car Team, together with Google Self-Driving Car founder and Udacity President Sebastian Thrun. Now, the online education company is building an open source self-driving car as part of its effort to offer its self-driving car nanodegree program.

The problem of making the car autonomous is broken down into several challenges. Currently, there are four challenges and the fifth is coming.
