IEEE Professional Activities

We will showcase the work of several of our professionals, including current and past commercial work in the area of Internet of Things, connected devices such as Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone boards, intelligent displays, robotics, and laser engraving systems. In the external common area of the grounds we plan to have the IEEE MOVE Truck. MOVE Community Outreach, an IEEE-USA Initiative is an emergency relief program committed to assisting victims of natural disasters with short-term communications, computer, and power solutions. These temporary emergency relief provisions help those affected stay connected and make sure they can access the help they need. Services include phone charging, internet & communications support, and lighting to disaster victims. See https://move.ieeeusa.org/ for more information on MOVE.

IEEE Orlando Section

IEEE Orlando Section

The IEEE Orlando Section was established in 1959. IEEE, pronounced “Eye-triple-E,” stands for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. IEEE, an association dedicated to advancing innovation and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity, is the world’s largest technical professional society. It is designed to serve professionals involved in all aspects of the electrical, electronic, and computing fields and related areas of science and technology that underlie modern civilization.

IEEE’s roots go back to 1884 when electricity began to become a major influence in society. There was one major established electrical industry, the telegraph, which since the 1840s had come to connect the world with a data communications system faster than the speed of transportation. The telephone and electric power and light industries had just gotten underway.
