Emerging Technologies Advisory Board

Click here for results of the Mobility Technology Planning Forum

ETAB Definition
Emerging technologies, as used by the Emerging Technologies Advisory Board (ETAB), consist of new technological discoveries that possess the potential to significantly affect the mobility industries; existing technologies that have impending new or revised applications; and major issues and trends that may have profound, new technology implictions.

ETAB Scope
The Emerging Technologies Advisory Board will serve as an alert mechanism on emerging technologies, and as a mechanism to ensure appropriate SAE response on mobility technology issues that are not readily addressed by operating boards and/or other committees. These issues will tend to be those whose urgency and/or need for a coordinated effort would dictate the need for and involvement of a group that is not encumbered by conventional SAE structure and timing.

ETAB Objectives
• Serve as an alert mechanism.
• Ensure appropriate SAE response.
• Enhance aerospace/ground vehicle interface.
• Serve as SAE's visionary body and help broaden its perspectives.

ETAB Customer
The SAE structure defined as SAE Operating Board Organizations and members.

ETAB Process
• Hold ETAB meetings as required with at least one face to face meeting a year. More interactions via other mechanisms (phone, fax, e-mail, mail and video conferences) are encouraged.

• Sponsor and conduct Mobile Technology Planning Forum (MTPF) meetings.

• Provide input into SAE Structure primarily through the Strategic Planning Committee Process.

• Provide direct input to SAE Board of Directors when appropriate.

• Consider sponsorship of Emerging Technology Sessions at traditional SAE meetings and conferences.
