Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering

TASE10YEARBAutomation plays an increasingly important role in the global economy and in our daily lives. Automation is changing manufacturing as well as healthcare, security, and energy. The IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (T-ASE) publishes new abstractions, algorithms, theory, methodologies, models, systems, and case studies that can be applied across industries to significantly advance efficiency, quality, productivity, and reliability for society.

IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (T-ASE) is published quarterly since July 2004. T-ASE and its sibling publication, the IEEE Transactions on Robotics (T-RO) are published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and edited by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.

The T-ASE Impact Factor is 2.162 and our acceptance rate is 17%.

December 2011: T-ASE has completed the IEEE 5-year publication review and has been approved by the IEEE Publications, Financial, and Technical Committees. Congratulations to everyone involved!

Articles and Samples from T-ASE


The new Transactions defines Automation very broadly, including applications such as DNA chip and biological sample handling, agriculture, security, demining, healthcare, transportation, as well as the myriad of applications related to manufacturing.

bar codeT-ASE is theoretical yet has a wide readership among practioners in industry. T-ASE publishes foundational research on Automation: scientific methods and technologies that improve efficiency, productivity, quality, and reliability, a variety of results related to methods, machines, and systems operating in structured environments over extended periods and the explicit structuring of environments.

T-ASE dispels the conventional wisdom that Automation is limited to only manufacturing. For example, we welcome papers on DNA or pharmaceutical testing; automation methods and intelligent systems for hospitals and health delivery; mobile surveillance robots and systems that operate over extended periods for security; real-time inspection algorithms using computer vision; intelligent and flexible manufacturing, survice, and supply chain coordination; CAD, assembly, new grippers, fixtures, and a variety of subjects about putting intelligent machines and systems into practice.
