Background
  • TRA Established in 1984
  • Most cited Robotics Journal
  • Member surveys in 1996 and 2000
  • 66 of respondents want another Transactions
  • Fall 2001, PAB, President decide to explore
    options

4
New Publications Committee
  • Volz appoints 12 members in Jan 2002
  • Over 200 emails exchanged

5
Scope of TRA
Theory
Automation
Robotics
Systems
6
Robotics v. Automation
  • Computers, physical world, geometry
  • Both engage EE, CS, IE, OR, and ME
  • robota coined in 1923
  • automation coined in 1948
  • RAS defines automation fairly narrowly -gt
    15-20 of submitted papers to TRA

7
IEEE Standard Dictionary (1996)
  • Automation. the implementation of a process by
    automatic means.
  • Automatic. Pertaining to a function, operation ,
    process, or device that, under specified
    conditions, functions without intervention by a
    human operator .

8
Automation New Applications Areas
  • BioTechnology and Health
  • Security and Maintenance
  • High Precision Manufacturing
  • Food Handling and Processing
  • Service Industries

9
Automation New Topics in Design/Mfg
  • Automatic Identification Systems (bar codes,
    RF-ids)
  • Collaborative and Concurrent Design Systems
  • Disassembly and De-manufacturing
  • Green and Sustainable Manufacturing
  • Internet-Based Systems
  • Life-cycle Design

    industry and academia
  • Attract new Authors and Papers

15
Caveats
  • Reduce fruitful communication/cross fertilization
    between Robotics and Automation?
  • How to differentiate from existing journals?

16
Competitive Survey
