IEEE SMC Magazine

The scope of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Magazine matches the technology areas within the Society’s Field of Interest (FoI). Article subjects include the integration of the theories of communication, control, cybernetics, systems engineering, human-factors engineering, as well as their application to the variety of systems including human-machine, biological, technological, and societal. The Magazine is intended to communicate to readers about the activities and actions of the SMC Society’s governing body, its Technical Committees, and its Chapters. Furthermore, the Magazine will offer educational material such as technical review papers, publish contributions on educational activities, industrial and university profiles, conference news, book reviews, and a calendar of important events.

Potential contributions must follow the guidelines set in the Information for Authors.

A smart building is an emerging technology that has the potential to be used in a variety of ubiquitous computing applications. The majority of existing work for smart building monitoring consumes a significant amount of energy to communicate the sensory data from the building to the end users (EUs). This...

The emerging fourth industrial revolution (industry 4.0) is leading the healthcare system toward more digitalization and smart management. For instance, recent digital healthcare solutions can help dentists/practitioners save time by managing their schedules and managing diagnosis and treatment. The proposed solution is a diagnostic module that can be integrated into...

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a venous reflux disorder disease caused by abnormal blood coagulation in the deep veins. It frequently occurs in the lower limbs of orthopedic patients, pregnant women, and the elderly. DVT can easily cause a pulmonary embolism (PE), a disease with a high mortality rate. Therefore,...

The fog computing paradigm has evolved in the last few years to provide task-scheduling solutions for delay-sensitive Internet of Things (IoT) data. As the resources in fog computing are limited, the challenge is to utilize these computing resources in an efficient way while preserving the deadline requirements of delay-sensitive IoT...

Robots want to collaborate with humans or mimic human actions, needing various flexible sensors. Flexible skin electrodes are used as human–robot interfaces (HRIs), providing an opportunity for sensing interactions between robot and user. However, traditional electrodes with low skin adhesion prevent their applications in human-assisted robots, especially sweat on the...

When multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) perform tasks collaboratively, a relay dispatching method has a beneficial effect on the continuity of the task execution; i.e., the UAVs can take off and land using shared base stations. However, an increase of the number of demands and base stations can lead to...

Contact-rich manipulation tasks are difficult to program to be performed by robots. Traditional compliance control methods, such as impedance control, rely excessively on environmental models and are ineffective in the face of increasingly complex contact tasks. Reinforcement learning (RL) has now achieved great success in the fields of games and...
