Transactions on SMC: Systems


The scope of the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics: Systems includes the field of systems engineering. It also includes issue formulation, analysis and modeling, decision making, and issue interpretation for any of the systems engineering lifecycle phases associated with the definition, development, and deployment of large systems. Other topics include systems management, systems engineering processes, and a variety of systems engineering methods such as optimization, modeling and simulation.

IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Part A: Systems and Humans was renamed IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics: Systems on January 1, 2013.

This article investigates human-driven robots via physical interaction, which is enhanced by integrating the human partner’s motion intention. A human motor control model is employed to estimate the human partner’s motion intention. A system observer is developed to estimate the human’s control input in this model, so that force sensing...

Event-triggered formation control of linear continuous-time multiagent systems is studied in this article. A complex-valued Laplacian is adopted by the local information of desired formation. For each agent, an event-triggering mechanism based on the neighboring information at event-triggering time instants is presented and continuous communications between neighboring agents are avoided....
