RAVEN Eyes Around the Instrument from Modular Axis Sharing

One of the current limitations in MIS robotic surgery is the limited field of view due to the use of a sole rigid 3D–imaging camera. This study proposes a modular 2D flexible imaging probe that can be integrated to the teleoperated surgical robot …


ROS-based Telerobotic Application for Transmitting High-bandwidth Kinematic Data Over a Limited Network

The Robotic Operating System (ROS) has provided a set of packages for Networked Telerobotic Systems (NTS) to transport high-bandwidth ROS topics over a websocket communication. The main concern was to transport high-bandwidth sensory and kinematic …


Simultaneous Localization and Mapping in the Epoch of Semantics: A Survey

Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) with an astonishing research history of over three decades has brought the concept to the door step of truly autonomous robotic systems. The concept has advanced beyond the map building and …


Patch-based Stereo Direct Visual Odometry Robust to Illumination Changes

In this paper, we present a patch-based direct visual odometry (DVO) that is robust to illumination changes at a sequence of stereo images. Illumination change violates the photo-consistency assumption and degrades the performance of DVO, thus, it …


Solution to Mixed H2/H∞ Control for Discrete–time Systems with (x,u,v)–dependent Noise

In this paper, the stochastic H2/H∞ control problem for linear discrete–time systems with (x,u,v)–dependent noise is studied. By applying the leader–follower stochastic game approach, the disturbance is treated as the follower and the control …

About this journal

The International Journal of Control, Automation, and Systems (IJCAS) is a joint publication of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems (ICROS) and The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers (KIEE), which is published as bimonthly periodical as of 2003. The two institutes have been discussing the launch of a joint publication, since 2001; by discontinuing the former English journals of their respective institutes, they aim to establish a high-quality archival journal. In addition to introducing a new journal name, the IJCAS, the joint steering committee has set a new publication direction. To broaden the scope of the journal, the committee has invited distinguished scholars from abroad as well as from Korea to serve on the editorial board. I am honored to work with them to make this a truly international journal.

Our desire is to provide a forum for original research results on theory, design, experiments, and applications in all technical areas of control, automation, and systems. The journal covers three strongly related research areas including control, automation, and systems. This type of coverage is unique and it is the only journal covering these three areas combined in the world. To become a premier journal, however, we warmly welcome your active participation and contribution, not only by submitting your precious works but also by making constructive suggestions for improving of the journal.
