Welcome to the IEEE IES Technical Committee on Factory Automation (TCFA) website!
TCFA aims to promote synergic interactions between experts from industry and academia (in order) to foster the development and adoption of scientific methods, models, and tools for the efficient design and operation of industrial and factory automation systems.
The technical scope of the TCFA encompasses a broad range of technologies relevant to industrial and factory automation systems, including communication systems, real-time and networked embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, in-vehicle systems, automated control, intelligent and cooperative robotics, computer vision, and human-machine interaction. Desirable properties in the context of industrial and factory automation, such as security, fault-tolerance and dependability are also addressed. In order to disseminate novel ideas and emerging trends, research results and practical achievements, the TCFA members regularly meet at IEEE-IES conferences. They also actively participate in the organization of technical tracks, special sessions and workshops at IEEE-IES conferences, and run special sections of the IEEE-IES Transactions and journals.
In this web site you can find information about the activities undertaken by the Technical Committee. If you wish to be involved in these activities, join the TCFA. To keep up to date with the TC Factory Automation upcoming activities and subscribe to the TCFA mailing list.
