International Journal of Automation and Smart Technology (AUSMT) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal devoted to publishing research papers in the fields of automation and smart technology. Currently, the journal is abstracted in INSPEC and DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals). The research areas of the journal include but are not limited to the fields of mechatronics, automation, ambient Intelligence, sensor networks, human-computer interfaces, and robotics. These technologies should be developed with the major purpose to increase the quality of life as well as to work towards environmental, economic and social sustainability for future generations.
This international journal endeavors to provide a worldwide forum for the dynamic exchange of ideas and findings from research of different disciplines from around the world. Also, AUSMT actively seeks to encourage interaction and cooperation between academia and industry along the fields of automation and smart technology.

The research highlight selected by our Guest Editor, Prof. Kuo-Shen Chen, is “Precision positioning with shape-memory-alloy actuators”. In this work, good positioning performance of shape-memory-alloy actuators was achieved by (1) utilizing an inverse hysteresis model to reduce the system’s nonlinearity so that the system can be modeled as a linear model, and (2) constructing the corresponding model-reference-adaptive-system (MRAS) based on this linear model.
Kai-Hung Liang, Kuo-Han Kao, and Szu-Chi Tien, “Precision positioning with shape-memory-alloy actuators,” vol. 3, no. 4, pp. 265-271, 2013 (doi: 10.5875/ausmt.v3i4.209)
The primary purpose of this study is to improve the positioning performance of shape-memory-alloy (SMA) actuators. In order to achieve this goal, the system nonlinearity was reduced with the inversion of a nonlinear model. The system could then be approximated with a linear model. It is easy to construct the corresponding model-reference-adaptive-system (MRAS) based on this linear model. Experimental results show that the MRAS is robust with respect to external disturbances and improves the positioning performance. In addition, with the proposed control scheme, the simulation results will closely match experimental results, which is useful to predict the system performance at the controller-design stage.
