Intelligent systems refer broadly to computer embedded or controlled systems, machines and devices that possess a certain degree of intelligence. IJISTA, a peer-reviewed double-blind refereed journal, publishes original papers featuring innovative and practical technologies related to the design and development of intelligent systems. Its coverage also includes papers on intelligent systems applications in areas such as manufacturing, bioengineering, agriculture, services, home automation and appliances, medical robots and robotic rehabilitations, space exploration, etc.


 Topics covered include

  • Robotics and mechatronics technologies
  • Artificial intelligence and knowledge based systems technologies
  • Real-time computing and its algorithms
  • Embedded systems technologies
  • Actuators and sensors
  • Mico/nano technologies
  • Sensing and multiple sensor fusion
  • Machine vision, image processing, pattern recognition and speech recognition and synthesis
  • Motion/force sensing and control
  • Intelligent product design, configuration and evaluation
  • Real time learning and machine behaviours
  • Fault detection, fault analysis and diagnostics
  • Digital communications and mobile computing
  • CAD and object oriented simulations

More on this journal...

IJISTA aims at providing an international framework for researchers working from perspectives of different technical disciplines to discuss technological and scientific problems related to the design, development and applications of intelligent devices, machines and systems.


IJISTA helps academics, researchers, engineers and technologists, working in the broad areas of intelligent systems design and development related technologies including robotics, mechatronics, artificial intelligence, computer engineering, electronics, advanced computing and modelling, as well as their applications in manufacturing, bioengineering, agriculture, horticulture, space and medical fields, to disseminate information and to learn from each other|s work.


IJISTA publishes peer-reviewed, original papers and state-of-the-art review papers which cover new developments, innovations and future trends in the field, as well as new methodologies, techniques and case studies. Technical notes, briefs and reports are also published to discuss new technical concepts and developments, new applications of existing techniques. Special Issues devoted to important topics in the broad context of intelligent systems will occasionally be published.
