As noted in the Table of Contents below, the April 2013 issue of the IEEE 
Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (T-ASE) features a 
Guest Editorial by Vijay Kumar and SK Gupta on Exciting Trends in 
Manufacturing, new results from Efi Fogel and Danny Halperin on the 
open-source Computational Geometry Algorithms Library (CGAL) which offers 
guarantees of correctness, and papers on innovative topics such as using 
mobile phones as seismologic sensors, new sensors and actuators for micro- 
and nano-scale automation, and applications in steelmaking, trains, and 
power generation:
