The July 2014 issue of the IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and
Engineering (T-ASE) is now available online.

This issue features a Guest Editorial: "Can Drones Deliver?" by Raff 
D'Andrea that quantifies the cost effectiveness and energy efficiency of 
drone UAVs for home delivery of commercial products.

The issue includes 23 regular and 7 short papers on automation results in 
optical manipulation of biological cells, part pose statistics, electron 
microscopy, magnetic micro-robots, hospital operating room scheduling, fabric 
inspection, reinforcement learning for dynamic zero-sum games, smelting plant 
scheduling, and tracking surgical instruments with dual Kinect sensors.


This page has the Table of Contents link, which allows free access to
Editorials, Abstracts of all papers, and to the full text of "Open Access"
papers (via the .pdf links).
