The IEEE Transactions on AgriFood Electronics (TAFE) is the cutting-edge research publication covering circuits and systems, integrating the needed sensors, actuators, and interfaces, applied to the AgriFood chain of value, including technologies for food related to its production, processing, quality control along the distribution chain, and preservation, which require various integrated sensing systems, actuators, manufacturing, and diverse integration levels such as Printed-Circuit Board (PCB), System in Board (SiB), System on Chip (SoC), System in package (SIP), and packaging techniques.
TAFE key topics are related to Innovative Electronic Solutions including but not limited to the following topics:
- Precision Agriculture
- Smart Livestock Farming
- Climate Change and Global Warming Facing
- Reduction of Pesticides
- Optimization of Resources
- Better Food Production
- Food Safety
- Food Processing
Electronic circuits, systems, and in general electronics are nowadays ready to trigger the change in paradigm for managing all the food chain stages, from smart and precision agriculture, where ultra-low-cost and ultra-low-power solutions are needed, up to the processing phase, where interconnected systems can extract the required information during food processing and packaging. Food shipment is also a critical phase where electronic systems can sustain safe transportation. Finally, at the selling points, the information about the food source and management can be presented, but also the feedback from customers can be collected. All these issues must be based on efficient and targeted electronics.
Electronics and Sensors can dialogue with nature to help farmers and all food chain stakeholders understand and protect the environment, generating useful information and feedback. Circuits and Systems (CAS) are the technological base to target eco-effectiveness, enhancing the resilience of people, communities, and ecosystems, sustaining food and agricultural systems. CAS is needed to build efficient recycling systems and agricultural production with lower economic, and lower social and environmental costs.
TAFE wants to collect all these aspects with a journal targeting complete systems applied to AgriFood, and for this scope, giving IEEE authors the possibility of publishing works application-oriented, covering the use of complete systems to the AgriFood value chain.
TAFE considers original works that enhance the existing body of knowledge. Original review articles and surveys are acceptable, even if new data/concepts are not presented. The results described in the article should not have been submitted or published elsewhere. Expanded versions of conference publications may be submitted. Articles must be intelligible and must be written in standard English.
- Peer Review: Peer review is vital to the quality of published research. Each article submitted to IEEE is evaluated by at least two independent reviewers selected by a member of the publication's editorial board. Learn more about the IEEE peer review process.
- Publication Fees: the publication is Hybrid, so free for standard publications, not free for Open Access mode. Visit the IEEE Author Center for more information on available options.
- Errors in Published Articles: Authors who have detected an error in their published article should contact the Editor-in-Chief shown above to request the publication of a correction. Note that no change may be made to the original article after it is published in IEEE Xplore. Comment articles that discuss an article in this publication will be considered. The authors of the original article will be given the opportunity to reply to the Comment. Submit your Comment article via Submit Manuscript.
