Automation, and closely related information systems are, naturally innate, and integrated ingredients of all kinds of objects, systems, and social relations of the present day reality. This is the reason why this contribution treats the phenomena and problems of this automated/information society in a historical manner with a wider, structural framework, giving special emphasis to TECIS. The classical International Federation of Automatic Control's (IFAC) topic of social effects is continually evolving and is moving towards human-machine cooperation. This means that automation technologies require a more interdisciplinary educated workforce. In addition developing countries need access to the newest technology to efficiently and effectively improve their industries. This contribution benchmarks selected important development trends of the Technical committee 9.5 (TECIS). It outlines the social aspects of automation, cost orientated automation, semi-automated assembly and disassembly (end of life), mechatronics systems and robotics, cooperative robotics, engineering ethics and diversity and inclusion in automation. As well as looking forward to future development trends it also looks backwards at the history of automation in the context of TECIS.
