Institution of Mechanical Engineers, London
Free and open to all
Last year the European Commission funded six major projects in strategic robotics research. This lecture will provide an overview of these projects and the progress made so far. Further in-depth content on two of these projects on standard robotic interface and multi-sensory data fusion will also be discussed, both of which are seen as the building blocks to the future of space robotics research.

Xiu-Tian Yan: Professor in Mechatronic Systems Technology and the Director of Space Mechatronic Systems Technology Laboratory (SMeSTech), University of Strathclyde
Xiu-Tian Yan is a Professor in Mechatronic Systems Technology and the Director of Space Mechatronic Systems Technology Laboratory (SMeSTech), based in the Department of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management of the University of Strathclyde. Through over 30 years’ work and investigation, he has developed a portfolio of research topics in mechatronic system design including the development and application of ‘mechatronic design process models’, modelling and simulation of these systems, and techniques in prototyping these systems for validation. He has managed over 40 projects in his research fields funded by the UK government funding bodies,European Commission, international funding bodies and industrial partners. . He is the Chairman of Robotics and Mechatronics Technical Professional Network of the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
He received his PhD from Loughborough University of Technology. He is a Chartered Engineer and a Fellow of Institution of Engineering and Technology and a Fellow of IMechE. His research interests include mechatronic systems design, robotics especially in recent years in multi-perspective mechatronic system modelling, design and simulation, computer support mechatronic systems design using AI techniques, knowledge intensive product modelling and simulation, the proactive computer support of product life-cycle synthesis, and Product generalisation and configuration design and constraint based insightful engineering design support. He has organized and chaired four international conferences. He has published over 200 technical papers in major international journals and conferences and edited or wrote 6 books in the fields.
