Following the successful start of the workshop series “Mechatronic Design” in 2012, the 2nd Workshop on Mechatronic Design Paris 2013 was held in cooperation with LCM’s scientific partner Institut Supérieur de Mécanique de Paris (Supméca). Scientists from seven European nations and Japan participated in the workshop.
The workshop presented and discussed research results concerning approaches, methods and theories for model-based mechatronic system design. Topics included:
- Model-based design and optimization of electromechanical actuators
- Evaluation of architectures in mechatronic systems engineering
- Mechatronic design of machine tools
- Improving robustness of mechatronic systems
- Biomimetic mechatronic design
- System engineering / safety analysis integrated design process
- Advantages of using reduced system models in the model-based development of mechatronic systems
- From dynamic structural modification to concurrent passive and active control in mechatronic system design
- A mechatronic conceptual approach to high-value cake manufacturing automation
The workshop was organized in cooperation between LCM and the Institut Supérieur de Mécanique de Paris (Supméca) by Dr. Jean-Yves Choley (Supméca).
Among the participating institutions were Institut Clément Ader INSA Toulouse, Site de l’Ecole des Mines d’Alès, Université de Technologie de Compiègne, Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology, University of Naples Federico II, UEC Tokyo Ming Lab, Flanders’ Mechatronics Technology Centre, Università degli Studi di Padova and University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.
