Editorial: Welcome to Mechatronics 2014 in Karlstad, Sweden

With the 14th Mechatronics Forum International Conference, we celebrate 25 years of Mechatronics Forum conferences. Ever since the first conference in 1989 in Lancaster, the conference has succeeded in bringing together mechatronics experts, academic researchers and industrial practitioners alike, from all over the world in order to present and discuss new results and trends in mechatronics and to act as a stimulus for intensifying mechatronic approaches in research and product development. With its track record, the Mechatronics Forum conferences are the oldest series of mechatronics conferences still running.

With the 2014 event, jointly organised by Karlstad University and the University of Skövde with financial support from the City of Karlstad, the conference sets foot on Swedish soil for the second time in its history. This conference would not have been possible without the dedication en enthusiasm of many key players. Philip Moore and Andrew Plummer were among the people guiding the conference from the side of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Rudolf Scheidl, chairman of the preceding conference in Linz, provided much useful feedback and stimulated us to continue along the path of mini-symposia. Maria Kull handled all the registration issues as well as the local arrangements. Members of the International Programme Committee took various roles, not only in dedicating valuable time to actively reviewing submitted papers but also in identifying Keynote Speakers and in introducing new faces to the conference community. Through attracting new research communities and groups to the conference, the conference is continuously being renewed and enriched. This also demonstrates the high and ever increasing relevance of mechatronics as a research and applications field, which is the basis for the long-standing success of the conference series.

Mechatronics is sometimes associated with large complex systems. While such systems obviously provide some “show cases” for mechatronics, mechatronics becomes more and more important in our everyday life. Today, many consumer products are to some degree mechatronic products. Furthermore, the papers in this conference witness of the increasing role for mechatronics in environmental and social sustainability. Examples of the former are energy harvesting and minimization of energy requirements, for instance miniature sensors that harvest their own energy. Examples of the latter are many papers related to assisted living, which is important for an ageing population and for an inclusive society in which people with impairments can participate actively.

The proceedings of the 14th conference contain about 90 papers which are the result of a reviewing process that started off with over 140 abstracts submitted. This shows that the reviewing process has been rigorous to ensure that only papers of highest quality were accepted for publication and oral presentation. At the same time, many of the final papers included in the proceedings are authored or co-authored by research students, showing that the conference not only seeks to include new groups of senior researchers and industrial practitioners, but also embraces talented young researchers.

The Keynote talks will be delivered by four distinguished speakers: Prof. David Bradley will present “Mechatronics – Past, Present and Future”, Prof. Robert Gao “Intelligent Mechatronics for Advanced Manufacturing”, Prof. Shigeki Sugano “Human Symbiotic Robot - Design and Human Interaction”, and Prof. Rüdiger Dillmann “Status and recent progress towards interactive cognitive robot systems”.

The aim of this publication is to present the research results in mechatronics that are now state of the art, and indicate the possible future lines of development. The reader will appreciate the current challenges in modeling, control, actuation, sensing of mechatronics systems and the associated applications in industry and in society.
