Abstract

This paper summarises the content of the associated keynote presentation, one objective of which is to outline the development of the Advanced Control and Test Laboratory (ACTLab) at the University of Bristol, since its original inception in 1999, together with an appraisal of the research that is conducted in the laboratory. Hence, aspects of our work on adaptive control, dynamically substructured systems, data fusion and associated experimentation will be included in the talk. The other objective of the presentation is to place due emphasis on ACTLab links with Japanese researchers, since they have had (and continue to have) a very significant impact on the laboratory - both in terms of fundamental concepts and the associated application and implementation of the ideas.
