By Matthew Reisz, From the Times Higher Education Supplement

A renowned expert on robot design who pursued "the age-old dream" of building an intelligent "living" machine has died.

Ulrich Nehmzow was born in Kulmbach, Germany on 18 September 1961 and educated in Hamburg and then at the Technical University of Munich. Even at school he impressed teachers and classmates by creating a mobile mechanical toy controlled by a light sensor.

For postgraduate study, Professor Nehmzow moved to the University of Edinburgh. He was to remain in the UK for his whole career, apart from a year's sabbatical at the University of Wollongong in Australia.

A post at the University of Manchester was followed by a senior lectureship in computer science at the University of Essex and finally, from 2008, a professorship in cognitive robotics at the University of Ulster.
