Mechatronics Training

What is Mechatronics?
The word "Mechatronics"appeared for the first time in Japan in 1969.

Mechatronics = Mechanics + Electronics + Computing
The term Mechatronics was introduced by the Japanese company "Yaskawa Elektric Corporation" (company founded in 1915.and since 1971 it has protected as a trade name). Mechatronics is a synergistic combination of precision engineering electronic control and mechanic systems .It is the science that exists at the interface among the other five disciplines:-
  • Mechanics
  • Electronics
  • Information
  • Automation
  • Robotics

Why Study Mechatronics?
Mechatronics has been popular in Japan and Europe for many years but has been slow to gain industrial and academic acceptance as a field and practice in Great Britain and the United States. In the past, machine and product design has been the domain of mechanical engineers. After the machine was designed by mechanical engineers, solutions to control and programming problems were added by software and computer engineers. This sequential-engineering approach usually resulted in less-than-optimal designs and is now recognized as less than optimal itself.

Where do Mechatronic Engineers work?
Mechatronic devices or "smart" devices have become common in our technologically advanced society. Mechatronics engineers can work in any company that develops, designs or manufactures and markets "smart" devices. Opportunities exist in manufacturing, sales and as well as research. Mechatronic devices have crept into everyday life.

Examples Include:

  • Robots
  • Anti-lock brakes, a sophisticated control system takes over the braking function when
  • the sensors recognize one or more wheels are locking up.
  • Photocopiers
  • Computer disk drives
  • Humidity sensitive clothes dryers and windshield wipers .How do these devices
  • "know" if clothes are still damp or drizzle is hitting the windshield? Sensors, that's how.

Subjects of Mechatronics:

  • Mechanical Engineering and materials science
  • Electronic engineering
  • Computer engineering
  • Computer science Systems and control engineering
  • Optomechanics
  • Robotics
