The word mechatronics is composed of “mecha” from mechanism and the “tronics” from electronics. It is the synergistic integration of mechanical engineering, with electronics and intelligent computer control in the design and manufacturing of industrial products and processes. Mechatronics generally involves (i) implementing electronics control in a mechanical system (ii) enhancing existing mechanical design with intelligent control and (iii) replacing mechanical component with an electronic solution. This course will cover all aspects related with mechatronics such as sensors and transducers, actuators and mechanisms, signal conditioning, microprocessors and microcontrollers, modeling & system response and design and mechatronics.INTENDED AUDIENCE :Mechanical/Electrical/Electronic under graduate and post graduate studentsPREREQUISITES : NoneINDUSTRIES SUPPORT :Automobile, DRDO, Railways
