  6. 6. What is the Mechatronics? Mechatronics basically refers to mechanical electrical systems and is centred on mechanics , electronics, computing and control which, combined, make possible the generation of simpler, more economical, reliable and versatile systems. The term &quot;mechatronics&quot; was first assigned by Mr. Tetsuro Mori, a senior engineer of the Japanese company Yaskawa, in 1969.

  12. 12. Hardware, Software, and Firmware Hardware is the name given to the physical devices and circuitry of the computer. Software refers to the programs written for the computer. Firmware is the term given to programs stored in ROMs or in Programmable devices which permanently keep their stored information.
  13. 13. Robotics Curricula Introduction to Robotics: History, Asimov’s laws, Different types of robot platforms (humanoid, Car-like, holonomic & non-holonomic, miniature, manipulators, animators, indoor, outdoor, space robots, medical robots, under water robots, locomotion, areal robots, educational robots, legged robots, mobile robots, robot simulators etc.) Path Planning: objectives and methods (Voronoi, Bug, potential field, visibility, reactive, road map). Environment modeling:   the general meaning and the applied techniques (occupancy grid, topological graphs, integrated, 3D modelling). Distributed sensors: IR, laser, sonar, E-nose, vision, artificial skin, artificial ear etc. Robot kinematics and inverse kinematics Sensors Integration: advantages, weaknesses and methods (Bayes network, Kalman filter, fuzzy logic, particle filter). Robot actuators: Hydraulic, pneumatic and electric drives (DC, Ac, servo, and stepper motors) Self localization: Introduction and techniques (SLAM, Markov, Bayes network, expectation maximizing, maximum likelihood).
