B TECH - MECHATRONICSYou have played enough with toy models,Now its time to build some.
WHAT IS MECHATRONICSMechatronics a combination of Mechanical Electronic Computer Software Control Systems Design DESIGN, CONTROL & MANUFACTUREEg: Robots, Photocopier, Disk Drive
MECHATRONICS• Yasakawa Electric Japan, in 1969 coined the term MECHATRONICS• Initially Mechatronics was referred to system with only Mechanical systemand Electrical components, no Computation was involved.• Example including the Automatic Sliding door, Vending Machine, GarageDoor Opener
SIMPLE EXAMPLES OF MECHATRONICSPhotocopier machine Modern Sewing machine Disk DriverVending Machine Automatic Sliding Door Auto Garage Opener
BENEFITS OF MECHATRONICS Enhanced Feature & Functionality More User Friendly Accuracy Increases Efficiency Cost Effective Flexible Design (Reprogrammable) Safe
