Mechatronics Design aims to provide students with knowledge, skills, and exposure to the integrated design process of mechatronics systems.
It provides the appreciation of the components of mechatronics systems, such as sensors and actuators, the fundamental principal of operation for these components, their strengths and weaknesses, and its operational characteristics. This leads into the design process of integrated iterative design, division of a system into sub-systems, component selection and sizing, and the inclusion of various considerations into a quantifiably justified design.
The subject also provides wider background knowledge of mechatronics, exposing students to current state-of-the-arts and challenges. Design exercises with increasing degrees of complexity will form the continuous assessment in this subject to put the material covered in the lecture into practice.
Topics covered include:
