Introduction To Mechatronics
This course deals with modeling, the performance characteristics and application of
microprocessors, analog and digital electronics to modern mechatronics systems and intelligent manufacturing – particularly smart sensors, controllers and actuators.
To presents the concept and components of mechatronics systems in a structured way.
At the end of this course, the student should be able to:
- Integrate multidisciplinary knowledge in electronics, mechanical systems, and computer science.
- Implement Mechatronics systems through programming and integration of PLCs, sensors, and actuators.
- Program and integrate of microcontrollers, sensors, and actuators.
- Learn about safety and economical considerations for Mechatronics systems.
A student on completing this course is expected to:
- Experience building controllers of angular position and speed using DC motors, stepper motors, and different types of power converters such as H-bridges.
- Construct a Mechatronics system included in the textbook or in other literature sources, not studied in class, complementing it with additional literature review and
- presenting the results to the class.
- Create an organized Mechatronics folder with all the information studied in class, handouts, homework, tests, and reports with experimental results.
- Outline fundamental concepts and implementation requirements of renewable energy systems. Create an energy audit for an average household.
