ENGG 3490 - Introduction to Mechatronic Systems Design W (3-2) [0.75]

This course covers the design of mechatronic systems, which are synergistic, combinations of components and controls drawn from mechanical engineering, electronics, control engineering, and computer science. The course emphasizes the integration of these areas through the design process employing the two skills of (1) modeling, analysis, control design, and computer simulation of dynamic systems, and (2) experimental validation of models, analysis and the understanding of the key issues of hardware implementation. The two skills are developed though assignments emphasizing analytical analysis with complementary laboratory exercises. The material covered includes mechatronic system design; a review of kinematics, electronics, modeling, simulation, signals and control; control architectures; sensors including vision; and actuators.
