SECTION  I-5: Mechatronics and Micro-controllers

The micro-controllers is playing a major role in an emerging field called mechatronics.

Many technical processes and products in the area of mechanical and electrical engineering show an increasing integration of mechanics with electronics and information processing. This integration is between the components hardware and the information-driven functions software, resulting in integrated systems called mechatronic systems.

The development of mechatronic systems involves finding an optimal balance between the basic mechanical structure, sensor and actuator implementation, automatic digital information processing and overall control, and this synergy results in innovative solutions. The practice of mechatronics requires multidisciplinary, expertise across a range of disciplines, such as mechanical engineering, electronics, information technology, and decision making theories.
