Learning outcomes

The course gives an overview of the basics of mechatronic systems and products including the components and characteristics typical for such systems. The course introduces a mechatronics design procedure and provides insight into both advantages and difficulties of mechatronicis design. The overall aim is that the students in relevant subsequent courses will apply this design procedure and in a stepwise manner deepen their proficiency in using it. After completion of the course the students should be able to:

1. Describe the basic building blocks of mechatronic systems (e.g hardware, software, communication, interfacing, sensing, control and actuation)

2. Discuss if a mechatronic design might be feasible as a solution to a given functional problem formulation

3. Skecth such a technical solution and select component types

4. Identify critical problems/design issues and suggest feasible mehtods and tools to solve those

5. Be able to summarize and on smaller problems apply a development model for mechatronic product development

6. Model, simulate and synthesize (but not realize) smaller mechatronic systems and products

7. Give several examples of additional (not directly functional) product requirements typically important for mechatronic products and summarize on a course level the implications of those requirements on the product design

Course main content

The course introduces and gives examples of mechatronic products and the various components, design alternatives, methods and tools used in mechatronics design. Real mecahtronic design problems are identified and solved.

Eligibility

Open to students accepted for studies at masters level. Courses on BSc level in mechanics, SG1130, SG1140 and electrical engineering, MF1016 or the equivalent.

Course has limited seating.
