CONTENT

This course introduces mechatronics approach to smart product design. Specific topics inludes: the nature of mechatronics design; overview of mechatronic devices; overview of the integrated systems design; mechatronics product development strategy; design methods; case studies; reverse engineering (disassembly and analysis of commercially available mechatronic devices). The course imparts knowledge that will enable students to design a 'smart product' that meets market needs.

OBJECTIVE

To acquaint the students with system level design process on an example mechatronic system design project.
Mechatronics system design deals with the design of controlled electromechanical
systems by the integration of functional elements from a multitude of disciplines. It starts
with thinking how the required function can be realized by the combination of different
subsystems according to a systematic step-by-step engineering design approach applied
to a realistic mechatronics design problem.

LEARNING OUTCOME

Students should:
apply a systematic step-by-step engineering design approach applied to a realistic mechatronics design problem.

learn how the systematic engineering design process can support development process of complex, multidisciplinary mechatronic systems.
synthesize the knowledge and skills gained in their undergraduate classes within the design of a realistic design project.
develop the ability to address a broad range of requirements, including most of the following: performance, economic, marketing, environmental, sustainability, manufacturing, ethics, safety, social, and regulatory.
design a controlled electromechanical systems by the integration of functional elements from a multitude of disciplines.

Cases There are three main parts in the course work: (i) A set of design reports (ii) a term project where a design problem is formulated, analyzed and solved, and (iii) Laboratory Assignments. The term project will be based on the application of a step by step engineering design process to a problem assigned in the course. Within the project, there will be following deliverables towards the end of the term
