OBJECTIVE

This course aims to present students the knowledge in the cross area of biomechatronics, medical robotics, and surgical robotics while providing fundamentals of human body as a physiological system. This course will widen their eyesight and increase their creativity to better produce engineering-inspired products, and to engineer tools that will better serve the human beings.

LEARNING OUTCOME

Current state of art, ethical issues and future challenges in biomechatronics.
Analyze human as a physiological system
Make analogies between biological and engineering systems: actuators, sensors, feedback mechanisms, etc.
Analyze, evaluate and compare the design and construction of biomechatronic technologies and surgical robotics.
Design and model simple biomechatronic systems, medical robotics, surgical tools and perform simulations using computational tools.
Produce a technical report incorporating details of designs, models, simulations and outcomes.
Present a technical report on an interdisciplinary subject.
