    With the explosively increasing cost/size-effectiveness of computers, mechatronic systems are becoming common in any engineering discipline dealing with the modulation of physical power. In this article, I attempt a definition of mechatronics that will allow for its differentiation as an identifiable field of engineering and then follow this direction to discuss some of the associated design philo...

    The term "mechatronics" is defined to provide a framework for technical and practical considerations. Within this framework, the importance of "intimate and organic" integration in mechatronics product designs is raised. Several issues pertaining to attaining this ideal integration of mechanical, electronic controls, and system engineering in mechatronics product designs are cited. To further adva...

    Intelligence and flexibility are essential in a mechatronic product. To achieve the primary function of an integrated system, it is essential that the functional interaction and spatial integration between mechanical, electronic, control, and information technologies be accomplished in a synergistic way. Sensors are as important in the mechatronic system as the senses are to the human being. While... View full abstract»

    In this article we try to summarize the field of intelligent control (IC) for human-machine systems (HMS) from a subjective point of view. Mechatronic components have become intelligent from integrating mechanical, electrical and software intelligence in minimum space, certainly an important step in building IC systems. Because of this, and of successes using artificial neural networks, fuzzy logi... View full abstract»

    Motion control is now recognized as a key technology in mechatronics. The robustness of motion control will be represented as a function of stiffness and a basis for practical realization. Target of motion is parameterized by control stiffness which could be variable according to the task reference. However, the system robustness of motion always requires very high stiffness in the controller. The... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a new speed servo system for a wide speed range based on doubly coprime factorization and instantaneous speed observer. The proposed speed controller is a new two-degrees-of-freedom speed servo system considering the robust stability according to inertia variation, which is designed on the basis of doubly coprime factorization and disturbance observer. In an ultra-low speed ran... View full abstract»
