Mechatronics is a term that describes the integration of different engineering disciplines. Today, engineers are leveraging the power of digital engineering to incorporate physical designs with embedded electronics.
Due to the advances of digital tools, engineers can design their parts virtually with all the integrated subsystems required: batteries, circuits, sensors, hydraulics, and more. Simulation lets engineers test their designs to ensure they can be assembled and have proper integration between the mechanical subsystems and the part’s electrical components.
We will discuss:
- How mechanical engineers can integrate electrical components
- How to optimize the design for cross-disciplinary engineering
- How online digital tools are bringing together engineers from different areas of study
