Course specific prerequisites

Mechanics and Mechatronics or Electric circuits

Aim

The course aims to give practical experiences in the field of mechatronics. The focus will be on design, synthesis and analysis of mechatronic products containing control of motion, velocity and position.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • understand and explain how sensing and actuation (measurement and control) can be used to improve the characteristics of a technical system, and to analyze, in a specific case, what is limiting the system performance.
  • describe how sensing, control and actuation are applied for motion-, velocity- and position control in mechatronic system.
  • identify and classify typical mechatronic problems and how they can be addressed.
  • discuss possibilities and limitations of mechatronics and to reflect on its impact on humans and on society such as sustainability, user-friendliness and efficiency.
  • apply a systems perspective, using selected model based methods and mathematical models for analysis and/or synthesis of mechatronic products, and to be able to use computer tools for this purpose.

Content

Measurement devices such as position sensors, velocity sensors, acceleration sensors, flow rate sensors.
Mechanisms for motion transmission. Rotary-to-rotary motion transmission mechanisms, rotary-to-translational motion transmission mechanisms Actuators.
Electric motor and drive technology.
Microcontrollers and design aspects of control of motion, velocity and position.
Examples on how mechatronics can be used to improve product quality and lower cost and improve sustainability.
Design and analysis of mechatronic systems.
Integration of components for system or subsystem design.

Organisation

The course comprises lectures and a number of hands on assignments/laboratory experiments that address important parts of the course. These assignments involve modelling, simulation, microcontrollers in the loop, sensor design and control and design and building of mechatronic product.

Literature

See information on the web page of the course

Examination including compulsory elements

Examination is based on written exam, grading scale TH, and passed assignment/laboration.

The course examiner may assess individual students in other ways than what is stated above if there are special reasons for doing so, for example if a student has a decision from Chalmers on educational support due to disability.
