Synopsis

Students will learn the planning and communication skills required to undertake a group project. An introduction will be given to the evolution of mechatronic technologies, design tools and methodologies, concurrent engineering design support tools, mechatronic design process and requirement interpretation. The acquisition of these skills will be motivated and tested by applying them in a group project to design and build a mechatronic system. The mechatronic system will be based on a microcontroller together with appropriate mechanical structure, sensors and actuators.

Objectives

The aim of this unit is to provide a focus in the second semester of level 3 of the mechatronics program where studies from the earlier stages of the course are integrated into whole design tasks involving group work. Additional project management elements including planning, management and documentation are included in this unit. The application of project management techniques to the level 3 project will provide additional context and motivation for this material.
