Mechatronics Engineering Research Areas and Disciplines

Ongoing research on robotics, automation and controls is leading to frequent and numerous technological advances. Recent research in this area includes the development of high-performance, visually guided robots and studies on the control of engineering devices. This is leading to the development of autonomous systems such as robotic vehicles, and smart sensors for assisted living purposes. As well, the designing and developing of service robots and devices for a number of real world applications are being developed. These include the fields of medicine, emergency response, recreation, manufacturing, surveillance, and security.

Mechatronics research is also focusing on the design of precision actuators, the design of microactuators and microfluidic systems, MEMS fabrication, and the development of smart materials-based devices. This work is taking place in collaboration with private industry, where the development and practical uses of novel actuators for precision and automotive applications, and microfluidic chips for applications in genomics and proteomics, are being used.

Mechatronics is also being used in the automotive and aerospace industries, where things such as vibrational control, intelligent and electrical vehicles, and flexible and distributed systems are being analyzed.

Environmentally, mechatronics is being used to research the design, development, and optimization of polymer processing technologies for the manufacture of polyolefin foams and foamed composites. This is allowing for the use of polypropylene in single-charge integral-skin rotational foam molding for both foamed core and solid skin applications (eg. for reinforced plastics of many common items).
