Mechatronics at AME

Mechatronics is the synergistic integration of mechanical, electrical, control, and computer systems to create functional products. It has become the enabling technology responsible for many industrial innovations in all economic sectors including: automotives, alternative energy, aerospace, electronics, defense, etc. Within the research community, the field of mechatronics generally covers topics such as robotics, Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS), intelligent systems, automated guided vehicles, and smart materials.

Research focuses on variety of robot designs and control methodologies. A major challenge in this field pertains to exploitation of bio-inspired systems that can adapt to their surroundings while efficiently navigating cluttered and unpredictable terrains. This includes legged robotics systems traversing up walls or across ground.
