Mechatronics as a discipline has been around for a while in many different forms. However, it is only recently is has found itself in the centerstage of learning as more and more people realize the multidisciplinary aspects of this field. Mechatronics, thus, might just be the new ‘IT’ field.
Mechatronics, which is also called mechatronics engineering, is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering that focuses on the engineering of both electrical and mechanical systems, and also includes a combination of robotics, electronics, computer, telecommunications, systems, control, and product engineering.
Mechatronics is a multi-disciplinary field which combined relevant aspects of electrical, mechanical, computer and electronics engineering. Over the last decade, application of mechatronics has invaded our modern-day life.
A group of researchers has recently developed a new software aimed at the analysis of energy generation systems based on kites and drones. They used the software to study the behavior of these systems while transforming the kinetic energy of the wind into useful electrical energy.
