Mechatronics Laboratory

302 Transportation Building
Directors: Daniel Block and R.S. Sreenivas

Mechatronics is the synergistic integration of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronics, computer science, and control theory for the design of intelligent systems. Mechatronic systems are used in automotive systems, aerospace systems, consumer electronics, and robotics. The Mechatronics Laboratory was established in 1995 through a grant from John Deere Corporation to support project-based education in mechatronics and real-time embedded systems. The Mechatronics Laboratory has eight fully equipped workbenches for design, construction, and analysis of mechatronic systems.

The lab supports the following courses:
