ASME is built with the most modern web standards, which give you a better & more reliable experience.
in 2014, Parker Hannifin Corp. plans to commercialize an exoskeleton developed at Vanderbilt University's Center for Intelligent Mechatronics, which enables people with severe spinal cord injuries to stand, walk, sit, and climb stairs. Read Article
The term "mechatronics" was first used 40 years ago and today, a multitude of companies embrace its principles. It emphasizes that mechanical, electrical, control, and software engineers all play a vital role in building electromechanical systems. Traditionally, companies that made mechanical systems let mechanical engineers lead, while those that made electronics assigned the lead to software and electrical engineers. However ,those lines of responsibility are being redefined. Read Article
MEMS are semiconductor chip-size devices with moving parts that act as sensors. These devices are revolutionizing the way we design and manufacture hi-tech equipment such as GPS systems, rear-projection TVs, and the routing of internet traffic through optical cables. Unfortunately, the aerospace industry has been slow to use this kind of technology because of the difficulty in testing them in real-life situations. However, this may soon change. Read Article

is where electronics meets mechanical engineering, computing, optics, actuators, sensors, digital controls, and robotics. From its inception in computer-controlled machining and factory automation, mechatronics has incorporated these engineering disciplines and more, plus bioengineering and nanotechnology. Mechatronic devices include disk drives, cameras, imaging systems, and antilock brakes. Their complexity spurs the development of multiphysics in simulation and engineering analysis.
