Mechatronics, the junction between mechanics and electronics, is making a statement in the military and aerospace industries. We see more and more components moving from strictly mechanical to purely electrical or a combination of the two.
Join Design News for a free webinar that will explore the use of mechatronics in aerospace and defense. Presenters include Mica Parks, senior application engineer at MSC Software; and Edwin Romero, product marketing manager, MCU8 Division of Microchip Technology Inc. These two experts will walk you through the emerging trends of mechatronics in the aerospace and defense industries.
Whether you're a supplier of these components or an OEM trying to design them in, this webinar is for you. The experts will discuss how and why these components are making the shift to mechatronics. They will also try to make some predictions as to when is the proper time to jump in and take advantage of the existing and/or coming technology.
Aerospace demands interdisciplinary knowlegde and mechatronics is one of the domains that integrate two important branches of knowledge. It is also important to appreciate the fact that many of the useful things that are now in daily use were invented for space exploration. So i am sure the development of mechatronic systems for aerospace and defence will find uses for the improving the quality of life of common man.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
Design News and Digi-Key presents: Creating & Testing Your First RTOS Application Using MQX, a crash course that will look at defining a project, selecting a target processor, blocking code, defining tasks, completing code, and debugging.
These are the toys that inspired budding engineers to try out sublime designs, create miniature structures, and experiment with bizarre contraptions using sets that could be torn down and reconstructed over and over.
PowerStream is deploying the microgrid at its headquarters to demonstrate how people can generate and distribute their own energy and make their homes and businesses more sustainable through renewables.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
