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.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
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.
