This unit aims to integrate the knowledge gained in the electrical and  electronic, mechanical  units to form a foundation for mechatronic units of the Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering (Honours) course. The unit will provide modelling and simulations of complex electromechanical systems and in-depth experience in sensing devices, signal conditioning, actuations and the electromechanical concepts in an application focused format.  Different control principals are covered in a practical sense by implementing the design concepts in the Mechanical actuation and output control concepts will be addressed through considering motor control. The aim will be to develop an automated solution that will require the implementation of complex sensing, control and actuator paradigms in the industry standard MATLAB.
