Prof. Isermann contributes with „Mechatronic Systems: Past Present, Future“ on Friday, October 21, 2022, 10:45 h – 11:30 h EDT = Germany 16:45 h – 17:30 h

Many technical processes and products in the area of mechanical and electrical engineering show increasing integration of mechanics with digital electronics and information processing. This integration is between the components (hardware) and the information-driven functions (software), resulting in integrated systems called mechatronic systems. Their development involves finding an optimal balance between the basic mechanical structure, sensor and actuator implementation, and automatic information processing and overall control. Frequently formerly mechanical functions are replaced by electronically controlled functions, resulting in simpler mechanical structures and increased functionality. The development of mechatronic systems opens the door to many innovative solutions and synergetic effects which are not possible with mechanics or electronics alone. This technical progress has a very strong influence on a multitude of products in the areas of mechanical, electrical, and electronic engineering and is increasingly changing the design, for example, of conventional electromechanical components, machines, vehicles, and precision mechanical devices, and their connection to cloud services. The contribution describes besides of general aspects a systematic design of mechatronic systems, control software development and illustrates mechatronic developments for automobiles, including brake and steering systems and an example of nonlinear control of a high dynamic sports car with parameter and state estimation.
