Description

Mechatronics represents a unifying interdisciplinary and intelligent engineering science paradigm. It describes the synergy of education in science and technology, knowledge, learning, thinking, a way of working, practices and professional skills. Interdisciplinary mechatronics is regarded as a philosophy that supports new ways of thinking, innovations and novel possibilties and new design methodologies that aim to achieve optimum functional synergy. Interdisciplinary mechatronics is supported by a strong engineering science foundation beyond the traditional disciplinary boundaries and features open-ending learning chains with ability to fuse new knowledge and experiences through lifelong learning process. Human adaptive and friendly mechatronics (HAFM) represents the new era of mechatronics. It aims to provide new methodologies and tools to design and to build new human-oriented machines and systems characterized by harmony and coexistence with its human user. © 2013 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
