Welcome to the homepage of IFAC Technical Committee on Mechatronic Systems!
This is one of the younger IFAC technical committees, but one that has been growing at a rapid pace in response to the increasing requirements to design and construct/manufacture engineering systems and industrial products that are becoming increasingly complex. This growth is reflected in the membership of TC4.2. The membership also reflects the truly multidisciplinary nature of mechatronics, as defined in the "Scope" section.
Mechatronics, from a control engineer's perspective, is a synergistic approach to utilize advanced control, sensing and actuation methodologies in a variety of applications across many fields such as robotics and automation, motion control, automotive systems, biomedical systems, micro and nanoscale systems and information storage systems. If you are interested in mechatronics and control engineering, please consider participating in activities organized by the Technical Committee on Mechatronic Systems. We host mechatronics sessions at IFAC World Congresses and organize IFAC Symposia on Mechatronic Systems. I look forward to meeting you at these events.
