OverviewThis course builds on the skills introduced in MCHA3000 Mechatronic System Design I. Students deepen their knowledge on the mechatronic system design process and integrate further tools and skills developed in previous courses. It also develops concepts related to robotics applications, plus advanced topics of mechatronic system design like design for testing and fault-tolerant design.A design project of a complete robotic system with specific dynamic characteristics and sensor requirements is undertaken. The course provides a real life experience related to the practice of mechatronics engineering.LEARNING OUTCOMES1. Adopt modelling hypothesis and obtain mathematical models of complex systems2.
