combination of mechanical engineering, electronics ,controlsengineering, and computers.
Mechatronics is adding intelligence to amechanical designs. As technology advances,designs that were once purely mechanical arenow best done with electronics or a combinationof both.
Perhaps the best way to understand mechatronics is tolook at example applications where microcontrollers haveenhanced or replaced the mechanical and analogcomponents of a design.
Electronic Fuel Injection
Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) works on two major principles. The first is the ability to measure the mass of theair flowing through the intake manifold. The second is theability to measure the exhaust gas oxygen content.
