reliable and versatile systems.What is the Mechatronics? Mechatronics basically refers to mechanical electrical systems and is centred on mechanics. electronics. The term "mechatronics" was first assigned by Mr. make possible the generation of simpler. computing and control which. in 1969. 6 . more economical. a senior engineer of the Japanese company Yaskawa. Tetsuro Mori. combined.
