Leerdoelen This course aims at providing background, mathematical and design tools which are used in the development of mechatronics systems. At the end of the course, the students will be able:
1. to define basic building blocks in mechatronic systems;
2. to determine design requirement of mechatronic systems in order to meet design specifications;
3. to determine appropriate components (sensors and actuators) that meet the requirement;
4. to derive the dynamical model of multi-physical-domain systems;
5. to design optimal control systems based on the design requirement;
6. to analyze the complete systems with respect to external disturbances and uncertainties which may pose a risk to the design;
7. to understand the influence of delays and common nonlinearities for the stability of the system;
8. to design state observers for indirect signal measurement.
This lecture is of use to those engineers developing mechatronic systems but the material should be viewed as important background material for anyone who will be involved with systems design in instrumentation in industry, astronomy, physics and biomedical engineering.
Omschrijving The topics that are covered in the class include:
- Design of mechatronics systems
- Dynamical modeling of multi-physical-domain systems
- Optimal control design
- State observer design

Onderwijsvorm Hoorcollege (LC), Practisch werk (PRC), Werkcollege (T)
(lectures, tutorials, guest lecture. Please note that the first lecture of this course is mandatory. Not being present will lead to un-enrollment from the course.)
Toetsvorm Practisch werk (PR), Schriftelijk tentamen (WE)
(Final grade: Exam grade plus bonus points (maximally 1) potentially awarded for the practical, given by the practical assistants (TA’s) based on excellent performance of the student. The TA’s observe the efforts students put into the practical and judge the quality (performance) of the end product (cart which moves autonomously over a road).)

Entreevoorwaarden The course unit assumes prior knowledge acquired from Signals and Systems (5ECTS), Control Engineering (5ECTS), Bachelor Program IEM, or similar courses.
The course unit is often followed by, or prepares students for Robotics, and all specialization courses in the programme of the new specialization MSc IEM on Smart Systems in Control and Automation in which the learning objectives attained are required as prior knowledge.
