Course teachers: Prof. dr.sc. Joško Petrić, Prof. dr.sc. Danijel Pavković
Course objectives: The Mechatronics concerns the synergistic application of mechanics, electronics and control systems. The course objective is to get acquainted with modeling, analysis and synthesis of mechatronic systems. After completing the course, students should acquire basic knowledge and skills on the analysis and synthesis of mechatronic products or production processes. This implies knowledge of basic concepts from mechatronics, knowledge of the basics of modeling and control of mechanical systems, and knowledge of the basic elements of a mechatronic system. It also provides an overview of methods and practical solutions of digital microprocessor control, with reference to digital control elements, microcomputers, connection circuits, sensors and actuators, and time-sensitive (digital) control algorithms. The course objective is to complement the theoretical background of lectures with exercises on experimental laboratory systems.
Exected learning outcomes:
• To apply advanced knowledge in the field of natural and technical sciences to solve complex technical problems in the interdisciplinary context.
• To apply acquired knowledge about the elements of the smart technical systems and processes, and their interactions throughout their entire life cycle.
• To use advanced techniques for modelling smart technical systems and processes in the function of creative solving of complex problems.
