Design, Modeling and Simulation of Mechatronic Systems 2008-01-1471

This paper describes a real time application of mechatronics with constructional details along with simulation results. Applications like part tracking and automatic speed control are of interest to the industry and the academic alike. Based on certain specific information about the system a control program is prepared and embedded in a microcontroller, so that it responds repetitively to various input parameters. To widen the range of control, it is necessary that a huge database of input-output information has to be provided to the microcontroller. In this paper, different sensing and actuating elements and details of microcontrol programming are presented with reference to typical applications such as component recognition strategy using a vision system, a remote controlled mobile robot, tracking system of moving components, and automatic speed control of laboratory diesel engine model. Some simulation results of the control are also presented.
