Mechatronic engineers utilize mechanical engineering, computer science and controls theory to create products that are both efficient and adaptable. Mechatronic engineers work with industrial systems, artificial intelligence, and smart devices to create, implement and test such systems. They also design safety processes for dangerous activities, such as underwater exploration. An engineer may research the cost, practicality and benefits of their designed equipment.

The mostly known Mechatronics professionals are the technicians and engineers who design and maintain autonomous equipment. These technicians and engineers typically conduct their work in offices, laboratories, or on-site at a manufacturing plant. Both of these professionals work toward the same goal of producing safe and efficient autonomous equipment. Technicians primarily maintain the machinery, while the engineers are more focused on the design and development of components and products.

Today, autofocus has just about eliminated blurry pictures. Common active autofocus systems have a detector and an emitter that use either the technology of radar, sonar and/or triangulation used in range finders. Passive autofocus systems use the light from the image to focus the camera. Any autofocusing system in a camera must have a motor to move the lens elements to focus the camera.

Even on a tripod, a small movement or a small vibration is enough to ruin a photo. A vibration reduction system must counteract vertical and horizontal vibration, and every direction in between, and it needs to perform the correction within a few milliseconds! Any system that means to reduce any blur caused by camera movement needs to do something to put the light beams back to the correct path before the photo is taken.

How does a camera detect movement and how does it get the light beams back on the right path after a sudden movement? When the system is active and something shifts the camera, the movement is detected by two gyro-sensors; one is used to detect horizontal movement and the other sensor, mounted perpendicular from the first, detects vertical movement. A microchip in the camera calculates the distance and direction the lens has moved.

The United States Department of Labor has mechatronics referenced as a new and emerging growth area and has also been identified as an in-demand industry cluster. The Bureau of Labor Statistics does not collect specifically employment data or wage data on mechatronics technicians; however industrial sources suggest that the averaged annual wage is around $50,000, and the job outlook is bright through 2018. The National Council on Competitiveness estimates that in the 21st century, 100 million new jobs will be created at the intersection of disciplines rather than individual disciplines.

Mechatronics Engineer Job Description

Mechatronics Engineer Job Description
Mechatronics is a relatively new branch of engineering that combines the principles of mechanical engineering, systems design engineering, electronic engineering, control engineering, and computer and software engineering. Mechatronics engineering encompasses the inner workings of almost all things electronic, ranging from cell phones to computer processors to robots and artificial intelligence systems. Mechatronics engineers apply their knowledge in mechanics, electronics, computers and control theory within manufacturing and product design fields with the goal of improving functionality of systems used across a variety of sectors.
Mechatronics engineering jobs are mainly focused on creating simpler, more cost-effective and dependable systems. The use of industrial robots is a good example of a mechatronics system at work , as it combines mechanics, electronics and computer science. Mechatronics engineers are typically responsible for designing hybrid systems that can range from spin assist, anti-lock braking systems and other automotive subsystems to hard disks, autofocus cameras, CD players,

A system that is composed of electrical and mechanical parts that are overlaid with sensors that record information, with microprocessors that interpret, process and analyze this information, and finally assemblies that react based on the information, constitutes a mechatronic system. Examples include, some of the smart products that are used as ordinary consumer goods in our daily lives, such as cameras, Compact Discs, photocopiers or washing machines, all of which have sensors incorporated, microprocessor-based controllers and actuators that make them more versatile and easy to use. Autonomous machines in the used in the fields of: medicine, agriculture, banking, mining and manufacturing, that can sense, perceive, reason, decide and act are also considered mechatronic systems.
