The ROBOMECH Journal aims at the advanced technologies and practical applications in the field of Robotics and Mechatronics. This field is growing in terms of the daily commodity to advanced space robotics and systems.
Many readers may realize how difficult it is to define Robotics and Mechatronics clearly. There are numerous definitions by many people. However, none of them can be said to be the best in describing advanced robotics mechatronics, since Mechatronics is continually evolving. In this Journal we tentatively define Mechatronics as “the synergetic integration of mechanical engineering and informatics with electronic and intelligent computer control in the design and manufacturing of products and processes”. The scope of ROBOMECH Journal encompasses all practical aspects of the theory and methods of Robotics and Mechatronics. Twelve technical areas included are the following but not limited to:
1) Modeling and Design
2) System Integration
3) Actuators and Sensors
4) Intelligent Control
7) Motion Control
8) Vibration and Noise Control
9) Micro/Nano Devices and Optoelectronics Systems
10) Automotive Systems
11) Applications for Extreme and/or Hazardous Environments
12) Other Applications
As systems become larger and more complicated, we certainly need insight to see the important role of Robotics and Mechatronics by system analysis and integration. It is a practice-based technology unlike any other technology. There are a lot of products in the market which require the modern technology of Mechatronics for a higher performance and human friendly interface.
