An engineering design tool capable of nurturing the development of new mechatronic actuators

Research output: Contribution to conferenceProceeding

Abstract

This paper will cover use of a component selection tool in understanding and forecasting the actuation needs of robotic systems in the future. As part of an ongoing work, a component selection tool to assist mechatronics engineers has been developed. Pursuant to the conference's theme, this paper will focus on how effective the tool is in nurturing innovation of new actuation components and systems. Discussion will take place covering topics such as: development and intended primary and secondary applications of the component selection tool; applying the tool to component selection; how the tool can be used to identify ideal requirements in a design process; how the tool can be used to generate solutions which attempt to encompass what is required of an ideal solution; how the tool is relevant to mechatronics presently; and, how ongoing use could affect a paradigmatic shift in the field of mechatronic systems design and configuration.
