Mechatronics and robotics technologies
General desciption of Mechatronics and robotics technologies:
Mechatronics, which is also called mechatronic engineering, is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering that focuses on the engineering of both electrical and mechanical systems, and also includes a combination of robotics, electronics, computer, telecommunications, systems, control, and product engineering. (From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mechatronics).
A robot is a machine—especially one programmable by a computer—capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically (From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robot). Robotics systems can be considered as a subset of mechatronic systems.
