Mechatronics, also known as mechatronic engineering, is a multidisciplinary engineering field that focuses on the design of both electrical and mechanical systems, as well as robotics, electronics, computer systems, control, and product engineering. A Mechatronics Design Lab is a fabrication shop and classroom with equipment for creating microprocessor-controlled electromechanical systems.

At the age of technology, the usage of robotics knowledge in higher education is only to be expected. There are even initiatives launched by certain national education authorities on the issue and they aim to incorporate robotics-based projects into new curricula. These initiatives, however, are far from successful since the robotics knowledge remains peripheral to the chief study plans and continues to be apart of the extra curricular or summer activities.

Robotics labs are significant in educational settings primarily. Because of their impact on improving the exposure that fields like technology and engineering receive in school curricula. Second, robotics labs are significant in that they offer concrete and tangible experiences to students of all ages.

The Delta robot is a tool that will be useful for students and strengthen your robotics and automation labs. It is also the most productive tool for understanding parallel kinematic robotic fundamentals without barriers. As much as it looks aesthetic with delta robot design, it has already started to be used in many sectors since the technology started to develop.

The ball balancing table (BBT in short) plays a very important role in mechatronics and robotics. Also, control theory is a very important concept in many parts of technology. Many models and developments have begun to emerge based on this theory. Just as each model is based on a theory, the ball balancing table is based on control theory. Balancing the ball placed on a table in the desired position is one of the most important examples of control theory.

The ball and beam system is a popular example in control theory. This robot is a very useful tool both for students to understand systems and for studies in engineering fields. The ball-and-beam system consists of a ball that rotates back and forth on a long beam that can be tilted by a servo or electric motor. Let's look a little further, at the ball-and-beam system.

The linear inverted pendulum (or linear pendulum, lin. pen for short) is a classical physics experiment used to explain the control theory and system dynamics. Therefore, it has been used as one of the primary systems used to test and compare control strategies. In an inverted pendulum system, which is an open-loop unstable system, it is desired to stabilize the system by reciprocating motion to stabilize it. It is also used as a common method for testing control algorithms.

The device, called the Stewart Platform, was first designed in 1954 by V. Eric Gough from England. It is classified as a parallel manipulator device that is used for positioning and motion control.

A control lab is a fundamental hands-on experiment lab required for most engineering departments. Whether you are planning to purchase a new control lab equipment or to start a new control / mechatronics lab; there are 2 important topics that you will need to focus on for every purchase.

In April 2021, our partner Altair Inc. hosted a unique student contest on digital-twin concept, where they selected our Ball Balancing Table as the main subject.

At ACROME, we are working towards achieving the goal of more “accessible controls, mechatronics, and robotics education." We are also witnessing the digital transformation of the traditional education systems under the umbrella of distance education.

We talk about and highlight the importance of reporting and assessment in laboratories. We discuss why reporting is important and how it contributes to science and related education in addition to the link between remote labs and reporting. Take a look at our article!

In this article, we discuss the importance and place of repeatable experiments in science in addition to their numerous contributions to every part of our lives.

In this post, we are exploring the importance of an innovation in education. Remote labs have long existed, but they have just captured the public's attention due to the impact the pandemic has on education.

See Acrome's 6-DOF ACROBOT in action using multiple programming languages and Altair's Activate as the digital twin platform.

In this whitepaper, we are exploring Python® language support of ACROME’s educational robotic systems.

In this blog episode we'll be sharing information about Stewart Platforms (aka Hexapods) and their usages in real life and various industries.

Here is a good list that encapsulates what could be done with a decent quality ball balancer system: 6 different control lab experiments.

2018 was such a productive year for robotic developments. Different kind of industries like medical, bio, domestic and toy segments have all made brilliant advances with the help of artificial intelligence.

Control Systems in Nature and Human. Control Systems in Social Life and Information and Control Theory.

Problems in robotics courses: "Lack of hands-on experience", "limited amount of time for education" and "What to do for a better introduction?" Read more to find out what can be done about learning robotics more effectively.

It is well known that the kids question a lot how the things are shaped and interact with each other. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

Getting engineering courses can be seen like learning how to drive; you can study the highway code (or learn the theory) for years, but nothing can prepare you for the real thing, which is getting behind the wheel and hitting the open road.

Stepper motors are the motors that operate with very precise signals. They change the angular position step by step with the pulse signals applied to the motor input. The stepper motors, which convert digital inputs into analog rotational motion, are also known as "digital machines".
