About ICMRM 2011:
As on today, for mechatronic systems, the main issue is no more how to implement a control system, but how to implement actuators and what is the energy source. The most advanced mechatronics systems are the well known camera autofocus system or camera anti-shake systems. With regards to energy sources of mechatronics systems, most of the applications presently use batteries. But there is a paradigm shift in this approach and now the concept is the energy harvesting, allowing transforming into electricity mechanical energy from shock, vibration, or thermal energy from thermal variation, and so on.
Secondly, robotics has became a popular tool in raising interests primerily among mechanical and computer science engineers. In practice, it is usually an electro-mechanical machine which is guided by computer or electronic programming, and is thus able to do tasks on its own. Another common characteristic is that by its appearance or movements, a robot often conveys a sense that it has intent or agency of its own.This conference also addresses various issues of robotic systems.
Manufacturing system refer to a range of human activity, from handicraft to high tech, but is most commonly applied to industrial production, in which raw materials are transformed into finished goods on a large scale. Such finished products may be used for manufacturing other, more complex products, such as aircraft, household appliances or automobiles. Modern manufacturing includes all intermediate processes required for the production and integration of a product's components.
The conference shall address to the broad areas of Mechatronics, Robotics, and Manufacturing. This will cover industrial applications, such as mechanical product manufacturing; applications in the automotive, aircraft, aerospace, machine tools, mould and die industries; consumer electronics product manufacturing; computers, semiconductor and communication industries and regulated product manufacturing; and biomedical, food, pharmaceutical and packaging industries.
The objective of ICMRM-2011 is to establish a channel of communication to disseminate knowledge between academics/researchers and industry practitioners about the advances in mechatronics, robotics, sensors and controls applications in modern manufacturing processes and systems.
