Session and Tracks
Track 1: Mechatronics
The power generation and pharmaceutical industries are also heavily dependent on mechatronic devices to provide skilled operations in environments. The education of a mechatronics engineer or researcher thus must place a greater emphasis on the ability to work across and between individual areas of technology. Mechatronics can therefore be considered as being a systems approach to the design, development and implementation of complex engineering systems which takes as its foundation the transfer of functionality from the physical domain to the information domain. The strength of the approach is that it supports the understanding of the nature of the embedded complexity by ensuring that the different engineering and other disciplines are considered together from the start of the design process. The introduction of a mechatronic approach to technology integration allied to a concurrent engineering development strategy has resulted in products which are inherently more capable, and hence more attractive to users than their predecessors at reducing real costs. Systems that move, machine and assemble hard substances are only classifiable as ‘mechatronic’ to the degree that they contain elements of reasoning and agility. As manufacturing systems have evolved across the world despite the plentiful labour supply, the inclusion of virtually unattended automation components is growing. Areas of mechatronic involvement in manufacturing include assembly, machining, inspection, dangerous material handling and disassembly.
Track 2: Intelligent Systems
As fuzzy set theory, the probability theory deals with the uncertainty, but usually the type of uncertainty is different. Stochastic uncertainty deals with the uncertainty toward the occurrence of certain event and this uncertainty is quantified by a degree of probability. Probability statements can be combined with other statements using stochastic methods. Most known is the Bayesian calculus of conditional probability. Probabilistic reasoning includes genetic algorithms, belief networks, chaotic systems and parts of learning theory.
Track 3: Intelligent Control Systems and Optimization
Fuzzy logic copies the feature of human decision making using levels of possibility in many uncertain (or fuzzy) categories. The first step in fuzzy logic converts the measured signal into a set of fuzzy variables. This is called fuzzification. A fuzzy set is represented by a membership function defined on the universe of discourse. The universe of discourse is the space where the fuzzy variables are defined. The term “fuzzy” refers to the ability of dealing with imprecise or vague inputs.
Track 4: Robots
After various recent achievements in medical robotic research, people have begun to recognise the distinctive advantages of using robots for medical purposes. The main reasons that have drawn much attention to robotic systems results from their capability in carrying out a variety of surgical and other medical tasks with high accuracy and repeatability, and their ability to provide surgeons with enhanced visual feedback. Owing to their capabilities and benefits in clinical areas, the research and deployment of robots for medical applications has increased considerably over the last decade. To date, there have been many robots used in complex medical interventions including neurosurgery, cardiac surgery, orthopaedic surgery, urological surgery, bariatric surgery, prosthetic implantation, and rehabilitation. Today, medical robotic technology has dramatically improved, resulting in an increase of medical robots on the market along with their applications in real clinical scenarios. In the future, it is expected that robots will play very important roles in modern medical diagnosis, surgery, rehabilitation, in vivo inspection and drug delivery.
Track 5: Safety standards for robots and systems
Safeguards should be designed into and around the robotic cell early in the design process to maximize the inherent safety of the overall system. System designers must understand current safeguarding technology. It is also worth appreciating how this technology can save time and money both now and in the future. Hard-guarding is a fencing-type solution. With hard-guards, door access is likely to be needed, and these doors must contain interlocking devices (e.g., safety interlocks) to guarantee safe access. Optical perimeter guards (e.g., light curtains) are a more flexible safety measure that can easily adapt to layout changes. These guards must be located at a safe distance from the hazard and must interface with the robotic control system.
Track 6: Human Robot Interaction
Human-robot interaction has been an emerging research topic in recent year because robots are playing important roles today, from factory automation to service applications to medical care and entertainment. The goal of human-robot interaction (HRI) research is to define a general human model that could lead to principles and algorithms allowing more natural and effective interaction between humans and robots. Ueno proposed a concept of Symbiotic Information Systems (SIS) as well as a symbiotic robotics system as one application of SIS, where humans and robots can communicate with each other in human friendly ways using speech and gesture. A Symbiotic Information System is an information system that includes human beings as an element, blends into human daily life, and is designed on the concept of symbiosis.
Track 7: Automation
A building automation system is a system that controls and monitors building services. These systems can be built up in several different ways. In this chapter a general building automation system for a building with complex requirements due to the activity, such as a hospital, will be described. Real systems usually have several of the features and components described here but not all of them. The Automation level includes all the advanced controllers that controls and regulates the Field level devices in real time.
Track 8: Automation tools
In a distributed control system (DCS), process measurements and control functions such as multiple PID loops are connected to application processors, which are networked throughout the plant. A graphical user interface (GUI) makes it easier for operators to view data, create plots, change setpoints, and respond to alarms. In addition to process control, modern DCS software includes sophisticated trending and data storage.
Track 9: Role of Automation in Robotics
During motion generation, motion data in the database is transmitted to the motor controller. Motion data is transmitted sequentially at a specific rate using the internal clock of the robot. Speech recordings are synchronized in parallel with the motion at specified timings. Visual, auditory and tactile modalities have received more attention than olfactory and gustatory modalities. It may not be necessary for a robot to eat something, but the information contained in taste and odour becomes important when developing higher levels of cognitive processes.
Track 10: Applications of Automation
Managing the increasing traffic is a big problem all over the world. Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) provides solution to these problems with the help of new technologies. ITS is an integrated system that implements a broad range of communication, control, vehicle sensing and electronics technologies to solve and manage the traffic problems. ITS deliver five key classes of benefits by: 1) increasing safety, 2) improving operational performance, particularly by reducing congestion, 3) enhancing mobility and convenience, 4) delivering environmental benefits, and 5) boosting productivity and expanding economic and employment growth. ITS maximize the capacity of infrastructure, reducing the need to build additional highway capacity. By improving the operational performance of the transportation network, ITS enhance driver mobility and convenience, deliver environmental benefits, and even boost productivity and economic growth.
Track 11: Control Systems
In mathematical control theory, the mathematical model describing the physical system that we want to behave according to the specifications is called the control system. An important paradigm in control systems design, and in mathematical control theory, is feedback. The idea of feedback is to let the action of the physical controlling device at any moment in time depend on the actual behaviour of the physical system that is being controlled.
Chaotic system is a deterministic dynamical system exhibiting irregular, seemingly random behaviour. Two trajectories of a chaotic system starting close to each other will diverge after some time. Mathematically chaotic systems are characterized by local instability and global boundedness of the trajectories.
Track 12: Control Theory and Optimization Technique
The subject of optimization is quite general in the sense that it can be viewed in different ways depending on the approach (algebraic or geometric), the interest (single or multiple), the nature of the signals (deterministic or stochastic), and the stage (single or multiple) used in optimization. While designing systems and products requires a deep understanding of influences that achieve desirable performance, the need for an efficient and systematic decision-making approach drives the need for optimization strategies. Optimization is a key enabling tool for decision making. Optimization algorithms form the core tools for (a) experimental design, parameter estimation, model development, and statistical analysis; (b) process synthesis, analysis, design, and retrofit; (c) model predictive control and real-time optimization; and (d) planning, scheduling, and the integration of process operations into the supply chain for manufacturing and distribution. Optimization problems can be classified in terms of continuous and discrete variables. When represented in algebraic form, the formulation of discrete/continuous optimization problems can be written as mixed integer optimization problems.
Track 13: Control Methods
Integral Control is used almost universally in the control industry to design robust servomechanisms. Various model predictive control methods have been proposed for controlling power electronics and drives. Process control can reduce variability in the end product, which ensures a consistently high-quality product. Manufacturers can also save money by reducing variability. Reducing variability can also save money by reducing the need for Activities product padding to meet required product specifications. Padding refers to the process of making a product of higher-quality than it needs to be to meet specifications. Advanced process control (APC) applications involve the use of control algorithms to provide improved process control when compared to regulatory PID controllers in loops or cascades.

The influence of global trends like electric mobility and the rising demand for consumer goods in emerging nations has made a lasting impact on technological developments by changing requirements for machines and systems, thereby necessitating new design and manufacturing approaches. One promising approach to which engineers and their automation partners are increasingly turning is mechatronics, which has been aptly described as a synergistic collaboration between mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and information technology in the design and production of industrial products and the design of processes. Mechatronics can help ensure design and project success on a number of levels including improved product performance, space savings and cost savings. Mechatronic robotics and handling systems are critical components for factory automation, enabling motion sequences that would otherwise require extensive manual labour, such as automatic equipment assembly, loading and unloading, picking and palletizing. In modern automotive factories, up to 95% of body-in-white processes where a car takes shape are automated, saving labour and materials costs. In a typical welding application, for example, a robot might place 30 welding spots every 60 seconds, achieving short cycle times and an extremely high level of repeat accuracy. The global Agricultural Robots and Mechatronics market has been estimated to reach USD 5.54 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period from 2015-2020.
