Mechatronics is an essential element of modern engineering systems and it requires multidisciplinary expertise across a range of disciplines, such as mechanical engineering, electronics, information technology, and control systems science. Mechatronics is the application of electronics and computer technology to control the motions of mechanical systems. It concurrently include all the disciplines of mechanical, electrical, control and computer engineering to develop products, processes and systems with high flexibility, easy to redesign and ability of reprogramming. Actuators and sensors, vibration and noise control, robotics and machine vision, smart structures, motion control micro electro mechanical systems, automotive systems, system identification, control of mechatronics systems play the major role into mechatronics. The replacement or the enhancement of traditional mechanical systems with electronics can lead the automobiles more efficient and less pollutant. In current technology microelectronics and sensor technology, mechatronics systems are providing high levels of precision and reliability.

Mobile robots have the capability to move around in their environment and are not fixed to one physical location. Mobile robots can be "autonomous" (AMR - autonomous mobile robot) which means they are capable of navigating an uncontrolled environment without the need for physical or electro-mechanical guidance devices.
In medicine, bionics means the replacement or enhancement of organs or other body parts by mechanical versions. Bionic implants differ from mere prostheses by mimicking the original function very closely, or even surpassing it

It is the technology and methods used to provide imaging-based automatic inspection and analysis for such applications as automatic inspection, process control, and robot guidance in industry. The main uses for machine vision are automatic inspection and industrial robot guidance. This includes user interfaces, interfaces for the integration of multi-component systems and automated data interchange. Two important specifications in any vision system are the sensitivity and the resolution. Sensitivity is the ability of a machine to see in weak light, or to discern very light impulses at invisible wavelengths. Resolution is the extent to which a machine can differentiate between objects and the quality of being determined.

Industrial automation includes the functionalities of control systems, such as robots or computers and information technologies for handling different processes and machineries in an industry to replace manpower. Industrial automation is the second step beyond mechanization in the scope of industrialization. These technologies help many manufacturing companies to rescue large quantity of automation system resources and also make the works are completed in very short moment while comparing to normal manual works. The automation technologies help to increase the productivity of handling systems while reducing the engineering effort up to 85%. While comparing to 2008, as of now 2016 the Automation devices market has been increased from $ 5000 to $ 30000 which means hardly around 30% has been increased while comparing to 2008.

It is the art and science of measurement and control of process variables within a production, laboratory, or manufacturing area.An instrument is a device that measures a physical quantity such as flow, temperature, level, distance, angle, or pressure. Instruments may be as simple as direct reading thermometers or may be complex multi-variable process analyzers. Instruments are often part of a control system in refineries, factories, and vehicles.
Automation or automatic control, is the use of various control systems for operating equipment such as machinery, processes in factories, boilers and heat treating ovens, switching on telephone networks, steering and stabilization of ships, aircraft and other applications and vehicles with minimal or reduced human intervention. Some processes have been completely automated.
Automation has been achieved by various means including mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical, electronic devices and computers, usually in combination

Materials Science involves a study of the relationships between a synthesis, processing, structure, properties, and performance of materials that enable an engineering function. These properties of interest can be mechanical, electrical, magnetic or optical. Engineering function can impact industries involved in electronics, communications, medicine, transportation, manufacturing, recreation, energy, and the environment. While a field has evolved from materials, metals, ceramics, polymers and their various composites. In the recent years there has been increasing focus on creating novel metastable nanostructured materials.
