COMPUTER-AIDED CROSS-DOMAIN MODELING OF MECHATRONIC SYSTEMS
Mechatronics – the symbiotic cooperation of mechanics, electrics/electronics, control engineering and software engineering – opens up fascinating perspectives for the development of future products. Still, development of mechatronic systems remains a challenge. Software support is a prerequisite to cope with this challenge. This contribution presents a software tool, which provides means for managing the complexity and intuitive modeling of the principle solution of advanced mechatronic systems. Its advantages are demonstrated in a case study from the development of a miniature robot.
