Kinematic scheme design is the beginning of the mechatronic system design, which is the most
important and difficult for junior students in mechanical engineering education. In this paper, the state
space method with the idea of basic mechanism unit is introduced in kinematic scheme design of
Theory of Machines and Mechanisms Course, which is expressed by state vectors, characteristics
matrix and equations. Based on the basic mechanism unit, a database of the mechanism unit is set up,
and computer aided teaching software of kinematic scheme design is developed for the teaching of
Dalian University of Technology in China. By means of the software, the whole solutions of a
mechanical system with a required input/output motion are generated though the combination of the
basic mechanism unit. An example shows that the software is very helpful for the kinematic scheme
design teaching and kinematic scheme design project practicing. It makes the kinematic scheme design
teaching easy.

Keywords: Kinematic design teaching, basic mechanism unit, computer aided software.
