Sercos International, provider of the Sercos® automation bus, presented Sercos slave prototyping with EasySlave kit for Arduino. Arduino is a physical computing platform that is enjoying strongly growing popularity in research and teaching and also in the implementation of IoT concepts. The special thing about Arduino is that the boards are inexpensive and both hardware […]
Maybe my insight is not new. But I thought it was interesting nonetheless. I have been working on a project in the solar energy arena. My company is developing a two axis tracking system that will improve the energy harvest of flat roof and residential solar installations. Its going really well. A real mechatronic challenge. The magic is in […]
By Keith Perrin AUTODESK Today’s manufacturers are using a mechatronics-based approach to integrate the electronic, mechanical, and software components of their increasingly complex products. Digital prototyping allows disparate engineering teams to work from a single digital model, saving time and reducing errors throughout the design process. The Autodesk solution for digital prototyping enables manufacturers to […]
