Mechatronics Project Ideas

Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, telecommunications engineering, computer engineering, systems engineering and control engineering. As technology is progressing, the subbranches of engineering multiply and adapt. The objective of mechatronics is a design process that unifies these subbranches. Actually, mechatronics just included the combination of mechanics and electronics. So the word is a combination of mechanics and electronics; however, as technical systems have become more and more complex the definition has been broadened to include more technical areas.

Many people treat “mechatronics” as a modern buzzword synonymous with robotics and “electromechanical engineering”.

Course Structure

Mechatronics students take courses in various fields:

Mechanical engineering and materials science and engineering; Electronics engineering; Electrical engineering; Telecommunications; Computer engineering (software & hardware engineering); Computer science; Systems engineering; Control engineering; Optical engineering.


Machine vision; Servo-mechanics; Automation and robotics; Sensing and control systems; Automotive engineering, automotive equipment in the design of subsystems such as anti-lock braking systems; Computer-machine controls, such as computer driven machines like CNC milling machines, CNC waterjets, and CNC plasma cutters; Expert systems; Industrial goods; Consumer products; Mechatronics systems; Medical mechatronics, medical imaging systems; Structural dynamic systems; Transportation and vehicular systems; Mechatronics as the new language of the automobile; Computer aided and integrated manufacturing systems; Computer-aided design; Engineering and manufacturing systems; Packaging; Microcontrollers / PLCs.

Some related branches of mechatronics

Biomechatronics is an emerging branch of the mechatronics. The purpose of biomechatronics is to integrate mechanical parts with a human being.This is usually done in the form of removable gadgets such as an exoskeleton. Biomechatronics is the “real-life” version of cyberware.

Furthermore there is an another form of the branch is Motion control for Advanced Mechatronics, which presently is recognized as a key technology in mechatronics. The strength of motion control will be represented as a function of stiffness and a basis for practical realization. The control stiffness which could be variable according to the task reference sets the parameters of the motion sensing. The strength of the motion sensor is defined by the stiffness of the motion controller.

Avionics is also a form of mechatronics as it combines several fields such as electronics and telecommunication with Aerospace Engineering.

The Internet of things (IoT) is the inter-networking of physical devices, embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity which enable these objects to collect and exchange data. IoT and mechatronics are complementary.

Mechatronics Project Ideas

  • Pneumatic Powered Metal Pick and Place Arm


Mechatronics Project Ideas

The aim of the project is to Design and fabricate pneumatic arm for pick and place of cylindrical objects. The handling of materials and mechanisms to pick and place of objects from lower plane to higher plane and are widely found in factories and industry manufacturing.

  • Electromagnetic Braking System

Mechatronics Project Ideas

Electromagnetic braking is applying brakes using electronic and magnetic power. This uses the principle of electromagnetism to achieve friction less braking. This  increases the life span and reliability of brakes as there is no friction leads to less wearing out of brakes. Also it requires less maintenance and oiling. This is an upcoming technological replacement for traditional braking systems.

  • Design & Fabrication of Attachable Wheelchair Automator

Mechatronics Project Ideas

The wheelchairs are generally driven by manual efforts. The disabled drive wheelchairs by their hands while another person is required to push  wheelchair of disabled . A simple attachable extension attaches to a wheelchair and can transform wheelchairs into E wheelchairs that need no manual efforts.

  • Agricultural Robot

Mechatronics Project Ideas

An agricultural robot is a robot used for agricultural purposes. The main area of application of robots in agriculture today is at the harvesting time. New applications of robots or drones in agriculture include planting seeds, harvesting, weed control, cloud seeding, environmental monitoring and soil analysis etc.

  • Hand Motion Controlled Robotic Arm

Mechatronics Project Ideas

This system allows controlling a robotic arm by hand movements. This system uses RF receiver having interface with the 8051 microcontroller which controls the driver IC which is further responsible for control of the arm movement.
