Mechatronics research device

Mechatronics represents modern machine technology as a multidisciplinary field of science, including mechanical engineering with electronics and computer control in the design and manufacture of industrial products. The aim in mechatronics design is to enhance the performance of machines, improve their price-performance ratio and increase functionality. Main research interests in mechatronics include vehicle dynamics in Arctic conditions, hybridisation of mobile machines, industrial internet-connected machines, rotating machinery, tribology and integrated fluid power systems. With respect to integrated fluid power systems, the main research interests are digital hydraulics, magnetorheological actuators, vibration control technology and wave energy applications.
