1. Automotive Mechatronics Hans-Peter Schöner Elsevier: Control Engineering Practice 12 (2004) 1343–1351 Karla Carballo Valderrábano Diseño de Sistemas Mecatrónicos Otoño 2016 AUTOMOTIVE MECHATRONICS 1

2. Mechatronics Synergetic use of several engineering disciplines Modern way to design ‘‘helpful machinery’’ The tasks of the machinery should be realized in the most efficient way, be it mechanically, electronically, or by software. The functions required can be implemented into the available space at a reasonable price. Otoño 2016 AUTOMOTIVE MECHATRONICS 2

3. Automated system Suitable control Complex information processing algorithms System properties Non-linear State-dependant Timevarying. Adaptive and learning systems MECHATRONICS MEANS MORE!!! Otoño 2016 AUTOMOTIVE MECHATRONICS 3

4. Mechatronics Integration: The most suitable technology for every function. Sensotronic, electronics and mechanics. Smaller size Lesser hardware Cheaper production cost Increased requirements on environmental conditions Complexity More actuators and sensors. Information processing (pattern recognition algorithms) High speed, deterministic, hierarchical communication systems (BUS Systems) Otoño 2016 AUTOMOTIVE MECHATRONICS 4

5. Mechatronic systems in vehicles Anti-blocking system (ABS) and electronic stability program (ESP) Reduce driving accidents Active body control (ABC) system Controls the body vibrations caused by road roughness. Manual transmissions are being automated with complex actuator and sensor systems Give similar shifting comfort with a higher efficiency Headlamps are turned on and off according to light conditions Adaptive airbag deployment Otoño 2016 AUTOMOTIVE MECHATRONICS 5

6. Limitations for future development Reduction of Fuel consumption ◦ Improving combustion engines ◦ Hybrid vehicles Regulations for exhaust emissions ◦ Working and environmental conditions ◦ Complex and flexible algorithms Accident-free driving ◦ Assistant systems ◦ Automatic driving Limitations and enabling factors for future development ◦ Trade-off between cost and performance Otoño 2016 AUTOMOTIVE MECHATRONICS 6
