mechatronics

[‚mek·ə′trän·iks]
(engineering)
A branch of engineering that incorporates the ideas of mechanical and electronic engineering into a whole, and, in particular, covers those areas of engineering concerned with the increasing integration of mechanical, electronic, and software engineering into a production process.

mechatronics

(MECHAnics elecTRONICS) The combination of mechanical and electronic systems. Embracing robotics, industrial control systems and human interfaces in numerous disciplines, mechatronics is a major step beyond "electromechanical," in which only electricity is required. Mechatronic systems employ microprocessors and software as well as special-purpose electronics. The subhead of CMP's Mechatropolis website when it was in existence said "where mechanical and electronic engineering connect." See electromechanical.
