Essential sequence for undergrad mechatronics

Quanser offers the only complete Mechatronics lab sequence that covers everything from fundamentals to fully integrated systems.


Traditionally, developing a fully functional mechatronic system requires expertise in actuation, sensing, control and vision, along with time developing hardware and software. This development process, although rigorous, can interfere with understanding fundamentals, and takes away precious time that can be otherwise dedicated to innovation. With Quanser’s mechatronic lab equipment, instructors can focus on teaching fundamentals of the mechatronic subsystems and advanced applications with fully developed robust hardware powered by rigorous software.

Built exclusively for the NI ELVIS platform, the QNET Mechatronics series includes:

  • Sensors: survey of common mechatronic sensors used in industry
  • Actuators: design considerations, common specifications, interfacing and operation techniques for a variety of actuators
  • Interfacing: fundamentals of I/O and inter-device communication including SPI, I²C and CAN bus
  • Systems: a complete mechatronic system designed to explore, develop and integrate component subsystems
