    To interact with an object, a mechatronic system must know where the object is, be able to move the object and place it in the required new position. The electronics require information from sensors that can detect position, orientation, and visual or audio signals. The electrical inputs from the sensors have to be interpreted and the appropriate signals sent out to the actuators to perform the required operation. A good understanding of feedback control is also required to be able to make changes in the system from one steady position to another without oscillations or unpredictable movements.

          • Testimony
            1976-1979, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

            I was lucky to spend 3 years in halls (St. Anslem) and I experienced a warm, supportive community that has enabled me to maintain friendships for nearly 35 years. The City and the University impressed me then and still do now, when I get the chance to return for a visit.

          • Testimony
            1982-1985, BSc

            The University provided an exciting and lively opportunity to not only use the very well established laboratories and libraries but also to work closely in and out of term with local industry and other faculties. I myself also collaborated with Davis Derby in electrical and electronic engineering, computers especially in hazardous atmospheres which eventually lead to my fascination with corrosion and its prevention. I am very proud to be associated with Manchester and its now combined Universities as a former UMIST graduate and especially the high calibre of work that is produced and the support they gave me during my time there..
