mechatronics An engineering discipline that attempts to integrate technologies from mechanical engineering, electronics, and computer software and hardware in order to design and create flexible “smart” machines. Mechatronics is closely related to robotics, but covers relatively less complex systems such as intelligent door locks, cameras, photocopiers, and washing machines.
