Learn about Mechatronics studying the Segway! The summer school of mechatronic systems offers an intensive 5 days course for all interested in mechatronics, particularly systems for active vibration control, including basic hardware and software. Lectures will consist of theoretical fundamentals followed by practical exercises that will demonstrate methods and tools for measuring signals from mechanical and electrical systems and explain how to process them in Matlab. The laboratory experiments will be based on MEMS (Micro Electronic Mechanical Systems) and piezoactuators, while the laboratory measurements will use models such as Segway for vertical stabilization, active vibration control of cantilever beams and journal bearings with the use of the piezoactuators.

The schedule divides each day into key lectures, lab demonstrations, and basic work in the computer lab. Courses are planned from 9:00 to 16:00 with two short breaks and a lunch break.


Data acquisition and processing using Signal Analyser and Matlab (spectral analysis; filters).
Demonstration of MEMS sensors features.
Modelling of mechatronic systems (cantilever beams, rotor system supported by journal bearings).
Active vibration control with the use of piezoactuators (demo test rigs).
Excursions (the Lower Area of Vitkovice, Tatra Technical Museum).
