Abstract

This paper is devoted to the analysis of the broad technological field of mechatronics, robotics and components for automation and control systems. Several sub-fields are considered: (i) components and instruments, involving sensors, actuators, embedded systems and communications; (ii) mechatronics concepts and technologies; (iii) robotics; (iv) human-machine systems, including technical issues and social implications; and (v) cost-oriented automation which is a multidisciplinary field involving theory, technologies and application as well as economical and social issues. First current key problems in this field are considered then, the accomplishment and trends are analysed. Finally, the forecast is presented to discuss issues relevant for future developments.
