Conclusion of programme
Scope of the conference series
'Mechatronics' has become accepted for what it is,
the blending of mechanics, electronics
and computer control into an integrated design.
Degree courses in mechatronics are now
It continues to be the basis of an ever growing list of products and techniques of great technical and commercial value. Mechatronic design can result in products which are much simpler than their intricate and costly predecessors and can make commonplace the miracles of yesterday.
Machine-vision has emerged from the laboratory to find real applications in areas which include vehicle guidance, robot control and agriculture. Low-cost cameras have been developed for multimedia applications - but with their ease of interfacing they offer a whole new field of low-cost vision-based control.Like its predecessors, M2VIP 2015 will provide a forum for international experts and researchers to present and review advances in mechatronics and machine vision which have culminated in practical applications, or which promise practical implementation in the very near future.
Presentations are encouraged to include video material of experimental systems.
