Nowadays, the mechanical systems are more and more often replaced by mechatronic systems. These "intelligent" systems combine mechanical, electronic, control theory and embedded information technologies. Initially coming from a rather high technology fields (as aerospace for example), today they take an important place in the product proposed to regular consumer market. The design of mechatronic systems requires a multidisciplinary approach between Mechanics and electrical Engineer professions. The main goal of this course is to understand this approach, the important elements of different implied fields and illustrate it on an active vibration control example.
