Mechatronics is centred on [[mechanics]], [[electronics]] and [[computing]] which, combined, make possible the generation of simpler, more economical, reliable and versatile systems. The portmanteau "mechatronics" was first coined by Mr. Tetsuro Mori, a senior engineer of a Japanese company, [[Yaskawa]], in [[1969]]. Mechatronics may alternatively be referred to as "[[electromechanical]]-[[systems]]".

[[Engineering cybernetics]] deals with the question of control [[engineering]] of mechatronic systems. It is used to control or regulate such a system; see [[control theory]]. A [[component-based paradigm]] is a form of distributed control production system which utilises a [[Controller Area Network|CAN]] or [[local area network|LAN]] to link autonomous mechatronic modules. Through collaboration the mechatronic modules perform the production goals and inherit flexible and agile manufacturing properties in the production scheme. Modern production equipment consists of [[mechatronic]] modules that are integrated according to a [[control architecture]]. The most known architectures involve [[hierarchy]], [[polyarchy]], [[hetaerarchy]] and [[hybrid]]. The [[methods]] for achieving a [[technical effect]] are described by [[control algorithm]]s, which may or may not utilize [[formal method]]s in their design. Hybrid-systems important to Mechatronics include [[production systems]], [[synergy-drives]], [[planetary-rovers]], automotive subsystems such as [[anti-lock braking system]]s, [[spin-assist]] and every day equipment such as autofocus cameras, video, [[hard disk]]s, cd-players, washing machines, lego-matics etc.
