EB II 1032, the '''Mechatronics Lab''', is primarily used by ECE 456, Mechatronics, classes. This lab is full of equipment to help any mechatronics student. Eight of the workstations contain a computer, a flat panel monitor, oscilloscope, function generator, digital multimeter, and a power supply, with enough room for two partners to work together at. Two other workstations contain a computer for a group of two. There are 2 large tables in the center of the room for students to expand their workstation or work together in larger groups.

The lab also contains additional open workspace and storage for smaller components in the center of the room, and the remaining open space is suitable for project and vehicle testing.  Finally, the Mechatronics Lab contains a dedicated computer for instructors, as well as a projector for use in teaching and presentations.
  
Mechatronics is the study of electro-mechanical systems controlled by microcomputer technology. ECE 456 emphasizes the theory, design, and implementation of smart systems and the creation of closely coupled and integrated products and systems. Students will also be expected to synergistically integrate things like mechanics, information technology, microcontrollers and other components. These classes will also become familiar with Interactive C, software unique to the Mechatronics Lab.

Mechatronics is the synergistic combination of mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, controls engineering and computer engineering to develop systems and products that are efficient, versatile, and reliable. Courses within this interdisciplinary engineering field study the theory, design, and implementation of smart systems, as well as the components and mechanisms that make up these systems. Students learn to identify, understand, and work with devices such as sensors, actuators, network-based controllers, cameras, and microcontrollers, as well as Sun Microsystems [http://www.sunspotworld.com/ Sun SPOT devices].  More advanced courses involve long-term projects that utilize unmanned vehicles to illustrate concepts of systems integration and control.
