Mechatronics

Titel03

The terrific pace of development in microelectronics is producing greater functionality, safety and convenience in virtually all areas of everyday life. A striking case in point is the automotive industry, where the last few years have seen a continuous stream of newly developed components and functions being integrated into vehicles. Airbags, antilock braking systems and electronic chassis stabilisation are just a few examples.

A vital role in the development of these systems is played by mechatronics, or in other words the integration of electronics and mechanical components. The driving force is provided by the desire for lower fuel consumption and consequently more efficient use of the world’s oil resources. The connector is of special importance in all mechatronic components, since it now fulfils the dual role of connecting element and housing for electronic and sensor systems.
