The Technical Committee on Mechatronics serves as a community for ASME members interested in the broad area of mechatronic systems, with a focus on integration of sensing, actuation, and control across a wide range of applications.   The Technical Committee works closely with two journal, the IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics and the International Journal of Intelligent Robotics and Applications; and three conferences, the American Control Conference, ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Conference, and IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligence and Mechatronics.   In addition, the technical committee selects Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards from among mechatronics-themed papers at these venues.


Current TC officers are:


Garrett Clayton, (Villanova University), (610) 519-4798
