Function Basis for Mechatronic System Design
A new function-oriented theoretical basis for mechatronic system design is presented in the paper, with a technology-independent functional description of such aspects in a mechatronic system as 1) relations and distinctions among purpose function, transformation function and state transition and 2) structure of information processing. All discussions are summarized in a set of principles, which consequently form the basis for devising design models and methods for mechatronic systems.
