Title Mechatronics in Energy Saving Applications
Project Number 2011-1-SI1-LEO05-02735
Project Type Projets de transfert d'innovation
Marketing Text L'implémentation de la méthodologie et l'intégration de la robotique en classe présentent une approche innovante de l'enseignement et de l'apprentissage. Il s’agit d’un projet multidisciplinaire, d'un projet qui permet l'intégration des matières, des savoirs et des apprentissages. En participant au développement et à la fabrication de la voiture électrique le groupe d'élèves de différents programmes a pu acquérir d'importantes connaissances dans plusieurs domaines : ingénierie, mécatronique, mécanique et génie électrique. L'innovation de ce projet n'est pas seulement la fabrication de la voiture électrique, mais aussi l'intégration de contenu dans le système scolaire et dans des programmes ouverts et flexibles.
The term "mechatronics" may be considered a phenomenon that has technological, economic, organizational and social aspects that concern the management and evolution of complex technical and organizational processes that make products and/or services. The cornerstone of the project was sharing knowledge and competences in this area functional to promote an upgrading in disciplinary labour skills that market needs. Principally we followed the holistic approach which instead of considering mechatronics as a technical discipline, considered it as an educational methodology whose benefits were spread through the whole students’ curriculum at all levels.
>The specific objectives of the project were:
• to improve the educational training organization in the field of science and technology;
• to improve the creativity and the professionalism of teachers and students and their scientific-technological culture;
• to study and implement a moving mechanical interface on two axes so as to maximize reception of solar energy in every moment;
• to receive recognition at the European level of knowledge and competences.
The connections of our institutions with the working environment (factories, enterprizes, agencie etc.) provided a suitable support to the project in terms of know-how and the supply of materials.
The envisaged impact: making laboratory experiences engaging and effective - using advanced tools, implementing and demonstrating the knowledge and skills with multidisciplinary projects, using modern software support - pathways to Higher Education and/or labour market on content and strategic themes.
Description The term “mechatronics” may be considered a phenomenon that has technological, economic, organizational and social aspects that concerned the management and evolution of complex technical and organizational processes that make products and/or services. By this definition mechatronics and automation especially in industry are becoming an evolutionary process which economies are forced to pass through in order to expand and evolve. The cornerstone of the project was sharing knowledge and competences to promote and upgrade in disciplinary labour skills that market needs. Principally we intended to follow the holistic approach which instead of considering mechatronics as a technical discipline considered it as an educational methodology whose benefits were spread through the whole students’ curriculum at all levels.
Activités Spécialisées, Scientifiques Et Techniques
Product information Throughout the project duration several products has been made. Handbook, Mesa training base for teachers and trainers and good practices manual has been made and has offered help to teachers to implement courses for making electric car. One of the product was also evaluation questionnaire for teachers and students to get a feedback of implementation phase. At the end of the project electric car has been introduced made by teachers, pupils, experts and enterprises.
