    Abstract

    The concept of sustainability in the application and operation of engineering systems is of increasing significance in relation to the requirements for the mitigation of climate change along with achieving global targets for the reduction of emissions of all types of greenhouse gasses. As a major contributor to the design and operation of many current systems, mechatronics has a great deal to contribute to achieving many of the climate-oriented goals that have been identified. This has in turn led to the development of the concept of EcoMechatronics in which the approaches to the design and operation of mechatronic systems which have evolved over the years are modified to encompass consideration of the issues of sustainability and environmental impact.
