Date: November 16 ~ November 18, 2022, EST

The M2VIP 2022 conference will be a virtual experience due to the continuing impact and future unpredictability of the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision was not easily made, but the safety and well-being of our participants are our utmost priorities. Our goal remains to provide a conference of the highest quality. And we aim to take full advantage of the virtual platform to enhance inclusivity that allows the exchange of our community’s latest research and ideas.

Call for Papers

Mechatronic design can result in products that are much simpler than their intricate and costly predecessors and can make commonplace the miracle of yesterday. Machine vision has emerged from the laboratory among other sophisticated sensors to find real applications in multimedia, and with ease of interfacing, it offers a whole new field of low-cost vision-based mechatronic designing.

In recent years, with new mechatronic concepts continuously introduced, such as wearable and soft mechatronics devices, there is a great demand of mechatronics education. Mechatronics research will become more and more active. Papers related to applied, practical, and case studies are highly welcome.

Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.
