Abstract

"Geomechatronics" is a technical field in which "Geotechniques" is fused with "Mechatronics" that is the technical field to promote the automatic control of machines by using the electronics. In the field of "Geomechatronics", a construction machine, which treats geotechnical materials such as soil and rock, automatically evaluates the properties and conditions of the ground and determines the optimum controlling method of itself for the ground with the base of the machine-ground interaction. Some researches for practical use in the field of geomechatronics are introduced, and then the progressing view of this research and technical filed is explained in this paper.
