The key element in mechatronics system design is the concurrent synergetic integration, modeling, simulation, analysis and optimization of multidisciplinary knowledge through the design process from the very start of the design process, and toward constrains like higher performance, speed, precision, efficiency, lower costs and functionality, resulting in products with more synergy. This paper proposes the conception and development of smart solar tracking system, based on mechatronics design approach, such that the solar panel through both day and seasonal changes is accurately perpendicular to sunlight beam (accurately point towards sun), where illumination is strongest. The whole system and sub-systems are concurrently selected, designed, integrated modeled, tested and optimized; also, overall system response is verified for different input types, including actual input altitude angles. The obtained results show the simplicity, accuracy and applicability of design to meet all design requirements. The proposed design can be used either for research or educational purposes.

Key words: Mechatronics design, solar tracker, modeling/simulation.
