Multi-pin connector with insertion detection

Calling local EEs: I'm looking for a small multi-pin (4 pin minimum) electronic connector with an integrated insertion detection switch. The switch should be isolated from the 4 active pins (unlike, for example, most audio connectors).

Getting outside DC wiring onto a constantly rotating surface

For a research project, I have several pieces of equipment mounted on top of a large metal rotating circular surface. At the moment, all equipment is battery powered. I would like to come up with an inexpensive way of getting DC power and signal wires to a computer off the surface to analyze data in real time. Besides that constraint, going down thru the center isn't really an option since the rotating shaft is solid metal. [more inside]

Electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, control systems engineers: how do you work together, really?

I’m tasked with writing an article about a new "mechatronics" device. I have an engineering degree and understand the device and its benefits. I’m having trouble with the “mechatronics” part since I have not actually worked as a development engineer. I’m hoping that some practicing engineers can shed some light on how EEs, MEs and control systems engineers work together. [more inside]
