Hi rusty
That seems a good plan. Depending on your specialization background, you could either look in detail at the rf side of the problem, or look more closely at the man/machine interface area.
The first one has many solutions already commercially available, so there is no point in re-inventing the wheel. There are many low-cost products that employ frequency hopping 2.45GHz technology, and this is well established. Emerging techniques using the 60GHz band are entering commercial availability but they are currently rather expensive and more suitable for high speed LANs.
I have not encountered the term mechatronics before, but it sounds like the man/machine interface would be more your line.
