The standard of living and welfare of the people are closely related to the development and improvement of the performance of new engineering materials and devices. These new engineering materials have led to the emergence of new smart engineering devices and systems, such as mechatronic systems with high performance that are used in various industrial fields to reduce the cost of living and extend the quality of our everyday life services in all aspects. In recent years, smart materials have received a wide range of applications due to their unique properties when interacting with external stimuli in controlled conditions and manifest their functions according to the properties. The use of these unique properties of smart materials with the functional methodology of integration and interaction has influenced the emergence of mechatronics as a new technology that combines mechanical, electronics, computer, and information technologies. Mechatronics technology requires that these smart materials with certain properties change or adapt their behavior according to the controlled external condition, including temperature, stress, strain, light, pressure, moisture, pH, electric field, magnetic field, different types of radiation, etc. This article aims to describe the properties of these intelligent materials, focusing the objective on the specific properties of piezoelectric materials, which nowadays play a major role in the so-called smart materials for application in mechatronics, using the available literature data as well as several years of authors’ professional experience as professors in the field of engineering, materials science, and technology. Results from this article provide a summary of the main properties of piezoelectric materials used for application in mechatronics
