Mechatronics has emerged as its own discipline over the past decade, yet no reference has lived up to the demands of being a working guide for designing and implementing the new generation of mechatronic systems. Uniting an international team of leading experts, Mechatronic Systems: Devices, Design, Control, Operation and Monitoring rises to the challenge of providing a practical, comprehensive, and detailed guide to the theory and application of modern mechatronics.
This book treats all components of the mechatronic system as a unified whole, combining mechanics, electronics, intelligent control, sensors, actuators, and communication networks through integrated design. Extensive cross-referencing lends this work a coherence not found in other books on mechatronics, which amount to little more than collections of papers.
