Mechatronics is today fast developing as an interdisciplinary branch of engineering. This book offers a comprehensive coverage of the design and application of mechatronic systems. It discusses in detail the construction, operation, features and applications of various components of mechatronic systems. The text, profusely illustrated with diagrams, emphasizes the readers’ multidisciplinary skills and ability to design and maintain different mechatronic systems. Key Features : • Motivational assignments given at the end of each chapter and the Case Studies provided at the end of the book direct the readers to applications of mechatronics concepts in the real-world problems encountered in engineering practice. • Separate chapters are devoted to the advanced topics of Robotics and Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS). • The text is supported by a fair number of photographs of mechatronic systems and their components. This student-friendly text is primarily intended for the students of undergraduate and diploma courses in mechanical, electronics, industrial, and mechatronics engineering. It will also be of immense use to practising engineers.
This book, the first in the Woodhead Publishing Reviews: Mechanical Engineering Series, is a collection of high quality articles (full research articles, review articles and cases studies) with a special emphasis on research and development in mechatronics and manufacturing engineering. Mechatronics is the blending of mechanical, electronic, and computer engineering into an integrated design. Today, mechatronics has a significant and increasing impact on engineering with emphasis on the design, development and operation of manufacturing engineering systems. The main objective of this interdisciplinary engineering field is the study of automata from an engineering perspective, thinking on the...
