Mechatronics: A Multidisciplinary Approach

Mechatronics: A Multidisciplinary Approach Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The integration of electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, control and computer engineering – Mechatronics – lies at the heart of the innumerable gadgets, processes and technology without which modern life would seem impossible. From auto-focus cameras to car engine management systems, and from state-of-the-art robots to the humble washing machine, Mechatronics has a hand in them all.

This book presents a clear and comprehensive introduction to the area. Practical and applied, it helps you to acquire the mix of skills you will need to comprehend and design mechatronic systems. But it also goes much deeper in that it explains the very philosophy of Mechatronics, and, in so doing, provides you with a frame of understanding to develop a truly interdisciplinary and integrated approach to engineering.

Key features of this fourth edition:

  • New chapter introduces Artificial Intelligence
  • New four-part structure groups key themes with a consolidating and integrating final chapter
  • Even more case studies to put the theory into context and boost your understanding
  • Even more use of models for mechatronic systems
  • End of chapter exercises to help test your learning

Mechatronics is essential reading for students requiring an introduction to this exciting area at undergraduate and higher diploma level.

Bill Bolton was formerly Consultant to the Further Education Unit and Head of Research and Development and Monitoring at BTEC. He has also been a UNESCO consultant and is the author of many successful engineering textbooks.

 

Synopsis:

This text gives a clear and comprehensive introduction to the area of Mechatronics. It is practical and applied, giving a solid understanding of the key skills and interdisciplinary approach required to successfully design Mechatronic systems. Plenty of case-studies, and use of models for mechatronic systems, help give a real-world context, whilst self-test questions and exercises help test understanding.
