Mechatronics An Introduction – Robert H. Bishop – 1st Edition

Description

According to the original definition of that the Yasakawa Company proposed and the definitions that have since appeared, many engineering products designed and manufactured in the last thirty years that integrate mechanical and electrical systems can be classified as mechatronic systems.

Mechatronics has evolved into a way of life in engineering practice, and it pervades virtually every aspect of the modern world. In chapters drawn from the best-selling and now standard engineering reference, the Mechatronics , this book introduces the vibrant field of mechatronics and its key elements: modeling; sensors and actuators; ; and systems; and software and data acquisition.

These chapters, written by leading academics and practitioners, were carefully selected and organized to provide an accessible, general outline of the subject ideal for non-specialists. Clear explanations and nearly 200 illustrations help bring the subject to life.
