Introduction to Mechatronics
Introduction to Mechatronics and Measurement Systems. This text provides comprehensive coverage of the field of mechatronics for mechanical, electrical and aerospace engineering majors. The author presents a concise review of electrical circuits, solid-state devices, digital circuits, and motors.
Mechatronics design considerations are presented throughout the text and in Design Example. The text’s numerous illustrations, examples, class discussion items, and chapter questions provide an opportunity to understand and apply concepts.
Online video demonstration available for viewing. The clips show and describe electronic components, mechatronic device and system examples, and laboratory exercise demonstrations.
Mathcad and Matlab files for performing analyses throughout the book. The files can be downloaded and edited to perform similar and expanded analyses.
Dr. David G. Alciatore and Michael B. Histand of the Colorado State University in Mechanical Engineering have books and info for Robotics and Mechatronic Students.
