Mechatronics by Robert H. Bishop

Book Description

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 bestselling and now standard engineering reference, The Mechatronics Handbook, this book introduces the vibrant field of mechatronics and its key elements: physical system modeling; sensors and actuators; signals and systems; computers and logic 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. Mechatronics: An Introduction first defines and organizes the key elements of mechatronics, exploring design approach, system interfacing, instrumentation, control systems, and microprocessor-based controllers and microelectronics. It then surveys physical system modeling, introducing MEMS along with modeling and simulation. Coverage then moves to essential elements of sensors and actuators, including characteristics and fundamentals of time and frequency, followed by control systems and subsystems, computer hardware, logic, system interfaces, communication and computer networking, data acquisition, and computer-based instrumentation systems. Clear explanations and nearly 200 illustrations help bring the subject to life. Providing a broad overview of the fundamental aspects of the field, Mechatronics: An Introduction is an ideal primer for those new to the field, a handy review for those already familiar with the technology, and a friendly introduction for anyone who is curious about mechatronics.

Books By Author Robert H. Bishop

Mechatronic Systems, Sensors, and Actuators by Robert H. Bishop Mechatronic Systems, Sensors, and Actuators, Hardback (November 2007)

Offers an introduction to the field of mechatronics. This book defines mechatronics, outlines design and control approaches, and details various methods of modeling the physical aspects of mechatronic systems. It also discusses multi-body flexible dynamics, kinematics and dynamics of robots, and computer simulation of physical systems.

Mechatronic System Control, Logic, and Data Acquisition by Robert H. Bishop Mechatronic System Control, Logic, and Data Acquisition, Hardback (November 2007)

Examines the various signals acquired and used in mechatronics and the control systems that depend upon these signals. This book introduces the role of control in mechatronics, and examines such topics as state space analysis, dynamic system response, Kalman filters as dynamic system state observers, and neural and fuzzy controllers.
