The integration of electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, control and computer engineering - mechatronics - lies at the heart of innumerable gadgets, processes and technology that make modern life possible. 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. It also goes much deeper, explaining 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.
