Applied Mechatronics synthesizes the disciplines of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering to provide a comprehensive overview of the various technologies and tools used to develop mechatronic devices.
Co-written by Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering lecturers who co-teach this interdisciplinary course, this text highlights the information each discipline might have considered prerequisite so students can focus on material new to them. Designed for a first course in mechatronics, it contains numerous practical, classroom-tested examples, experiments, and simulations using SIMULINK, MATLAB, and LabVIEW, and presents material in a format that lends itself to collaborative, project-based learning.
