Mechatronics has evolved into a way of life in engineering practice, and indeed pervades virtually every aspect of the modern world. As the synergistic integration of mechanical, electrical, and computer systems, the successful implementation of mechatronic systems requires the integrated expertise of specialists from each of these areas. Destined to become a standard reference for engineering professionals around the world, The Mechatronics Handbook provides a unique, detailed overview of this vibrant, dynamic field and sets forth its state of the art. More than 60 articles authored by a stellar panel of academics and practitioners explore every facet of the field, from an overview of its history, through the underlying theories, systems, processes, and practice to perspectives on the field's current and future trends. The world of mechatronics is wide open, full of potential and bright possibilities. The Mechatronics Handbook is a landmark work that is both your portal to that world and your roadmap through its intricacies.
