Unlike other texts on mechatronics that focus on derivations and calculations, Introduction to Mechatronic Design, 1e, takes a narrative approach, emphasizing the importance of building intuition and understanding before diving into the math.
The authors believe that integration is the core of mechatronics-and students must have a command of each of the domains to create the balance necessary for successful mechatronic design-and devote sections of the book to each area, including mechanical, electrical, and software disciplines, as well as a section on system design and engineering.
A robust package of teaching and learning resources accompanies the book. A focus on developing intuition. The authors believe that developing intuition enables students to move from problem statements to problem solutions and, as a result, create new designs.
This approach is taken throughout the book. In Chapter 9, Basic Circuit Elementsthe material is presented with a running fluid flow analogy to help develop intuition about the behavior of basic circuit elements.
The book helps students develop the ability to understand a data sheet for devices they have not seen or used before. Unlike other textbooks on the subject, this text provides substantial coverage of each engineering domain.
While software design is often omitted from other texts, most of the software section of this text is devoted to software design as opposed to the mechanics of any intfoduction software language or microcontroller architecture. The authors believe that software introductioj be designed and carefully planned, and provide structures which serve to help organize the design of software specific to embedded systems. A section devoted to Systems Design. System design as a topic is also missing from most other texts.
The authors devote a section of the book to the topic, including chapters covering rapid prototyping, troubleshooting, project planning and management, and finally a case study that shows how two student introductipn unfolded, and highlights the process of integration, and the alternatives and design decisions that were made along the way.

Integration can be both a blessing introductipn a curse in mechatronics. The authors believe that the best mechatronic solutions take full advantage of the flexibility and opportunities that result from combining the disciplines.
However, since those new to the subject tend to underestimate the difficulty of integration, the authors offer tools and guidance to lead the student through the material successfully. This text is fully intrdouction by a package of robust resources, for both instructors and students, containing well thought-out and vigorously tested for over 15 years lab assignments, hardware, and software.
This medium allows instructors to share experiences, ask for advice and receive feedback from both the authors and the instructor community. Instructors can preview the site at http: Select “View the Community Wiki” and log in using a user name of wikiuser with a password of bear3lemon.
He received his Ph.
Introduction to Mechatronic Design
Prior to that, he received an M. He spent eight years in the Detroit area working in and about the auto industry. During that time he worked for Ford, GM and AMC on electronic engine control systems, predominantly for turbo-charged engines.
He has an active design consultancy that has tackled such varied projects as an engine controller for an outboard motor manufacturer, an automated blood gas analyzer, and a turbo-charger boost control system for a new type of turbo-charger. Kenny’s research group is researching fundamental issues and applications of micromechanical structures. These devices are usually fabricated from silicon wafers using cwrryer circuit fabrication tools.
carryr Using these techniques, the group builds sensitive accelerometers, infrared detectors, and force-sensing cantilevers. This research has many applications, including integrated packaging, inertial navigation, fundamental force measurements, experiments on bio-molecules, device cooling, bio-analytical instruments, and small robots.
Because this research field is multidisciplinary in nature, work in this group is characterized by strong collaborations with other departments, introducyion well as with local industry. I was also impressed with the concise and clear way topics are introduced and explained.
My students get an introduction to Mechatronics then have a textbook to take with them after the course that they can continue to use and learn from.
I also really enjoyed the project discussion and trying to put into words what needs to happen in a good design process! There is a lot to assimilate with many useful chapters that contain pedagogical examples and a wealth of practical information. It reflects years of hardware experience from the authors.
