The first comprehensive and up-to-date reference on mechatronics, Robert Bishop's The Mechatronics Handbook was quickly embraced as the gold standard in the field. With updated coverage on all aspects of mechatronics, The Mechatronics Handbook, Second Edition is now available as a two-volume set. Each installment offers focused coverage of a particular area of mechatronics, supplying a convenient and flexible source of specific information. This seminal work is still the most exhaustive, state-of-the-art treatment of the field available.

Focusing on the most rapidly changing areas of mechatronics, this book discusses signals and systems control, computers, logic systems, software, and data acquisition. It begins with coverage of the role of control and the role modeling in mechatronic design, setting the stage for the more fundamental discussions on signals and systems. The volume reflects the profound impact the development of not just the computer, but the microcomputer, embedded computers, and associated information technologies and software advances. The final sections explore issues surrounding computer software and data acquisition.

  • Covers modern aspects of control design using optimization techniques from H2 theory

  • Discusses the roles of adaptive and nonlinear control and neural networks and fuzzy systems

  • Includes discussions of design optimization for mechatronic systems and real-time monitoring and control

  • Focuses on computer hardware and associated issues of logic, communication, networking, architecture, fault analysis, embedded computers, and programmable logic controllers
