Mechatronics: Electronic Control Systems in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering pdf

Book Description :

The integration of electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, control, and computer engineering – Mechatronics – lies at the heart of the innumerable gadgets, processes, and technology without which modern life would seem impossible. 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.
