Fundamentals of Mechatronics, SI Edition
(ISBN-10: 1111569029 | ISBN-13: 9781111569020)
The objective of FUNDAMENTALS OF MECHATRONICS is to cover both hardware and software aspects of mechatronics systems in a single text, giving a complete treatment to the subject matter. The text focuses on application considerations and relevant practical issues that arise in the selection and design of mechatronics components and systems. The text uses several programming languages to illustrate the key topics. Different programming platforms are presented to give instructors the choice to select the programming language most suited to their course objectives. A separate laboratory book, with additional exercises is provided to give guided hands-on experience with many of the topics covered in the text.

Laboratory Exercises in Mechatronics
(ISBN-10: 1111570256 | ISBN-13: 9781111570255)
This book contains mechatronics laboratory exercises designed to give the student hands-on experience with applications of the concepts covered in a mechatronics course. 14 laboratory exercises are included plus a section that has a list of suggested extended or final projects. The first six laboratory exercises are designed to illustrate basic measurements, electrical circuits and electronic concepts. Later exercises focus on microcontrollers, timing and state-transition diagrams, sensors, stepper motors, and feedback control.

Mechatronics System Design
(ISBN-10: 143906198X | ISBN-13: 9781439061985)
This text by Shetty and Kolk, blends the pertinent aspects of mechatronics--system modeling, simulation, sensors, actuation, real-time computer interfacing, and control--into a single unified result suitable for use in the college-level mechatronic curriculum. Students are introduced to all the topics needed to develop a good understanding of the basic principles used in mechatronics technology through the use of examples, problems and case studies, all of which can be quickly and affordably assembled and investigated in laboratory settings. Core aspects are combined with practical industrial applications and are presented in an opitimal way for understanding. The book features extensive coverage of the modeling and simulation of physical systems made possible by block-diagrams, the modified analogy approach to modeling, and state-of-the-art visual simulation software. A collection of case studies drawn from a variety of industries (complete with parts, lists, setup, and instructions) are used to support the authors' applied, design-oriented approach. Readers of this text will be equipped with all the tools necessary to plan, test, and implement a well-designed mechatronic system.
