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.

Dr. Devdas Shetty serves as Dean and Professor at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Dean Shetty previously served as Dean of Engineering at Lawrence Technological Institute and Dean of Research at the University of Hartford. At the University of Hartford, Dr. Shetty was Director of the Engineering Applications Center, through which he established partnerships with more than 50 Connecticut industries. At Lawrence Technological University, he initiated several new academic programs, established partnerships, and contributed to curricular innovation. Prior to going to Hartford, Dr. Shetty held academic positions at the Albert Nerkin School of Engineering at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City. Dr. Shetty is the author of three books and more than 200 scientific articles and has obtained six patents. Dr. Shetty's research work has been cited for original contribution to the understanding of engineering surface measurement, for significant intellectual achievements in mechatronics, and for contributions to product design. He is the recipient of academic and research grants from organizations such as the National Science Foundation, Society of Manufacturing Engineers, U.S. Army, and U.S. Air Force. Shetty led research efforts in a U.S. Army research project on unmanned aerial vehicles. In partnership with Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, he invented the patented mechatronics process for supporting patients. Dr. Shetty has chaired several international conferences and presented keynote lectures. Major honors received by Dr. Shetty include the James Frances Bent award for Creativity, the Edward S. Roth National Award for Manufacturing from the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineer Faculty Award, and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers Honor Award. He is an elected member of the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering.
