The Mechatronics Handbook 2 Volume Set Excerpt :

The first comprehensive reference on mechatronics, The Mechatronics Handbook was quickly embraced as the gold standard in the field. From washing machines, to coffeemakers, to cell phones, to the ubiquitous PC in almost every household, what, these days, doesn’t take advantage of mechatronics in its design and function? In the scant five years since the initial publication of the handbook, the latest generation of smart products has made this even more obvious. Too much material to cover in a single volume Originally a single-volume reference, the handbook has grown along with the field. The need for easy access to new material on rapid changes in technology, especially in computers and software, has made the single volume format unwieldy. The second edition is offered as two easily digestible books, making the material not only more accessible, but also more focused. Completely revised and updated, Robert Bishop’s seminal work is still the most exhaustive, state-of-the-art treatment of the field available.

Interfacing Humans and Robots for Gait Assistance and Rehabilitation Excerpt :

The concepts represented in this textbook are explored for the first time in assistive and rehabilitation robotics, which is the combination of physical, cognitive, and social human-robot interaction to empower gait rehabilitation and assist human mobility. The aim is to consolidate the methodologies, modules, and technologies implemented in lower-limb exoskeletons, smart walkers, and social robots when human gait assistance and rehabilitation are the primary targets. This book presents the combination of emergent technologies in healthcare applications and robotics science, such as soft robotics, force control, novel sensing methods, brain-computer interfaces, serious games, automatic learning, and motion planning. From the clinical perspective, case studies are presented for testing and evaluating how those robots interact with humans, analyzing acceptance, perception, biomechanics factors, and physiological mechanisms of recovery during the robotic assistance or therapy. Interfacing Humans and Robots for Gait Assistance and Rehabilitation will enable undergraduate and graduate students of biomedical engineering, rehabilitation engineering, robotics, and health sciences to understand the clinical needs, technology, and science of human-robot interaction behind robotic devices for rehabilitation, and the evidence and implications related to the implementation of those devices in actual therapy and daily life applications.

Laws and Models Excerpt :

The "laws" that govern our physical universe come in many guises-as principles, theorems, canons, equations, axioms, models, and so forth. They may be empirical, statistical, or theoretical, their names may reflect the person who first expressed them, the person who publicized them, or they might simply describe a phenomenon. However they may be named, the discovery and application of physical laws have formed the backbone of the sciences for 3,000 years. They exist by thousands. Laws and Models: Science, Engineering, and Technology-the fruit of almost 40 years of collection and research-compiles more than 1,200 of the laws and models most frequently encountered and used by engineers and technologists. The result is a collection as fascinating as it is useful. Each entry consists of a statement of the law or model, its date of origin, a one-line biography of the people involved in its formulation, sources of information about the law, and cross-references. Illustrated and highly readable, this book offers a unique presentation of the vast and rich collection of laws that rule our universe. Everyone with an interest in the inner workings of nature-from engineers to students, from teachers to journalists-will find Laws and Models to be not only a handy reference, but an engaging volume to read and browse.

Mechatronic Modeling and Simulation Using Bond Graphs Excerpt :

Bond graphs are especially well-suited for mechatronic systems, as engineering system modeling is best handled using a multidisciplinary approach. Bond graphing permits one to see the separate components of an engineering system as a unified whole, and allows these components to be categorized under a few generalized elements, even when they come from different disciplines. In addition to those advantages, the bond graph offers a visual representation of a system from which derivation of the governing equations is algorithmic. This makes the design process accessible to beginning readers, providing them with a practical understanding of mechatronic systems. Mechatronic Modeling and Simulation Using Bond Graphs is written for those who have some hands-on experience with mechatronic systems, enough to appreciate the value of computer modeling and simulation. Avoiding elaborate mathematical derivations and proofs, the book is written for modelers seeking practical results in addition to theoretical confirmations. Key concepts are revealed step-by-step, supported by the application of rudimentary examples that allow readers to develop confidence in their approach right from the start. For those who take the effort to master its application, the use of bond graph methodology in system modeling can be very satisfying in the way it unifies information garnered from different disciplines. In the second half of the book after readers have learned how to develop bond graph models, the author provides simulation results for engineering examples that encourage readers to model, simulate, and practice as they progress through the chapters. Although the models can be simulated using any number of software tools, the text employs 20Sim for all the simulation work in this text. A free version of the software can be downloaded from the 20Sim Web site.
