Mechatronics is the fusion of mechanics and electronics in the design of intelligent machines. Such machines now play an important role in consumer products, transport systems, manufacturing and the service sector. This book sets out the fundamentals of mechatronics and the engineering concepts and techniques that underpin the subject: planning, search techniques, sensors, actuators, control systems and architectures. This student guide discusses the building blocks of mechatronic systems in terms of the subsystems for perception, cognition and execution, as a framework for designing intelligent machines such as video cameras, robots, and automatic guided vehicles.fluid power 210 fly-by-wire aircraft 21 fly-by-wire system 308 food processing 10, 211 force balance accelerometer 55 force-sensitive ... 130 hierarchical control 283 hierarchical decomposition of a task 284, 285, 286 hierarchical model 155 hierarchical structure 283, 276 ... 213 hydraulic machinery 214 hydraulic power 213 hydraulic pumps 196 hydraulic system 268, 269, 270 hydraulic technology 210anbsp;...
