Introduction to Mechatronic Design

2 - 4 weeks availability


Introduction to Mechatronic Design is ideal for upper level and graduate Mechatronics courses in Electrical, Computing, or Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering. ' Unlike other texts on mechatronics that focus on derivations and calculations, Introduction to Mechatronics, 1e, takes a narrative approach, emphasizing the importance of building intuition and understanding before diving into the math. The authors believe that integration is the core of mechatronics--and students must have a command of each of the domains to create the balance necessary for successful mechatronic design--and devote sections of the book to each area, including mechanical, electrical, and software disciplines, as well as a section on system design and engineering. A robust package of teaching and learning resources accompanies the book.

About Author

Ed Carryer is the Director of the Smart Product Design Laboratory (SPDL) in the Design Division of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. He is currently a Consulting Professor in the Design Division of Mechanical Engineering. He received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 1992. Prior to that, he received an M.S. in Bio-Medical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1978. His B.S.E. was awarded from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1975, where he was a member (1/3) of the first graduating class of the Education and Experience in Engineering (E 3)program.

Dr. Carryer's industrial experience varies wildly, from designing water treatment facilities for coal and nuclear power plants for Sargent & Lundy to designing the electronic controller for an Arctic Heated Glove under contract to NASA. He spent eight years in the Detroit area working in and about the auto industry. During that time he worked for Ford, GM and AMC on electronic engine control systems, predominantly for turbo-charged engines. He has an active design consultancy that has tackled such varied projects as an engine controller for an outboard motor manufacturer, an automated blood gas analyzer, and a turbo-charger boost control system for a new type of turbo-charger.

Matt Ohline is an Associate Consulting Professor in the Design Division of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University.

Thomas Kenny is a Professor in the Mechanical Engineering department at Stanford University. Dr. Kenny received his PhD in Physics from UC Berkeley.

Dr. Kenny's research group is researching fundamental issues and applications of micromechanical structures. These devices are usually fabricated from silicon wafers using integrated circuit fabrication tools. Using these techniques, the group builds sensitive accelerometers, infrared detectors, and force-sensing cantilevers. This research has many applications, including integrated packaging, inertial navigation, fundamental force measurements, experiments on bio-molecules, device cooling, bio-analytical instruments, and small robots. Because this research field is multidisciplinary in nature, work in this group is characterized by strong collaborations with other departments, as well as with local industry.
