From large-scale industrial systems to components in consumer applications, mechatronics has woven itself into the very fabric of modern technology. Among the most important elements of mechatronic systems are electromagnetic sensors and electromechanical actuators. Cultivated over years of industrial and research experience, Sensors and Actuators in Mechatronics: Design and Applications builds a practical understanding of the features and functions of various electromagnetic and electromechanical devices necessary to meet specific industrial requirements. This work focuses on various components that receive less attention in the available literature, such as magnetic sensors, linear and latching solenoid actuators, stepper motors, rotary actuators, and other special magnetic devices including magnetic valves and heart pumps. Each chapter follows a consistent format, working from theory to design, applications, and numerical problems and solutions. Although the crux of the coverage is design and application, the author also discusses optimization and testing, introduces magnetic materials, and shares his enlightened perspective on the social and business aspects of developing world-class technologies. Examples from mainly the automotive industry illustrate the wide variety of mechatronic devices presented. Providing a complete picture from conception to completion, Sensors and Actuators in Mechatronics: Design and Applications places critical tools in the hands of any researcher or engineer seeking to develop innovative mechatronic systems.

Unlike other treatments of sensors or actuators, this book approaches the devices from the point of view of the fundamental coupling mechanism between the electrical and mechanical behaviour. The principles of operation of the solenoid are the same in both cases, and this book thus treats them together. It begins with a discussion of systems analysis as a tool for modelling transducers, before turning to a detailed discussion of transduction mechanisms. The whole is rounded off by an input/output analysis of transducers.

Microactuators provides a comprehensive coverage of the emerging topic of microactuators that has attracted much attention in recent years. Largely owing to the microfabrication methods used in the microelectrics industry, microactuators are being developed at a very fast rate. Although there have been some excellent review articles covering parts of this important field, until now there has not been a single book devoted to its comprehensive coverage. Microactuators covers the fundamentals of actuation in a textbook manner and it exposes the reader to some research examples. In combining fundamentals with the latest reported actuators, this book distinguishes itself from other monographs or textbooks. The main intended audiences of Microactuators are academic and industrial researchers and graduate students interested in initiating projects in microactuators. It can also be used as a textbook for a senior/graduate level course in the general area of sensors and actuators.

This undergraduate textbook introduces students to the principles and applications of sensors and actuators, crossing multiple disciplines including aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering. An excellent professional reference for those needing to learn the basics of sensing and actuation, this book is a good choice for industry training seminars. This book "connects the dots" of theory and circuits basics into meaningful systems and real-world applications. Designed to introduce students and practitioners to the principles and applications of sensors and actuators, this book discusses processing hardware and the embedded systems software that connects them. It is written based on the theory that a system is made of three components: Inputs, Outputs and Processors and looks at sensors and actuators based on the broad area of detection. Important coverage is given to interfacing (the processes and mechanisms between the sensor and actuator) that make a system work reliably and accurately. The material is presented with clear explanations, examples and diagrams, making it ideal for students and practitioners concerned with systems engineering in a broad variety of fields, especially those that depend on sensors for detecting pre-determined conditions.

Like the previous editions also the third edition of this book combines the detailed physical modeling of mechatronic systems and their precise numerical simulation using the Finite Element (FE) method. Thereby, the basic chapter concerning the Finite Element (FE) method is enhanced, provides now also a description of higher order finite elements (both for nodal and edge finite elements) and a detailed discussion of non-conforming mesh techniques. The author enhances and improves many discussions on principles and methods. In particular, more emphasis is put on the description of single fields by adding the flow field. Corresponding to these field, the book is augmented with the new chapter about coupled flow-structural mechanical systems. Thereby, the discussion of computational aeroacoustics is extended towards perturbation approaches, which allows a decomposition of flow and acoustic quantities within the flow region. Last but not least, applications are updated and restructured so that the book meets modern demands.

From authors renowned in the fields of engineering and biology, this is the first book to integrate sensor and actuator technology with bioinspired design. Beginning with detailed descriptions of actuation and sensing mechanisms in plants and animals, the authors move on to apply these principles to synthetic design, offering in-depth knowledge of the development of state-of-the-art smart materials and devices. All of this is supported with a range of real-world applications, from tactile sensory systems in insects linked with the development of robotic hands, to the structural colour systems in nature used to inspire camouflage technology. Further examples are given of successful designs along with their integrated autonomous systems, such as flying and swimming, unmanned systems, and autonomous zero-energy building design. With a wide interdisciplinary appeal, this is an ideal resource for any student, practising engineer, or researcher interested in the connection between natural systems and synthetic design.
