Written for senior-level undergraduate courses in mechatronics, this book provides a modern treatment of the computer-based mixed systems integration. The book covers fundamental topics starting with the physical properties, continuing with mathematical modeling and computer simulation, and ending with applications illustrated by numerically and experimentally generated results. Examples throughout the text are solved using
. In addition,
, Real-Time Windows Target, Simulink Real-Time, and the Data Acquisition Toolbox are briefly introduced.
