This book contains mechatronics laboratory exercises designed to give the student hands-on experience with applications of the concepts covered in a mechatronics course. 14 laboratory exercises are included plus a section that has a list of suggested extended or final projects. The first six laboratory exercises are designed to illustrate basic measurements, electrical circuits and electronic concepts. Later exercises focus on microcontrollers, timing and state-transition diagrams, sensors, stepper motors, and feedback control.
