Bath Workshop on Power Transmission and Motion Control
A collection of 25 papers from the fifth international Power Transmission and Motion Control Workshop, that was held at the University of Bath in September 2003. The focus of the volume is principally on motion control systems, with an emphasis on hydraulic and pneumatic systems and components as the means of power transmission. The book will be of considerable interest to researchers and practitioners concerned with mechatronics, and drive systems and their control.
