"Industrial Automation and Robotics provides a basic but technical introduction to the field of robotics in industrial applications, and covers the basic mechanical and electrical concepts involved and how they are used in automation. Chapters survey physics laws and basic principles of operation, closely inspect circuitry and fluidics, and add information on the programming and operations of robots. Packed with technical discussions and an attention to an overview that is clear and definitive, Industrial Automation and Robotics is recommended as a basic introduction for any novice entering the field."--The Technology Shelf, The Bookwatch "Midwest Book Review "
