Recently, many researchers in controls and robotics have explored complicated problems arising from societal needs and concerns and directed leading-edge research teams to address those challenge problems, in which design and control of biofunctionalized systems based on measured biological responses are the central issue.
Biomedical Robotics and Bio-mechatronic Systems Applications delivers essential and advanced bioengineering information in the application of control and robotics technologies in the life sciences. In the next few years, there will be many more exciting developments in this area. Judging by what we have witnessed so far, this exciting field of control systems and robotics in bioengineering is likely to produce revolutionary breakthroughs over the next decade.
The book is intended for senior undergraduate or graduate students in both control engineering and biomedical engineering programs. It may also appeal to medical researchers and practitioners who want to enhance their quantitative understanding of physiological processes and perhaps get a new vantage point from which they can attack their current problems.
