Mechatronics 2019: Recent Advances Towards Industry 4.0 by Roman Szewczyk, Jiri Krejsa, Michal Nowicki, and Anna Ostaszewska-Lizewska | PDF Free Download.
Assoc. Prof. Roman Szewczyk received both Ph.D. and DSc in the field of mechatronics. He is specializing in the modeling of properties of magnetic materials as well as in sensors and sensor interfacing, in particular magnetic sensors for security applications.
He is leading the development of a sensing unit for a mobile robot developed for the Polish Police Central Forensic Laboratory and of methods of non-destructive testing based on the magnetoelastic effect.
He was involved in over ten European Union-funded research projects within the FP6 and FP7 as well as projects financed by the European defense organization.
Moreover, he was leading two regional- and national-scale technological foresight projects and was active in the organization and implementation of technology transfer between companies and research institutes.
He is Secretary for Scientific Affairs in the Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements PIAP. He is also an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Mechatronics, Warsaw University of Technology, and Vice-chairman of the Academy of Young Researchers of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
Prof. Jiri Krejsa received his Ph.D. at the Technical University of Brno in the field of solid mechanics but immediately drifted to mechatronics.
After a year spent at the University of Southern California, where he acted as a project lead in the development of a digital microscopy imaging system, he returned to Brno where he works until now.
He is focused on the area of usage of artificial intelligence in engineering and mobile robotics. He is a member of the Czech Academy of Sciences and a member of the Technical Committee for Robotics and Mechatronics at IFToMM. He is a co-founder and CEO of Bender Robotics company.
Ph.D. Michal Nowicki received his Ph.D. in the field of mechatronics, specialty sensors, and measurement systems. He is actively involved in the development of new magnetic and magneto-mechanical measurement systems, investigation of novel magnetic materials, as well as design of sensors.
His research work is conducted in cooperation with the Institute of Physics of Slovak Academy of Sciences and the National Space Agency of Ukraine. The specialties of Michał Nowicki are experimental setup design and knowledge mining.

During the last few years, the global scientific and technological communities observe dramatic changes in the industry. This revolution, called transformation towards Industry 4.0, determines new paradigms resulting in process optimization tendencies and leading to increasing the production volume with simultaneous reduction of involved resources.
To achieve this goal, cyber-physical systems with artificial intelligence capabilities are commonly introduced to production lines, resulting in a dramatic increase of processed and stored data, as well as the subsequent development of completely new IT infrastructure, such as 5G mobile phone network standards.
Such a radical transformation of industry is not a choice, but a necessity. The radical increase of a number of people on Earth together with natural expectations of increasing the quality of life around the world leads to unsustainable development and environmental burden.
As a result, the forthcoming generations will be forced to consume less than us facing natural resource depletion. The only way to avoid such a scenario is the wide implementation of optimized, adaptive cyber-physical production systems.
As a result, we observe the intensive development of IT systems and artificial intelligence algorithms. On the other hand, an efficient production line requires highly developed mechatronics systems, which truly determine its productivity.
However, mechatronics seems to be neglected in changes of Industry 4.0, whereas it will play a decisive role in further success or defeat of our technical civilization.
We hope that this book will be the first step to restoring mechatronics to the right rank. This book presents the results of intense discussions during the Mechatronics 2019 Conference held in Warsaw, 16–18 September 2019, gathering scientists from Poland, the Czech Republic, Korea, Ukraine, and France.
Topics cover both modeling and experimental verification of performance of advanced mechatronic systems, system integration, and its reliability, maintenance, and development of robotics, automation, and measurement systems, as well as MEMS and biomedical applications, focused on the rapidly aging population.
