The PowerCylinder™, as a hydro-mechanical device, will rely heavily on the emerging science of Mechatronics, the integration of the Mechanical, Electrical, and Computer Engineering disciplines as it is integrated into industrial and commercial applications. One of the people on the forefront of Mechatronics is Dr. David G. Alciatore, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Colorado State University, Fort Collins. With Dr. Michael B. Histand, Dr. Alciatore has written the premier textbook on Mechatronics.
