              The term mechatronics was coined in 1969, merging mecha from mechanism and tronics from electronics, to reflect the original idea at the basis of this discipline, i.e., the integration of electrical and mechanical systems into a single device. The spread of this term, and of mech...atronics itself, has been growing in the years, including new aspects and disciplines, like control engineering, computer engineering and communication/information engineering. Nowadays mechatronics has a well-defined and fundamental role, in strict relation with robotics. Drawing a sharp border between mechatronics and robotics is quite impossible, as they share many technologies and objectives. Advanced robots could be defined as mechatronic devices equipped with a smart brain , but there are also up-to-date mechatronic devices, used in tight interaction with humans, that are governed by smart architectures (e.g., for safety purposes). Aim of this book is to offer a wide overview of new research trends and challenges for both mechatronics and robotics, through the contribution of researchers from different institutions, providing their view on specific subjects they consider as hot topics in both fields, with attention to new fields of application, new challenges to the research communities and new technologies available. The reader of this book will enjoy the various contributions, as they have been prepared with actual applications in mind, along a journey from advanced actuators and sensors to human-robot interaction, through robot control, navigation, planning and programming issues. The book presents several state-of-the-art solutions, like multiple-stage actuation to cope with conflicting specification of large motion-spans and ultra-high accuracy, model-based control for high-tech mechatronic systems, modern approaches of software systems engineering to robotics, humanoids for human assistance, etc. The reader can find also new techniques in approaching the design of mechatronic sys
