Systems

Dynamics, Sensors, and Controls

Dynamics, sensors and controls are how electromechanical systems interact with people and their surroundings. Sensors, actuators and intelligent computer software work together to enable us to build smart systems such as windows that sense and cancel noise, energy efficient buildings that predict and adjust to our needs, robots that can work alongside humans as teammates, and vehicles (cars, planes, spaceships and undersea craft) that can guide themselves.
