What Are Control Systems? (03:23)
We are introduced to different kinds of control systems, including the eyes and the brain. Every application of a control system stems from a single question: How can we do things better than before?
Computer-Based Systems (05:07)
A computer is any programmable machine that performs high-speed processing of numbers, text, graphics, and sound. All computers contain a CPU. All control systems have sensors, processors/controllers, and actuators.
Sub-Systems: Open or Closed Loop Systems (03:24)
Each sub-system has to be either an open or closed loop system. Viewers learn the difference between the two types through real-life examples.
Block Diagrams (02:23)
Block diagrams are graphic representations of the interconnections of the sub-systems. Viewers see examples of block diagrams and learn about how they are used.
Application of Computer-Based Systems (03:42)
Computer-based systems have applications in medicine, education, manufacturing, and more. We learn about servo-robots, non-servo point-to-point robots, and servo-continuous robots.
