This course describes the automatic control systems and their application to automation and robotics tasks. Automatic control is crucial in the generation and transmission of energy, process control in manufacturing, communication, transportation and even entertainment. The range of career opportunities offered by the automatic control has expanded greatly and has new challenges to be addressed throughout the course. Thus, this course describes not only a theoretical concepts but also from practical ones with special attention to computer control systems.
