- Why is it needed?
A control system uses inputs from various sensors to drive actuators to control part of a system.
- What makes it special?
- In Less than one 14th of a second the engine can detect changes in conditions such as rain, and modify it’s behaviour in response
- Control systems must be able to survive lightning, fire and cosmic radiation
- It is expected to last 30 years – rather than the 5 years expected from a laptop
- Who’s involved?
