What is control theory? In this video, researchers in the lab of UC San Diego electrical and computer engineering professor Jorge Poveda explain control theory and its real-world applications. From the cruise control in your car to the management of invasive species, control theory is at work all around us. Poveda lab members provide a glimpse into their ongoing work, showing how they're advancing the field of controls to make systems smarter and more robust.
