Control Systems Summary


Control Systems are software and hardware that controls other equipment.

Most are dedicated or dynamic and use feedback loops.

Robots are great at carrying out routine repetitive tasks and are as flexible as their programming and hardware allows.

Robots learn in two main ways: teach-and-learn or learn-by-example (a bit like school kids!)

EPOS (Electronic Point of Sale) and EFTPOS (Electronic Funds Transfer at Point of Sale) systems play a major role in the retail world.

EPOS systems allow quick payment and careful monitoring of stock and sale patterns that improve profitability and customer satisfaction (apparently!)
